Honey Boo Boo was on her way to crushing the Girl Scout cookie-selling competition, but the organization has reportedly shut down her campaign. Alana Thompson, 7, star of TLC's Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, tried to help a Girl Scout friend sell boxes of cookies -- complete with a Honey Boo Boo autograph -- via her Facebook page.

An ad on Thompson's Facebook page reads, "They are $3.50 plus shipping, which varies depending on how many you order. All boxes are autographed by the family and includes an autographed family pic."

On Tuesday, Feb. 27, Honey Boo Boo shared a photo of her family's car loaded with shipping boxes. "All cookies that have been paid for have been shipped!' she wrote. "Thanks everyone for supporting Girl Scouts!"

But a rep for the Girls Scouts of the USA subsequently TMZ that online selling is not allowed, and Honey Boo Boo's online campaign has been shut down.

The Facebook sales that were already made, however, will still be counted.
