YouTube has long progressed from a mere video sharing platform to a place for a severe money-making business. Since Forbes published the world’s richest YouTuber in 2015, people have started making their YouTube careers.
However, some remained consistent, whereas some took a leave. Jojo Siwa happens to be one of the American YouTube celebrities who first came into the limelight as the youngest contestant in ‘Abby’s Ultimate Dance Competition and gained popularity in the fifth-sixth season ‘Dance Moms.’
Recently, Jojo shared a piece of news on her social media, which caught entire populations’ attention. On her posted picture, she wore a t-shirt with the words ‘Best. Gay. Cousin. Ever.’
After her post, her fans quickly rallied behind her, and her post received more than 1.2 million times like and received kind words.
Jojo also went live on Instagram and engaged with her fans personally. One of her fans asked her what label she was to, to which she responded, saying she was not ready to put a label on her sexuality just yet.
"I have thought about this, and the reason I'm not going to say this answer is because I don't really know this answer. I think humans are awesome, I think humans are really incredible people. Right now, I'm super duper happy and I want to share everything with the world, I really do, but I also want to keep things in my life private until they are ready to be public.
'Right now what matters is that you guys know that no matter who you love, that it's okay and that it's awesome and the world is there for you."
In her further video, Jojo continued explaining how happy she felt coming out.
Following her announcement, many celebrities supported her on social media.
TV presenter Ellen DeGeneres tweeted a heart emoji under Jojo's post, and singer Lil Nas X responded with a tweet saying;
"if u spell "swag" backwards, it's "gay". coincidence??"
YouTube comedian Colleen Ballinger said:
"I've known you a long time and this is the happiest I've ever seen you."
James Charles also commented on her clip, saying he is very happy for her, and another beauty influencer, NikkieTurorials, a transgender person, also commented saying,
"I'M IN TEARS ? WELCOME BABY."
