Tony Lindsey’s arrest last year is going to coast him more than a trip to jail.

The “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” co-star has reportedly been banned from the show, much of it due to the incident, according to TMZ. The report states that Tony, who is dubbed the “cousin” of “Honey Boo Boo”‘s titular star Alana Thompson will no longer be welcomed on the reality series, not by producers or TLC, but by family matriarch Mama June herself.

Tony was arrested in November for reckless behavior after being caught scaring people while wearing a gorilla suit. As a result, June tells TMZ that she is no longer comfortable with having Tony take part in the series.

“We love him as a friend … but that was a crazy story,” she said, before adding that although everyone calls him a cousin, he isn’t actually related to the clan. “Crazy Tony’s just a family friend … who is just crazy.”

Tony, for his part, isn’t happy with the news.

“TV’s changed that family,” he told TMZ.
