Jojo Siwa recently addressed the backlash she has received for expressing her dislike of the word ‘lesbian’.

Siwa said, “I don’t like the word itself. It’s just like a lot. But I mean, at the end of the day, that’s what I am. … It’s like the word moist. It’s just like … ugh!”

After catching heat over what she said during a recent interview, she said, “I’ve been going through my comments and I just want to make something super clear: I never said that lesbian was a dirty word and I never, ever would say it was a dirty word because it is not. It is not a bad word. It is not a slur and it is especially not a word that I am ashamed of saying or ashamed of identifying as by any means.”

She added, “I don’t hate the word ‘lesbian,’ I just – whenever someone talks to me about my sexuality, I just say that I’m gay. It’s not the word that flows off the tongue for me if that makes sense.”

Do you think that celebrities or people, in general, overshare their personal thoughts and opinions too much online?
