Adam Levine Calls Honey Boo Boo the ‘Decay of Western Civilization’
‘American Horror Story’ star Adam Levine isn’t lacking in the confidence department, but there are a few things that scare him, namely TLC’s ‘Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.’
In an interview with GQ, the ‘Voice’ judge had some harsh words for the popular show, as well as the family of child beauty pageant contestant Alana ‘Honey Boo Boo’ Thompson. “Seriously, Honey Boo Boo is the DECAY of Western civilization,” Levine said. “Just because so many people watch the show doesn’t mean it’s good. So many people witness atrocities and can’t take their eyes away from them, but that doesn’t mean they’re good.”
He continued, “That show is literally The. Worst. Thing. That’s. Ever. Happened. It’s complete f—ing ignorance and the most despicable way to treat your kids. F— those people. 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.’”
Much like McKayla Maroney, Adam Levine is not amused. On a lighter note, the singer joked about how scary Paul Ryan is, and made a case for why he “totally” supports Dave Matthews’ signature moves. Not everything frightens the Grammy-winning star — just don’t get him started on Honey Boo Boo.
