Since rising to fame, JoJo Siwa has made a major name for herself in the entertainment world. Just like other celebs, the songstress is no stranger to controversy!
Over the years, the songstress has spoken out and addressed various criticisms from fans and even ignited feuds with some former Dance Moms stars. In fact, in January 2021, the “Boomerang” singer responded to backlash from her millions of followers after a TikTok user pointed out that her daughter’s JoJo’s Juice board game featured what she deemed “inappropriate” content for young girls.
“It has been brought to my attention by my fans and followers on TikTok that my name and my image have been used to promote this board game that has some really inappropriate content,” JoJo said in her TikTok response video. “When companies make these games, they don’t run every aspect by me. So I had no idea of the types of questions that were on these playing cards.”
According to the original viral video, the playing cards had questions such as: “Have you ever walked in on someone naked or had someone walk in on you?” and “Have you ever taken money from someone’s purse or wallet without asking?” In a statement to Insider, both Nickelodeon and the game’s manufacturing company said they took these concerns “seriously,” immediately stopped the game from being made and urged retailers to remove any remaining copies from shelves.
JoJo continued her statement saying, “When I first saw this, I was really, really, really upset at how gross these questions were and so I brought it to Nickelodeon’s attention immediately. … I hope you all know that I would never, ever, ever approve or agree to be associated with this game if I would have seen these cards before they started selling it.”
More than a year later, JoJo was in the midst of controversy once again in July 2022 after she referred to Full House star Candace Cameron Bure as the “the rudest celebrity I’ve ever met” in a TikTok video. Per an Instagram video from Candace, the two had a phone conversation after the video went viral and spoke about any issues between them. As it turned out, JoJo met Candace at the Fuller House premiere when she was young and the actress snubbed her when it came time to take a photo.
“I was 11, and I was a big, big fan, and I wanted to take a picture with her, and it wasn’t a good time for her,” JoJo toldamid the feud. “I will say because I had a bad experience, that doesn’t mean that she is an awful human.”
