JoJo Siwa Faces Backlash For Joking About Pregnancy

JoJo Siwa's pregnancy jokes did not sit well with some fans, who criticized the star for insensitivity towards those dealing with infertility.

JoJo Siwa, the former “Dance Moms” star, has found herself in hot water after apparently joking about being pregnant on social media. Despite previously denying the rumors, Siwa posted a series of Snapchat photos and videos that led some fans to believe she was expecting. In one video, she and a friend touch her belly and joke about the friend being the father of her baby.

The posts drew criticism from some fans, who found Siwa’s behavior insensitive towards those struggling with infertility and pregnancy loss. One person called it “extremely weird and inappropriate” for Siwa to be joking about pregnancy, while another said it was “disrespectful and insensitive.”

In response to the backlash, Siwa addressed the rumors again on Snapchat, explaining her thoughts on how she might have children in the future. “Biologically to have kids you need a male and a female, and kids watch this, so I’m not going to talk about how babies are made,” she said. “There will never be that male significant other in my life.”

Siwa’s pregnancy jokes have sparked a larger conversation about the impact of celebrities’ behavior on their young fans. While some may view her behavior as harmless fun, others argue that it can be hurtful and insensitive to those struggling with infertility and pregnancy loss. As the debate rages on, it remains to be seen whether Siwa will take steps to address the controversy and repair any damage done.
