Maroon 5's lead singer and bad boy of The Voice Adam Levine has some harsh words for the reality TV show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo. In the December issue of GQ magazine, Levine called Honey Boo Boo's family "the decay of Western civilization. Just because so many people watch the show doesn't mean it's good." Brendan Spaar couldn't agree more. This show is encouraging people to be dumb and not try in life. If you are uneducated and have a family that you can barely afford, maybe a reality show will swoop in and save you. As a society we would rather watch this train wreck and laugh at them than feel sorry for the family's misfortune. The truth of the matter is there are many families in rural America just like the Thompsons. Instead of laughing at them on a reality TV show, let's help them. Reality TV is out of control and has turned into a point-and-laugh outlet for snobs.
