Mark McDaniel, June Shannon’s child molester boyfriend and the center of major controversy, can count on his daughter-in-law in his corner if nothing else.

To hear her tell it, just because he molested a little girl years ago – including June’s daughter Anna Shannon – doesn’t mean that he’s a bad person.

Tell that to Anna and/or Sugar Bear and/or the State of Georgia.

Peaches McDaniel tried defending her father-in-law on Facebook, adding in a defiant tone, “Peoples [sic] past are completely irrelevant to the present.”

“if you are going to judge someone by their past, look at your own first,” Peaches adds. “Michaels [sic] dad is an amazing man, as well an amazing father.”

McDaniel is a registered sex offender after serving 10 years in prison for allegedly (or not allegedly, actually) one of June’s daughters to have oral sex with him.

June and husband Sugar Bear recently called it quits, after which she started dating McDaniel, who was her boyfriend from before he went to prison.

For molesting one of her daughters. Did we mention that part?


TLC canceled Here Comes Honey Boo Boo last week, announcing the reality show featuring June’s family and named after her little daughter won’t return.

The young star herself was recently exposed to the molester.

Shannon and Mark visited Peaches after she gave birth last month, which is when McDaniel was pictured with his hands on Honey Boo Boo’s back.

Wonder how Sugar Bear feels about that revelation.

Mama June previously denied that she’s seen McDaniel since he was released from jail, but the photo evidence – and her split from Sugar Bear – tell a different story.

Now she’s out of a marriage and a show, while her 20-year-old girl has to accept the fact that her mom is dating her molester and touching Honey Boo Boo.

It’ll make you shiver if you think about it any more.
