SYTYCD: JoJo Siwa pops off at backlash from viewers

JoJo Siwa very bluntly took to Twitter yesterday to put her critics in their place regarding her qualifications as a judge on So You Think You Can Dance. She noted she’s been dancing since she was a year old. So, she has 18 years of “dance knowledge” under her belt. She pointed out that she’s participated in four major dance television shows and she’s been in 16 different dance music videos. Moreover, she’s also assisted in hiring over 1,000 dancers.

JoJo Siwa went on to suspect the reason she’s receiving so much backlash from viewers of the show is that some people just don’t like her. She noted it was “okay” for people not to like her. She, however, thought it was silly for people to question her knowledge of dancing.

She penned: “If you don’t like me that’s okay… but if you think I don’t know about dance ya just sound silly.”

See her original tweet clapping back at the criticism she’s been receiving down below:

She’s been the center of controversy

Despite it being the year 2022, JoJo Siwa spun a fair amount of controversy when she came out of the closet. Being a Disney Channel icon, there were a lot of conservative parents who took issue with her sexuality and barred their children from continuing to enjoy JoJo Siwa merch.

Chances are pretty good JoJo Siwa isn’t going to go anywhere as a judge on the show simply because some viewers have an issue with her. After all, as TvShowsAce reported fans’ opinions had nothing to do with Matthew Morrison exiting the show. Turns out, he was busted for having an inappropriate relationship with one of the competitors on the show.

He said in a statement: “After filming the audition rounds for the show and completing the selection of the 12 finalists, I did not follow competition production protocols, preventing me from being able to judge the competition fairly.”

Are you surprised so many fans have an issue with JoJo Siwa being a judge of So You Think You Can Dance? Moreover, what do you think of her clap back at her critics?

  1. I was angry and saddened by the removal of the original judges for sytycd. The “new” judges are far less experienced to analyze and judge the variety of dance styles shown. The producers of the show will lose many of their devoted followers if such a pattern continues. Dance competitions like “World of Dance” didn’t get signed for this season which is an injustice. Their judges were exceptional. The show itself a far cry from sytycd. It was professional in every sense of the word. I have been a teacher/choreographer for over 50 years. I’ve judged countless competitions. Today’s “young” judges need to hone their skills before attempting to judge students who are near their age.
