JoJo Siwa is speaking out on the controversy surrounding the Nickelodeon board game “JoJo’s Juice.” The YouTube superstar, went straight to Instagram and Tiktok to talk about the game’s “inappropriate content.”
“Over the weekend, 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,” the singer said. “Now 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.”
