JoJo finally spoke up on the situation after backlash. On June 15, JoJo posted a video to her youtube channel on this situation. The video was titled “my makeup” and JoJo was seen in the similar youtuber apology attire, hoodie and minimal makeup. The mood soon changed when JoJo lost the serious look with “I was going to start this video all serious and dramatic, but that's not who I am, that's not what this video is about.”. But she goes back to be a little serious to tell her fans that her and Nickelodeon's number one priority is the fans’ safety.
JoJo explained that she trusted people to make the products perfect and now they’re trying very hard to recall the products and get them off the shelf. YouTuber Jaclyn Hill’s Line of ‘Rotten’ Lipsticks Contains Fungus and Hair! Fans Enraged
JoJo ended the small video with “I hope you understand, and thank you for understanding, because it is serious to me, and it means a lot to me because it is my name, and it is my brand, and it is my face, quite literally.” JoJo Siwa is lucky her drama aligned with the Jaclyn Hill mould lipsticks.
