Honey Boo Boo’s Nugget Joins the Family

Honey Boo Boo would like to introduce her new pet chicken, Nugget.

According to Alana ‘Honey Boo Boo” Thompson’s official Facebook page, Nugget the Chicken just joined the family in time to film new episodes of TLC’s Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.

Nugget seemed to have grabbed the attention of more than just fans who were aware of Honey Boo Boo’s long-lasting love of chicken nuggets.

In a letter to the seven-year-old star, PETA, an animal rights’ organization suggested she name her chicken “not a nugget” so “fans know that they should be nice to chickens by not eating them.” In addition to asking her to change the name, the organization sent Honey Boo Boo vegan nuggets and a T-shirt of a chicken saying, “I am not a nugget.”

TLC had no comments. Can you blame them?
