Adam Levine is slamming the TLC show "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo," calling it "the decay of Western civilization."

"The Voice" coach and Maroon 5 frontman is disgusted by the show, he told GQ magazine in its December issue. Levine said,
"That show is literally The. Worst. Thing. That's. Ever. Happened" and he dropped several f-bombs during the interview to emphasize his point.

The TLC show "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" averages 2.3 million viewers a week, reports E! News. Levine said to GQ, "Just because so many people watch the show doesn't mean it's good."

The show follows 7-year-old Alana Thompson, who first gained fame on the TLC show "Toddlers and Tiaras." The pint-sized beauty queen is known for guzzling what she calls "go go juice" -- a mixture of Red Bull and Mountain Dew.

Celebrities are divided on the Honey Boo Boo front. Some admit to loving the show, while others downright refuse to watch it.


Back in September, Joy Behar from "The View" had a few things to say. Behar said in a Huffington Post interview, "What is little Honey Boo Boo going to grow up to be?" Behar then said she thinks Honey Boo Boo will grow up to be "a big fat woman." (Photo: Cindy Ord/Getty Images for 54 Below)

Meanwhile, celebs like Miley Cyrus and Rosie O'Donnell love the show.

"When I hear her go, 'Holla for a dolla,' the whole house shakes," Cyrus told Handler.

However, her fiance Liam Hemsworth, refuses to watch the show, she said.

O'Donnell said, in an interview with in October, "This is really revolutionary TV in a way most people won't understand."
