“Seriously, Honey Boo Boo is the decay of Western civilization,” the Maroon 5 frontman told GQ. “Just because so many people watch the show doesn’t mean it’s good.”
Here Comes Honey Boo Boo has been a ratings success for TLC. Over its initial 10-episode season, the series averaged 2.3 million viewers and has already been renewed for a second season. But Levine isn’t drinking Honey Boo Boo’s go-go juice.
“So many people witness atrocities and can’t take their eyes away from them, but that doesn’t mean they’re good,” he added.
“That show is literally The. Worst. Thing. That’s. Ever. Happened. It’s complete f****** ignorance and the most despicable way to treat your kids. F*** those people,” the American Horror Story: Asylum star said. “You can put that in the magazine: F*** those idiots. They’re just the worst. Sorry, I’m so sensitive to that — like, I don’t know, man, it’s upsetting. Just to clarify, I said, ‘F*** THOSE PEOPLE.'”
However, when it comes to Levine’s Hollywood peers, he seems to be in the minority. Hollywood’s hottest A-listers like Miley Cyrus, Miranda Lambert and Jennifer Lawrence have all dished about their Honey Boo Boo obsessions.
The Hunger Games actress Lawrence even told Jay Leno little Honey Boo Boo was to blame for her recent car accident in Georgia. Lawrence was driving when she passed a breast cancer parade that included people wearing sashes with the word “boobs” on them.
“I thought it was saying ‘Boo Boo,’ and so I was like , ‘Whoa, does that mean there’s Honey Boo Boo?” she told Leno on The Tonight Show. “So I started craning my neck and I saw a little girl, and I was like, ‘That’s Honey Boo Boo!’”
In a fit of excitement over the TLC toddler, Lawrence ended up rear-ending the car in front of her. “I’m sorry that I hit your family,” she explained. “I thought I saw Honey Boo Boo.”
