“Mama” June Shannon is now threatening to sue TLC because she thinks the network unfairly canceled her family’s show when she began dating a convicted child molester, but has yet to pull the plug on the Duggar family’s show amid the recent disclosure that Josh Duggar molested several underage girls, including his sisters.

The network canceled “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” last fall within hours of a picture surfacing of Shannon with Mark McDaniel, a convicted sex offender who had molested Shannon’s daughter Anna. (RELATED: Mama June Lies Her Way Through Entire Dr. Phil Interview)

On Thursday, Josh Duggar of “19 Kids and Counting” admitted that he “acted inexcusably” and was “extremely sorry.” He is accused of molesting several girls when he was a teenager in the early 2000s. (RELATED: Josh Duggar Resigns Amid Molestation Allegations)

“June says she’s out hundreds of thousands of dollars because of the abrupt cancellation of her show, and if the Duggar family stays on the air, she wants to sue the network for what she believes is blatantly unfair and inconsistent treatment,” TMZ reports.

“I read that the Duggar family said, this happening with their son brought them closer to God and each other. So they’re saying it’s ok to have family touch time? Hell no,” Shannon said.
