Uncle Poodle's on Grindr

Honey Boo Boo's openly gay 'Uncle Poodle' has been accused of sending naked pictures of himself via the gay social networking app Grindr in a bid to attract potential suitors.

According to TMZ an unnamed man from Georgia is now trying to sell images of the reality star posing unclothed in a shower to media outlets.

The seller said that he never met Poodle, whose real name is Lee Thompson, but during chat sessions he dropped the name of his famous niece into conversation 'almost immediately'.

Mr Thompson, who is the brother of Honey Boo Boo's father Sugar Bear and frequently stars on the hit TLC show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo. is yet to respond to requests for comment.

The pictures were supposedly sent last week.

Last month, during an interview with Atlanta gay magazine Fenuxe, Mr Thompson revealed that he is HIV-positive.

'I was adamant about getting my HIV status checked on a regular basis,' he explained. 'On March 16, 2012, I tested negative.'

Mr Thompson, who says he regularly get STD tests, then revealed that a later test came up positive.

'Then, in May of 2012 my test results came back positive. I knew it had been my boyfriend who infected me,' he said.

'I later learned he had been HIV positive and was not taking medication and had not bothered to tell me about it.

'I was advised that I should press charges and, hesitantly, I did. It was the right thing to do.'

In his brave interview, Mr Thompson reiterated how irresponsible people are who don't practise safe sex.

'They are damn fools! They are playing Russian roulette; they are playing with their lives and that of their sexual partners,' he said.

Mr Thompson has spoken out before about his sexuality, explaining what it is like to be gay in the South and shared his harrowing memories in a video for GLAAD's Spirit Day in October last year.

He said he had fallen victim to some horrible attacks at the hand of ignorant thugs, which had left him with broken ribs and a dislocated jaw.

'Being gay in the South... people don't like it,' he explained in the reel.

'Growing up as a kid, I was bullied day in and day out ... broke ribs, dislocated jaw, cars vandalized ... I've had cars vandalized to this day.' Supportive: Boo Boo is wise beyond her years and fully supports her lovely uncle

Supportive: Uncle Poodle is Honey Boo Boo's undisputed favourite family member

But Mr Thompson said he was able to get through it all because of his family and friends who stood by him.

'But I have a family that stands by me, supports me,' he said. Adding, 'I'm wearing purple today to let every youngster and every teen know it is okay to be who you are. Don't let nobody change that.'

Honey Boo Boo herself, real name Alana Thompson, supports her uncle wholeheartedly.

On the season finale of her hit TV show, Alana voiced her pro-LGBT stance, saying 'ain't nothin' wrong with bein' a little gay.'

Uncle 'Poodle,' is the seven-year-old's undisputed favourite.

Mr Thompson explained to the Georgia Voice how Alana came up with the Poodle nickname.

'We were at practice one day, getting ready for a pageant. Her coach was talking about her gay friends, and she said, ‘I love all my poodles,’' he told the Georgia Voice.

'Alana thought she was really talking about dogs. She wanted to know how many poodles she had, and what were their names. And I said, ‘No, Alana, she’s talking about gay people.’ Well, that did it. All gay people are poodles to her now, and I’m her number one poodle.

Naked pictures? Well, I never!

"accused of sending naked pictures of himself"??? via Grindr??? I'd be upset if he had NOT sent naked pics on Grindr. Is the world upside down again?

How is this a story? Are they trying to shock people who don't know what Grindr is?

I thought he was June's brother.

He is Sugar Bear's brother. June and SB aren't married. Her last name is Shannon and SB is Thompson. You can sort of see the resemblance.

Side note: Sugar Bear must be packing quite the piece to get June pregnant....

He did. But the partner's the one who gave him HIV, so he gave the partner the boot.

and millions of straight people, r14. Do you have any other self-aggrandizing stereotypes to share? Favorite foods of black people? Driving skills of Asians? Drinking styles of the Irish? Hygiene habits of Greeks?

R15 don't forget the sleeping habits of Mexicans. R14 should have been a cum stain at best.

I know he doesn't have kids, but he is important to his nieces and (if he has any)nephews . They are bound to see the nekkid pix. If you've got young kids in your life, you shouldn't be shooting naked pics of yourself on the net. Have a care as to how you would feel if there were naked photos of your parents or aunts or uncles out there when you were a kid.. The niece is famous. He shouldn't be mentioning her when sending out nudies.

Because he immediately mentioned who his niece is. Which he really shouldn't do when he's looking for dick.

"Suitors"? Do they think he's looking for gentleman to sit in the parlor with him and look at photos in the stereopticon?
