It has been nine days since news broke that Here Comes honey Boo Boo and From Not To Hot star Mama June Shannon and her boyfriend Geno Doak were arrested for crack possession and domestic violence after a heated altercation at an Alabama gas station. The couple has remained quiet about eh arrest and the current state of their relationship, but that all changed on Saturday when they both opened up in the comments of an Instagram post made by Geno.
The photo posted by Geno was a selfie in which he could be seen giving the camera the middle finger. “Contrary to what some may lead you to believe, I do not have any children that are frightened of me,” Geno captioned the picture. “I’ve been beyond nice and will continue to be as long as my image and me are left alone. Call my bluff if you must. Thank you have a day.”
According to court documents, Geno allegedly threatened to kill Mama June during their altercation, so concerns over him being frightening to the children around him would seem justified.
Numerous followers asked in the comments whether or not Geno and Mama June were still together, and Mama June responded to a few of those questions with quick assurances that they are still together. “Yes we r very much together n very happily in love n working through this as a family n no one is going to break us down,” she wrote. When the questions continued, Mama June shared this lengthy all-caps statement iterating that she and Geno are still together and “very much in love:”
OH K SINCE EVERYONE KEEPS ASKING YES ME N GENO R TOGETHER HAPPILY N VERY MUCH IN LOVE N WE R DEALING WITH THIS SITUATION AS A FAMILY N YES WE WILL GO PUBLIC WITH YOUR STORY N MAYBE IT WILL HELP SOMEONE N NO ONE N NO THING IS GOING TO BREAK US DOWN OR BREAK US UP WE R A STRONG COUPLE N BEEN THROUGH ALOT IN THE 3 YRS WE HAVE BEEN TOGETHER N ALWAYS CAME OUT OF IT N FACED ANYTHING N EVERYTHING TOGETHER N HAVE GROWN STRONGER TOGETHER SO THERE IS YOUR ANSWER WE WILL B TOGETHER FOR A LONG TIME TO COME THATS WHAT U DO WHEN U LOVE SOMEONE UNCONDITIONALLY WE R EACH OTHERS BEST FRIENDS N WE HAVE A STRONG SMALL CIRCLE BUT WE APPRECIATE ALL THE SUPPORT DURING EVERYTHING WE HAVE EVER GONE THROUGH
After their arrest, police reportedly instructed the couple to stay away from each other, so its unclear how they are able to legally remain in close proximity.
Getting back to Geno, he did little to quell people’s concerns over him seeming to be a threatening individual with a series of very heated, and very profane, responses to comments. Here are some examples:
COMMENT: uh … he Geno was arrested for possession of CRACK COCAINE, NEEDLES, & DRUG PARAPHERNALIA! So was June. That’s how folks can call him a crack head! Duh. If it walks like a duck and talks like a duck it’s a duck!
GENO: if it sucks like a wh*re and smells like a wh*re must be your mom
COMMENT: You’re the one who tarnished your image when you got arrested with drugs and drug paraphernalia plus the domestic violence charge. Instead of posting that insane looking picture you should be getting ready to go to a rehab. Who knows? It might help you in court and it might help save the show!!!
GENO: I didn’t tarnish my image I never once said I don’t do Coke or please don’t say that about me but if somebody speaking about me being ill-mannered or negative toward a child then I have an issue so f**k off d*ck head suck my f**king nuts
COMMENT: Getting his 15 mins of fame
GENO: check into retroabortion lost sewer seed
COMMENTER A: He must’ve passed out he got quiet lol
GENO: nope your mom’s suckin my taint
COMMENTER B: @CommenterA damn you’re all over his post what the hell? You keep commenting on everything… obsessed much????
COMMENTER A: @CommenterB your business why?
COMMENTER B: @CommenterA because I made it my business. You’re supposed to be all Christian but judging the hell out of somebody. Hmmmmmm…..
COMMENTER A: @CommenterB I could care less if YOU MADE IT YOUR BUSINESS LOL
COMMENTER B: @CommenterA awwww is your hypocritical ass typing in caps supposed to mean something? Go read your Bible cause you need to relearn some sh*t all these hateful things and judging you’re doing cannot be good for your “supposed” Christian soul. Lol smh
GENO: @CommenterB suck my hung like jesus d*ck
COMMENTER B: @doakgeno hey jack*ss I was defending you
COMMENT: Think he’s gone folks. This will all get handled down the road. Shame he admitted to using drugs on this site. People should hope the kid is getting some support from good folks right now. It’s a lot to deal with no matter who you are. I hope Geno takes a look at his early remarks and smacks himself.
GENO: I don’t have anything to hide and I’m not embarrassed about any mistakes weird things that have happened in my life. That’s called honesty, f**k stick, and no I’m not going to read comments and smack myself because once again I’m honest
COMMENT: are you really 42? The things you say are more like what a 12 year old would say
DOAK: nope I sure am not 42, I’m 43. I can’t believe you’re the winning sperm

#HereComesHoneyBooBoo & #FromNotToHot's Mama June snarls for her latest mug shot photo. Visit Starcasm.net (site link in bio) to get a full recap of the Macon County Sheriff's press conference regarding her & boyfriend Geno Doak's arrests last week for crack possession & domestic violence! (The Sheriff admits he didn't know who Mama June was, but he did seem impressed when one of the many calls his department received was from @wendyshow. We've all got our guilty pleasures y'all! ?)
COMMENT: You are a homeless drugaddict. Then you find June, move in with her OR “dude” like you call her. Then you introduce drugs to her and going to destroy her and her family and their future. Prison [or] rehab is next.
GENO: should I believe you ? Ive heard sl*ts know a lot about people they don’t know.
In addition to Mama June and Geno breaking their silence about the aftermath of their arrests, WE tv has also issued a statement in which they completely dodged the question of whether or not From Not To Hot is in jeopardy of being canceled:
We share our viewers’ concerns for June Shannon and her entire family. We are monitoring events as they occur and are focused, as always, on the entire family’s well-being.
Fans of Mama June will recall that TLC canceled their popular series Here Comes Honey Boo Boo after it was revealed that Mama June was reportedly dating Mark McDaniel, the man convicted of molesting her daughter Anna when she was eight years old.
As for now, From Not To Hot is still airing new episodes on Friday nights at 9/8 on WE tv.
