Alana Thomspon, also known as Honey Boo Boo, stole hearts throughout the first season of "DWTS: Juniors."


Thompson, who was paired with Tristan Ianiero, was unfortunately voted off during the recent round, despite being a crowd favorite.

Thompson and Ianiero scored 21/30, which was not enough to send them through the next round, much to their fans' dismay.


The 12-year-old reality star burst into tears and got a hug from Tristan when it was announced that they were eliminated.


The audience was genuinely surprised when the pre-teen was sent home, with a user known only as C Staley laying the blame at their mentor. She said:

"I don't think Artem knows how to choreograph for Honey Boo Boo, he's not even challenging her. I've seen other full figured people on the show be given routines that really showcase their ability. Honey Boo Boo is basically just walking around the stage every week."


Another netizen said Thompson was one of her favorites, while Isaac Bahney added that she wouldn't have sent home if viewers could call in and vote.

Several users also sent messages of support to Thompson, saying she gave a strong performance throughout the first season and ought to be proud.


During her time on the show, Thompson also danced the Foxtrox to "Something There" from "Beauty and the Beast."

The fairy tale themed-dance also had fans praising her on social media and viewers genuinely expected her to go far in the show.


Honey Boo Boo made headlines back in August when it was revealed that she could make up to $130,000 if she makes it to the season finale.

She rose to fame with her reality show "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" and had been a household name since the age of 5.
