Youtuber and former Dance Moms star JoJo Siwa is apologizing

for saying she’s uncomfortable with the word “lesbian” but insisted that she never called it a “dirty word.”

The dancer and singer were blasted by critics when she admitted during an interview

that she is uncomfortable with the word “lesbian,” even though she is attracted to women.

Critics said Siwa called the label a “dirty word” and attacked her for pushing “lesbianphobia”

Now she is being forced to apologize by the outrage mob.

Siwa, 19, clarified her comments in a TikTok video denying

she said lesbian was a bad word or had bad connotations.
