Mama June apparently feels that Crazy Tony is too crazy for the bizarre television show.

People were so furious about this Pepsi ad that Pepsi pulled it after just one day. Watch it here and decide if it's offensive:

Crazy Tony was reportedly arrested in November (his mugshot is pictured). He was involved with a group of drunken pranksters, who allegedly scared people driving on a freeway, while wearing a giant gorilla suit.

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

TMZ contacted Crazy Tony, who admitted that he wasn't happy about the ban and also claimed: "TV has changed that family."

Mama June said that even though they call him a "cousin" on the TV show, Crazy Tony isn't actually related to the family: "Crazy Tony's just a family friend ... who is just crazy."

However, the rest of the family will still be around, yelling at each other and engaging in bizarre antics. So far the new season has followed the family in their Halloween and Thanksgiving celebrations.
