Controversies

  • In 2016, after she introduced her line of bows with Claire’s, her bows gained widespread popularity among elementary school pupils in the United Kingdom. Teachers observed that children who could not afford the bows (which retail for between £8 ($10.40) and £12 ($15.50) each) were bullied by their friends who could afford them. As a result, her bows were prohibited from numerous schools. Her bows were also prohibited because they were a distraction to students, impaired their concentration, and contradicted the dress code standards of the institutions.
  • In June 2019, Siwa encountered difficulties with her cosmetics brand after the FDA issued a warning regarding asbestos levels in her cosmetics kit. Claire canceled the product in response to the criticism, and Siwa produced a now-deleted YouTube video to address the incident.

In the video, she stated, Recent information has brought to my light a concern with one of my products sold in Claire’s stores. I simply want everyone to know that safety is mine and Nickelodeon’s first priority in everything, in every product, and in every aspect of our business.”

  • She tweeted a snapshot of her BMW sports car with entire glitter paint, shooting stars, and JoJo’s face on the hood in December 2019; she had received it as a Christmas gift. Three times Justin Bieber commented “Burn It” on her post. Her mother soon advised Justin Bieber to destroy his belongings. Following this, Justin experienced a massive reaction. Later, Justin apologized on his Twitter account.

Saying, “I have nothing against you; I didn’t like the automobile or the colors.” I sincerely hope you did not perceive it as nasty or spiteful.”

  • In the music video for her single “Nonstop,” released in June 2020, she appears as a ringmaster and her backing dancers are dressed as animals and circus performers. One dancer was costumed as a monkey and had her face painted black. In the entertainment world, blackface is considered offensive, therefore this garnered significant criticism.

She said when discussing it, We are discussing children dressed as circus animals! In my video, no one is wearing blackface. That’s terrible that anyone would ever consider it. Children act the part while wearing animal costumes and having their faces painted to resemble animals. Everything was present, including zebras, tigers, dogs, clowns, and mermaids. I’ve already addressed Black Lives Matter problems on social media. Black Lives Matter, now, tomorrow, yesterday, and forever, I will repeat for those in the back. Here, I am on the correct side of history. Stop making this about something that it is not.”

Property

In December of 2019, JoJo acquired a $3.4 million mansion in the affluent Los Angeles neighborhood of Tarzana, located deep within the San Fernando Valley’s suburbs. There, she resides with her family.
