The young YouTube star, JoJo Siwa, recently addressed the criticism over the controversial Nickelodeon board game "JoJo's Juice."
The 17-year-old, who gained a young fanbase, took to Instagram and TikTok on the 4th of January to shed some light on how the children's game ended up with "inappropriate" content for the targeted six-and-up audience.
The Boomerang singer began with, "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. 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."
JoJo the further continued to explain that "Now when I first saw this I was really, really, really upset about how gross these questions were and so I brought it to Nickelodeon's attention immediately. And since then they have been working to get this game to stop being made and also pulled from all shelves wherever it's being sold." (Sic)
The internet sensation added that she "never, ever, ever would have approved or agreed" to a game which reportedly included questions about being arrested and nudity.
Some of the questions in the multi-player game were "Who in this room would you most like to date" and "Have you ever stolen from a store?"
JoJo did, however, end her video on a positive note as she added that; "I love you all so much. Thank you for bringing this to my attention so that way I can put a stop to it and get it fixed immediately."
Following the backlash on the inappropriate questions, Nickelodeon and JoJo's Juice manufacturer, Spin Master, addressed the game in a recently released statement. The statement read; "We respect and value the relationship JoJo Siwa has with her fans and take the concerns raised regarding the game 'JoJo's Juice' very seriously. This game is no longer being manufactured and we have requested that retailers pull any remaining product from their shelves."
