Hey folks, this is Lord HushHush and today we are going to talk about a sensitive topic - bullying and how to deal with it.
On "Dance Moms," JoJo Siwa may have had to deal with Abby Lee Miller's sharp tongue, but the YouTube and Nickelodeon star known for her bubbly personality and over-the-top bows has also had to deal with online bullying. Since JoJo is home-schooled, she hasn't had to deal with bullies in person like most girls her age, but she has experienced a lot of online bullying in the form of incredibly nasty comments and personal attacks. Online, people can hide behind their screens, and JoJo has been called everything from fat to ugly to a brat. This type of online bullying is unfortunately very common among girls her age even without the celebrity status.
Thankfully, JoJo is able to deal with the online bullying she experiences by being true to herself. She maintains a positive attitude and refuses to let the haters get her down. JoJo's song "Boomerang" describes how she deals with the bullying. She sings, "I don't really care 'bout what they say. Ima come back like a boomerang." The video also shows how she and her friends would deal with bullies and haters at school. At first, the bullies are stuck behind their phones and making mean comments, while JoJo and her friends are dancing, laughing, and just being themselves. JoJo and her friends eventually even become friends with the mean girls and bullies when, during a dance-off, JoJo continues to be herself winning over the head mean girl. The video ends with all of the kids dancing together and everyone having an amazing time.
It's clear that JoJo deals with bullying by focusing on the positive rather than the negative. Her millions of fans love this about her. Her fans, also known as Siwanators, not only look to JoJo for fashionable inspiration for their hair bows, but also for encouragement and advice. In addition to writing the song "Boomerang," JoJo has also written a book called "JoJo’s Guide to the Sweet Life: #PeaceOutHaterz." In the book, JoJo describes many aspects of her life, but another big part of the book is how she deals with bullying and haters. Putting her thoughts down in book form was super exciting for her and sharing her advice on how to stay upbeat and ignore the haters is another way that JoJo is able to deal with the bullying she personally experiences.
Bullying is definitely something that most 14-year-old girls experience in one form or another. JoJo's celebrity status definitely makes it so that the haters feel like they are entitled to their opinions about her no matter how hurtful or harmful. Thankfully, JoJo is able to brush off the haters and maintain her positive outlook on life. She's definitely a great role model for all the young girls out there who may be bullied.
