Former Dance Moms star JoJo Siwa wants her fans to know that no, the competition show was certainly not rigged! The 17-year-old just took to TikTok to shut down rumors once and for all that certain aspects of the series were faked, and fans are living for her response.

“I have seen so many things about Dance Moms going around on TikTok right now. About how the girls were mean, the moms were ignorant and the competitions were rigged,” she said. “I want to clear something up. The competitions were not rigged. That is something that goes around — the fans say it, even people on the show say it. The competitions were not rigged. I’ve asked the producers, I told them to tell me. I even thought they were rigged at one point, but then I realized, they are not.”

“Number two, the girls and moms are not mean and we are not ignorant. We were working, we were not doing a meet and greet there. We were working at those competitions, we were shooting a TV show!” the Nickelodeon star continued. “When we were there we were focusing and we were stressed and we were nervous. So stop saying that we were rude and ignorant because we weren’t. We were working and we were stressed. Thank you for coming to my Ted Talk.”

As fans know, the “D.R.E.A.M.” songstress’ comments come just days after she clapped back at her former costar Brooke Hyland after she seemingly shaded their old coach, Abby Lee Miller.

In a since-deleted TikTok video, Brooke revealed that she had a Facebook friend request from Abby Lee, before she turned the camera to show herself shaking her head and cringing.

“It’s one thing to just not add her back,” Jojo wrote in the comment section of shady video. “It’s another to post it…”

For those who forgot, Brooke actually left the show after her mom, Kelly Hyland, got into a physical altercation with Abby Lee. According to E! News, Abby even pressed charges against Kelly, but they were ultimately dismissed.
