Honey Boo Boo’s Girl Scout Cookie Facebook Scheme Shut Down

Oh snap, crackle, thin mint! Honey Boo Boo has been known to holla for many a thing, but it seems like this go-around, it’s the Girls Scouts of the United States of America (GSUSA for short) that are doing the hollering. And it’s not for any good reason.

Seems that Ms. Boo Boo (Alana Thompson for you purists out there) tried to leverage her fame for cookie fortune. In the hopes of helping out a family friend, Thompson took to her Facebook page to peddle America’s Favorite Addiction — Girl Scout cookies — to the masses of fans (more than 701,000 of them) that follow her on the site. Man, what a way to learn the valuable lessons of hard work, determination, social interaction, and general business savvy. Only not really because it’s not exactly allowed. According to TMZ, the GSUSA explained that online selling of their prized goods is off-limits, as it completely defeats the whole purpose of selling the cookies face-to-face in the first place. Woops! Hollywood.com has reached out for comment, but did not hear back at the time of publication.

Thompson and her family were forced to take their advertisement for cookie sales (complete with an autographed box from the whole Honey Boo Boo gang!) offline, but it seems that fans who were quick to order the cookies were successful in achieving their cookie-and-autograph dreams.
