'Dumb and Dumber To' Keeps Mama June Despite Sex Offender Dating Rumor

Jeff Daniels says the footage that features a cameo from the 'Here Comes Honey Boo Boo' matriarch remains intact in the 'Dumb and Dumber' sequel.

AceShowbiz - Mama June Shannon will apparently still be in "Dumb and Dumber To" despite the raging controversy surrounding reports that she's dating a convicted child molester. "No one called me about making an edit. She was in the scene at the premiere I saw, so apparently, she's still in it," Jeff Daniels says.

"Hope whatever's going on, she works it out," the actor weighs in on Shannon's dating rumor. He adds further, "She was a nice gal for that morning [when they shot the scene]. ... I couldn't care less. I shoot the movie. It's part of being an actor. You give them the movie, it goes to the edit room, and you're done."

"I don't worry about it, other people are paid to worry about those things," he continues in the interview with The Huffington Post Live. "I show up. If it's in, it's in. If it's not, it's not."

Shannon is facing backlash and finds herself under investigation by child services after she was rumored getting back together with her ex Mark McDaniel, who was sent to jail for sexually assaulting her then 8-year-old daughter Anna during their relationship years ago. Contrary to her persistent denials, she was pictured multiple times with the man.
