JoJo Siwa is furthering her mission of calling out celebrities who have been rude to her. The teenage dancer who made headlines for revealing the “rudest celebrity” earlier this year is back at it again.
This time, Siwa called out Justin Bieber for a 2018 online interaction that went wrong.
JoJo Siwa Recalls Justin Bieber’s ‘Burn It’ Interaction
In a recent TikTok video, the “Dance Moms” alum took a jab at Bieber after he suggested she “burn” her first car in 2018. Siwa was dressed in blue biker shorts with an oversized hoodie while making funny faces to the voiceover in the background.
Across the clip were the words, “POV you’re Justin Bieber when I got my first car…” written, while the background sound was one of a woman instructing someone to burn something. “Did I say stand there and look stupid? No, I said burn it!”
Siwa didn’t hesitate to bring receipts on her TikTok, sharing a screenshot of Bieber’s “Burn it” comment underneath the post where she showed off her car. She hilariously captioned the post, “this audio was made for me.”
The post garnered over 2 million likes and several comments from fans bashing the Canadian singer. One fan wrote, “He got a DUI in his first car, so I’d say you win,” while another added, “he was in his Kanye phase.”
This comment read, “Bro had a personal beef with it lol,” while another noted, “he didn’t have the confidence to get a car with his face on it. You’re iconic.” Other fans, however, laughed at the fact that Bieber’s remark was quite the shade and praised him for being funny.
What Really Happened Between Siwa & Bieber?
The drama dates back to December 2018, when the “Kid in a Candy Store” singer got her first car as a Christmas gift. Siwa received a customized BMW convertible with her face drawn on the car and celebrated it with a post on Instagram.
The “Peaches” singer didn’t seem to be impressed by Siwa’s vehicle and wrote “burn it” twice in the comments. The rude remark even caught Siwa’s mom Jessalyn’s attention as she replied to him, “burn your own things.”
Following the interaction, Bieber took to Twitter to apologize for his comment, promising Siwa he didn’t mean it to be “malicious.” “@itsjojosiwa, I have nothing against you it was the car and the colors I didn’t like. I really hope you didn’t think I was malicious or mean spirited.”
In a 2019 interview, the “DWTS” alum cleared the air about her beef with Bieber, saying, “I don’t think there is [a feud]. My car is amazing.” She further explained that she and the “Baby” singer tried to squash the tension by scheduling a performance at her 16th birthday party. However, the gig, unfortunately, didn’t happen.
But Bieber Isn’t The ‘Rudest Celebrity’ To The ‘Dance Moms’ Star
Although Siwa and Bieber haven’t seen eye-to-eye in the past, she doesn’t consider him to be the rudest celebrity she has ever interacted with. Back in July, the 19-year-old blew up the internet when she shared a TikTok rating a series of celebrities from the “nicest” to the “rudest.”
When it got to the part of naming the rudest, Siwa showed a picture of “Full House” star Candance Cameron Bure. Days after the video surfaced, Bure expressed her thoughts about the label, saying she was “shocked.”
“Honestly, I was shocked when I saw the TikTok on Sunday and had no idea where it came from, and so I immediately tried to reach out to her through a mutual friend,” the 46-year-old explained her side in an Instagram clip.
Bure revealed that Siwa only labeled her rude because she refused to take a picture with the then-preteen during the 2016 premiere of “Fuller House.” The debacle resulted in back and forths from both parties, with Bure’s daughter slamming Siwa and asking her to “grow up” while the dancer’s mom defended her right to tell her truth.
