On Friday, she shared a more convincing message about coming out on Twitter. She tweeted a picture of herself dressed in a T-shirt that wrote — best gay cousin ever. Siwa mentioned that her cousin got it for her for being bold and confident about her sexuality. Old Town Road hit-maker, Lil Nas X also responded to her tweet and praised her. Fans poured positive reactions for her in Twitter later that day.
But, she doesn’t feel comfortable calling herself yet.
Also, there will always be the sad side of the story. After Siwa came out publicly, some fans posted hateful comments about her. The reports also claimed that the internet is harassing her. A user, probably a mother, commented on one of Siwa’s Instagram posts that she wouldn’t allow her daughter to watch her again. However, Jojo seemed unbothered with the comment as she replied writing, Okay!
There were several other hateful comments all over the internet. Some of the wicked fans have even harassed and made troll online of the young actor and dancer. But, Boomerang singer is gracefully dealing her haters and is confident on how she wants to live. However, when fans asked how she labels her sexuality, she responded that she doesn’t know the answer.
