“Proud of you,” one fan told her.
“YES YES YES YES YES!!,” another posted.
While one told her: my “5 year old just run into my work study screaming, “MOMMY MOMMY JOJO IS GAY I COULDN’T BE HAPPIER TO KNOW MY IDOL JUST CAME OUT!” What?? I’m literally crying tears of joy my little girl is so accepting and tolerating of different people”
