Honey Boo Boo and TLC Stars Go Purple for #SpiritDay

TLC stars, including Honey Boo Boo and her family, wore their best purple today to take a stand against bullying and send a message of support to LGBT youth on #SpiritDay

On the official Honey Boo Boo Facebook page, Alana posted a Spirit Day message, saying "u can't change the way u r or who u fell in love with...and we support uncle poodle and all the other poodles in the world too."

TLC often features LGBT people on its reality series, including hosts and consultants on What Not to Wear, and the Say Yes to the Dress franchise and many times has featured same-sex couples on its bridal shows.  Seeing so many TLC celebrities wear purple on #SpiritDay only reinforces the networks’ support of the LGBT community.

Check out TLC Celebrities who have tweeted about Spirit Day, including Bill and Jen, known as “The Little Couple;” Monte Durham of Say Yes to the Dress Atlanta who wrote a blog post about Spirit Day; Theresa Caputo of Long Island Medium; Katherine and Sophie from DC Cupcakes; Robyn Sullivan Brown and Janelle Brown of Sister Wives; Buddy Valastro of Cake Boss who ordered a purple jacket specially made for the occasion; and Clinton Kelly from What Not to Wear.

Take a look at the other celebrities who are participating including Glee's Dianna Agron, Joel McHale, Wendy Williams and Shaquille O'Neal! They will all be in purple along with landmarks including Times Square and the New York Stock Exchange!
