If ever there was a time for someone to intervene and help this family, that time is definitely now. Honey Boo Boo is pretending to snort cocaine in a new video shared on social media that's disturbing for a number of reasons. Aside from the reality star being 13, her mom, Mama June, is dealing with drug addiction of her own that makes this no joking matter.

  • TMZ reshared a snippet of Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson's Instagram Live video where she pretends to do a line of cocaine.

    Honey Boo Boo apparently was taking fan questions before getting upset. "Tell me what's [expletive] next right now!" she yells at her sister, Lauryn "Pumpkin" Shannon, who's off camera, before pretending to snort cocaine.

    "Alana quit [expletive] doing ... dont' even [expletive] mimic that on [expletive] live!!" Pumpkin is heard yelling at her sister.

  • Her video comes months after police addressed Mama June and her boyfriend on drug charges.

    Back in March, authorities responded to a domestic incident leading to Mama June's arrest on charges of "felony possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia," and boyfriend Geno Doak on charges of "felony possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia, in addition to domestic violence/harassment."

  • The family tried to stage an intervention after her arrest, with Honey Boo Boo pleading with her mother to change.

    Honey Boo Boo moved out of Mama June's house, revealing she's scared to move back home because of Geno and won't do so until he's gone. She's been living with her sister Pumpkin, who's being praised for stepping in during such a difficult time.
