Playing Mama June Accused by Fans of Wearing a Fat Suit to Exaggerate Weight Loss on Reality Show

Mama June Shannon's reality show is only one episode in, and already some viewers are starting to speculate about the 37-year-old reality star's appearance.

After the premiere of WE tv's Mama June: From Not to Hot on Friday night, several fans took to social media to call out "before" scenes of Mama June, questioning whether she was wearing a fat suit and/or prosthetic makeup.

"If she isn't in a prosthetic fat suit, then why can't she turn her head? She is turning her whole body," one Twitter user commented.

"It's obviously obvious that Mama June is wearing a fat face and suit for this show's confessional," another comment read.

One viewer even accused the show of filming some of the confessionals after Mama June had reached her goal weight. "You can tell some 'before' surgery scenes were filmed after ... fake neck and much blonder hair," they noted.

Mama June: From Not to Hot documents the reality star's so-called "revenge diet" that led to her dramatic physical transformation after her 2015 split from Mike "Sugar Bear" Thompson.

In an exclusive interview with ET, Mama June's trainer, Kenya Crooks, along with her daughters, 17-year-old Lauryn "Pumpkin" Thompson and 11-year-old Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson, revealed that the reality star is in hiding until the show's big reveal, and has to be in disguise if she goes out in public.

"Even if she does go out, she has to be like suited up, big clothes on," Pumpkin disclosed. "I mean, she looks huge when she goes out."
