In an open letter to Honey Boo Boo’s Mom… Dr. Seth Meyers, a Psychologist in West Hollywood expressed his concerns in an open letter to June Shannon.

This child needs a serious intervention.
Published on September 30, 2012 by Seth Meyers, Psy.D.

Dear June,

First, I’ll come clean: I’ve watched an episode of your show. I wish I could say I wasn’t one of the millions of people who’ve tuned in to watch such a rampant mess of crazy characters splattered across the television screen, but I had to know what America’s been buzzing about. Seth Meyers letter

As a psychologist in the media, I feel compelled to reach out as a voice of reason in what appears to be a super-distorted life you lead for your family. Sadly, your show represents the worst of American culture. What’s worse, I get the sense you know that.

When most people watch you and your family, they’re making fun of you. Though millions of Americans are obese and, as a result, should actually identify with you, they’re still making fun of you. That you would put your children into that position concerns me as someone who cares about the emotional welfare of children. 

My biggest concern is the fact that you’ve put your daughter in the lion’s den of child beauty pageants. I’m not being mean when I say your daughter is not a pretty little girl – I’m being honest. In fact, I think that’s one of the main reasons the audience watches: how funny it is to watch such a sad, homely little girl pretend to be a real pageant queen, right? Um, I don’t think so.

I think your daughter has tons of potential and deserves to be more than a Halloween character. Sure, pageants may arguably be fine for some females, for instance, young women with physical beauty or talents that translate well on the stage. But we’re not talking about your daughter when we talk about talent, as least according to what we’ve seen on camera.
