Mama June does not play.

Apparently one of Honey Boo Boo's sisters, the one known lovingly as "Pumpkin," went all mean-girls on Instagram, making fun of other kids. Mama June Shannon was not amused, yanking Pumpkin's Internet privileges and demanding that she apologize. TMZ reports it in slightly more colorful language. You can check that out here.

Mama June has been known to law down the law when it comes to technology.

When new episodes featuring 7-year-old Alana Thompson and her family began airing this summer, gadgets factored into the storyline almost right away. In the first of the two episodes that aired when the show relaunched on TLC in July, Mama June confiscated the girls' cell phones, since their "electronical" devices were getting in the way of their chores. The contraband all went into the handiest receptacle, which naturally was an emtpy cheese ball bucket.

"I can't call right now, because I'm in a cheese ball bucket," Mama taunted, when someone's inaccessbile phone rings from within its plastic prison. 

So, maybe Pumpkin's phone went back into the cheese ball bucket until she can learn to play nice.
