  • Candace Owens shared a six-minute video suggesting JoJo lied to Siwa about being a lesbian.

  • Siwa, known for her projects with Nickelodeon, replied to Owens on Twitter on Tuesday.

  • Siwa officially came out as queer to fans in January 2021.

JoJo Siwa hit back at conservative commentator Candace Owens for claiming she’s lying about being a lesbian because she’s “desperate for attention.”

On April 4th, Owens uploaded an almost six minute clip from her podcast to Twitter and discussed her views on Siwa. In the video, Owens said the 19-year-old star used her sexuality to gain attention, saying, “It’s a great way to find a community of victims.”

“By the way, I don’t think JoJo Siwa is a lesbian. I want to be very clear about that. I think she’s desperate for attention,” Owens once said.

Just hours after Owens shared the video, Siwa responded with a short tweet.

“I haven’t watched the video yet… But if it has anything to do with your caption, respectfully back off,” Siwa wrote.

Representatives for Siwa and Owens did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.

Siwa, known for her TV show and projects with Nickelodeon, first opened up to fans about her sexuality with two TikTok videos in January 2021 and later posted a photo of her captioning a “Best. Gay. Cousin. Ever” t-shirt on twitter. She shared more details on Instagram Live later that month, saying she’s been a part of the LGBTQ community her entire life.

“But I always believed that my person would just be my person,” Siwa said. “If that person happened to be a boy, great! And if that person happened to be a girl, great! I think I’m just very happy. I think in life you know when you meet their person, I really do.”

In March 2023, Siwa narrated People The She realized she was gay while exploring Disney World with a friend she had a crush on.

“I have a lot of really hard memories here, but I grew a lot at Disney. I fell in love with Disney World for the first time,” Siwa told the outlet. “I realized I was gay at Disney World. I’ve gone through periods of heartbreak at Disney World. There was a lot in my personal life that Disney World really credited with.”
