“Dance Moms” alum and YouTube star JoJo Siwa, 17, has been put on the defensive over analysis of her new Nickelodeon board game for kids, “JoJo’s Juice.”
The game contains questions like “Have you ever walked in on someone naked or had someone walk in on you?” or “Have you ever gone outside without underwear (a bathing suit doesn’t count)?” which some took to be dangerous prompts for children.
Siwa, who has recently been compelled to reject that she incorporated a child wearing blackface in a circus-themed video, tended to the contention in a video reaction, wearing one of her customary, eye-wateringly garish outfits.
“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,” Siwa began.
“When companies make these games, they don’t run every aspect by me and so I had no idea of the types of questions that were on these playing cards,” she continued. “Now, 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.”
She added, “And since then, they have been working to get this game [stopped from] being made and also pulled from all shelves wherever it’s being sold. 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.”
She wraps things up by expressing gratitude toward fans for drawing the issue out into the open, and once again, the Republic is protected.
