YouTuber and Nickelodeon star adopted the old adage of "a picture is worth a thousand words" and let the photo she posted do all the talking.

Siwa, who has more than 12 million subscribers on YouTube, sparked speculation that she was coming out as gay when she shared a video of herself lip-syncing to "Born This Way" by Lady Gaga on TikTok on Thursday (21 January). Fans theorized Siwa was sending a message, as she specifically played the lines, "No matter gay, straight, or bi, lesbian, transgender life/I'm on the right track, baby I was born to survive".

Although, as many rightly pointed out, you shouldn't assume people's sexuality because of a song they mime or a hair accessory that they wear.

Well, it would seem as if she's decided that now is the time. She shared similar sentiments on Twitter.

And with that, Siwa came out to the world and support has poured in from many celebrities for her decision to come out. It is tough, after all.

Rapper Lil Nas replied to the tweet by saying swag spelt backwards is gay.

"You're absolutely glowing and I'm so proud of the woman you are becoming! love yoooou!"

Another simply said: "We will always support you".

JoJo started her career as a young child on the show Dance Moms before branching out into a careers as a YouTuber, musician, and children's entertainer.

JoJo Siwa, the 17-year-old singer, dancer, actor and YouTube personality, has come out as gay, after alluding to it on social media over the past couple days. The video has more than 4.5 million likes and 25 million views, by far Siwa's most popular video on TikTok. She was the youngest contestant ever on the U.S. version of singing competition The Masked Singer, where she was the T-Rex.
