JoJo Siwa Faces Backlash for Claims About Other ‘Dance Moms’ Alumni Skipping Reunion

JoJo Siwa

In recent years, Dance Moms has gained even more popularity than when it aired from 2011 to 2019 on Lifetime. A reunion only makes sense, considering the drama on the reality series (mostly stemming from dance teacher and choreographer Abby Lee Miller). However, a comment made by JoJo Siwa has stirred up drama of its own.

An official trailer for Dance Moms: The Reunion dropped on March 6. In it, viewers enjoyed a sneak peek at the former cast members all gathering together in the same room for the first time in 10 years. Chloe Lukasiak, Brooke Hyland, Paige Hyland, Kendall Vertes, Kalani Hilliker and their moms are all featured in the reunion, in addition to Siwa.

Noticeably absent, however, were sisters Maddie Ziegler and Mackenzie Ziegler and Nia Sioux.

"Them not being there is kind of like, 'Let me erase my past, pretend it never happened, shove it down the drain,'" Siwa said at one point in the trailer. "When it's like, that's why you are who you are."

This evidently struck a nerve with fans—and not in a good way.

On TikTok, one user shared a snippet of the trailer alongside a pointed message in all caps: "NO ONE ASKED FOR THIS OPINION. LEAVE THEM ALONE JOJO. YOU WERE ONLY ON THERE FOR ONE SEASON."

Plenty of folks chimed in with their reactions, too, with one TikTok user writing, "Jojo always has so much to say about people who were on the show for exponentially longer than her."

Another person commented, "Like God forbid nia, maddie,& kenzie wanna protect their peace 😭."

Yet another person lamented, "JOJO. HAVE YOU LEARNED NOTHING," while another declared, "Jojo slowly transforming into Abby."

Meanwhile, someone else commented, "She's so aggravating just bc her experience was different doesn't give her the right to speak on the others who WERE verbally abused."

We have a feeling there is plenty more drama to come.

The two-hour special Dance Moms: The Reunion airs on Wednesday, May 1, at 8 p.m. ET on Lifetime.
