JoJo Siwa calmly reacted to a parent who told her that she won’t let her daughter watch her again after she came out as a member of the LGBTQ+ community.
After the pop star, 17, was very open and honest about her sexuality on Instagram, a parent wrote in the comments: ‘My daughter will never watch you again.’
JoJo simply replied: ‘Okay!’
JoJo announced to her 31.6 million TikTok followers and her 10.3 million Instagram followers that she is romantically interested in girls as well as boys.
First, she went on TikTok and danced to Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way,” widely viewed as an LGBTQ anthem. Then on Friday she posted a photo on Twitter with the caption “My cousin gave me a new shirt.” The shirt says “Best. Gay. Cousin. Ever.” Finally, in an Instagram Live on Saturday, Siwa affirmed that she is part of the LGBTQ community, thanked fans for their support and said she was the happiest she had ever been.
She declined to put a specific label on her sexual orientation, but in what appeared to be a response to a fan’s question, she elaborated.
“I always believed that my person was just going to be my person,” she said. “If that person happened to be a boy — great! If that person happened to be a girl — great!”
