  • JoJo Siwa received backlash for a her board game, JoJo's Juice, due to some inappropriate questions that it asks of its players—six-year-old children and up.

  • JoJo addressed the controversy and said that she was freaked out when she discovered the questions that were placed in the game.

Never thought I'd be typing out these words, but: JoJo Siwa is currently in hot water over her most recent board game, JoJo's Juice, because of some rather....questionable content for its age six and up audience. According to Insider and Page Six, the game asked players inappropriate questions such as "Have you ever walked in on someone naked or had someone walk in on you?" and "Have you ever gone outside without underwear (a bathing suit doesn’t count)?" which naturally upset a bunch of parents who purchased the game for their young children.

Following the backlash, JoJo hopped on Instagram to deliver a message to her fans about the matter and said:

"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. 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.

When I first saw this, I was really, really, really upset at 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 stop being made and pulled from all shelves wherever it’s being sold. I hope you all know that I would never, ever, ever approve or agree to be associated with this game if I would have seen these cards before they started selling it."

The companies in charge of producing the game, Nickelodeon and Spin Master, issued their own statement about the matter to Insider about the board game's content and confirmed that they will halt further production.

"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," the statement said. "This game is no longer being manufactured and we have requested that retailers pull any remaining product from their shelves."
