The decision comes in the wake of Lindsey's November arrest, after he was involved with a group of "pranksters" who drunkenly scared people driving on a freeway while wearing a giant gorilla suit.

"We love him as a friend ... but that was a crazy story," Mama June explained. "Not trying to be mean, but we want to keep it family oriented."

And speaking of family, June clarified that even though they call him a "cousin" on Honey Boo Boo, Crazy Tony isn't actually related to the Thompson clan. "Crazy Tony's just a family friend ... who is just crazy," she said.

When reached by TMZ for comment, Lindsey admitted that he's sad about the ban and added, "TV's changed that family."
