JoJo Siwa board game pulled after accusations of 'inappropriate' material

JoJo Siwa has addressed the controversy over a game in her Nickelodeon merchandise line that has been dubbed “inappropriate”. Parents complained about the subject matter in truth or dare-esque game JoJo’s Juice. The game included prompts like “have you ever walked in on someone naked?” and have you “learned the art of twerking?”. The game is supposed to be appropriate for children ages 6 and up, according to the label on the outside of the box. In her response to the game, Siwa said in a TikTok that she wasn’t aware of the content of the game. “I had no idea of the types of questions that were on these playing cards … I was really, really, really upset at how gross these questions were”. She said she quickly took action to ask Nickelodeon to stop the game from being made, and the company has pulled it from shelves. Siwa’s swift response to the backlash left commenters impressed. “The only person I know that is mature enough to handle any situation thrown at her in a respectful manner. Truly amazing,” one user wrote
