According to Bicx, the Nickelodeon-branded game – marketed to kids ages 6 and up – includes questions like playing cards in its “Truth or Dare” category, with questions like, “Have you ever gone out without underwear?” Does not count bathing suit.) “And” Have you ever been arrested? “
After parents began voicing their concerns about the game on social media, JoJo spoke to reassure her fans that she was “really upset” about the game’s content and was working to remove it from stores.
Jojo said in the video, “Over the weekend, it was brought to my attention by my fans and followers on Ticket OK that my name and my image have been used to promote this board game which has some inappropriate content.” “When I first saw this, I was really, really, really upset at how horrible these questions were, and so I immediately brought it to Nickelodeon’s attention and then they’re working to stop this game from happening and that’s all. Shelves are being sold everywhere. “
JoJo added, “I hope you all knew that if I had ever seen this before I started selling these cards, I would never have allowed or never agreed to be associated with this game.”
A mother named Heather Watson, who bought the game for her youngest daughter for Christmas, shared photos of the controversial playing cards in a Facebook post on Friday and said the game was “in the trash.”
Nickelodeon and Spin Master, who produced the game, released a joint statement to CNN on Monday, confirming that the game was being pulled off the shelves.
“We respect and value Jojo Siva’s relationship with his fans and take very seriously the concerns raised about the game ‘Jojo’s Juice’,” the statement said. “The game is no longer being built and we request “Retailers can pull any remaining product off its shelf.”
