YouTuber JoJo Siwa has recently come out, and her announcement has caused a rift on social media... including some intense backlash from a mom of a fan.
But of course, the teen clapped back in the most iconic way...
Sadly, among the messages of support, the teen was met with criticism after coming out over the weekend...
Although it didn't stop her from responding in the best way.
Here's the full story...
Now, in the last couple of years, Siwa has risen to unprecedented levels of fame.
The seventeen-year-old now has over twelve million followers on her YouTube channel alone, with her vlogs and music videos each raking in millions of views.
But she wasn't always a YouTuber...
Siwa has an extensive list of accolades that have made her who she is today.
Her time in the spotlight began on a very popular TV show...
The star made her first appearance on Abby Lee Miller's show back in its 4th season.
The show, which has since skyrocketed the likes of Maddy Ziegler to fame, introduced us to the energetic and bubbly young girl - and she certainly made an impact.
But it wasn't long before she found her second calling in life.
While she was getting her bearings with life as a social media star, Siwa found some success in the world of music.
Her most popular tracks include "Boomerang" and "Kid in a Candy Store"...
Songs that have seen her tour the globe.
And, just to give us a little hint as to how much dollar she really makes...
Oh, and let's not forget...
The star has even released her own clothing line, which has proven to be extremely popular among her fans.
As you can see, Siwa has a very distinctive style...
The teen superstar is rarely without her colorful outfits and her trademark side ponytail and bow.
But, this week, Siwa's fans have been talking about something else entirely.
As stated earlier, Siwa made a groundbreaking announcement regarding her personal life over the weekend.
The teen star came out.
The teenager made the brave decision to reveal her true sexuality to her followers, however, her move has had a devastating consequence.
Of course, people have been sending in their messages of support since the announcement...

The star first filmed herself on TikTok miming along to the lyrics of "Born This Way" by Lady Gaga:
🏳️🌈 @itsjojosiwa is on the right track, she was born this way 💕 https://t.co/bqFMjeMmuC— Anastasia Golovashkina (@Anastasia Golovashkina)1611204370.0
"No matter gay, straight or bi, lesbian, transgender life, I'm on the right track baby I was born to survive."
She quickly followed up her video with this Twitter post...
My cousin got me a new shirt https://t.co/DuHhgRto7b— JoJo Siwa!🌈❤️🎀 (@JoJo Siwa!🌈❤️🎀)1611348455.0
Where she showed off a gift from her cousin; a t-shirt that reads, "Best Gay Cousin Ever."
Siwa then took to Instagram Live, saying: "I always believed that my person was just going to be my person. And if that person happened to be a boy, great, and if that person happened to be a girl, great!"
JoJo Siwa speaks candidly about coming out in new Instagram Live: "I have never, ever, ever been this happy before" https://t.co/cCagSiR9xO— Pop Crave (@Pop Crave)1611448727.0
"It feels really awesome and I've been happy for a little bit now... And it's just so, so, so awesome! Ya'll can just tell how happy I am."
However, despite the overwhelming support Siwa has received since coming out, not everyone has been supportive of her announcement.
In fact, one hateful mom commented on JoJo's video claiming she wouldn't let their child watch her YouTube videos anymore.
But JoJo appeared to bat the negativity off, responding in the best way...
