Colleen Ballinger a.k.a. Miranda Sings has recently faced backlash after her “uncomfortable” YouTube videos with 13-year-old JoJo Siwa have resurfaced. In the clips, Ballinger is seen speaking suggestive and inappropriate language to the clueless Dance Moms alum.

Colleen Ballinger’s Troubling Videos with JoJo Siwa Resurface

In the past weeks, Ballinger has received a huge amount of online hate after several ex-fans accused her of displaying indecent behavior. The YouTuber reportedly sent adult content to minors, causing them to feel disturbed and uneasy. With such serious allegations, Ballinger’s past videos with Siwa further heightened the public’s spite.

Back in 2016, the then 30-year-old Ballinger collaborated with Siwa to create multiple videos on YouTube. In one clip, the social media personality is lashing on Siwa’s shorts and long-sleeved top.

“You’re not supposed to dress porn when you are dancing, I can see her entire legs,” she shouted.

After Siwa had changed into pants, Miranda then replied: “I’m just now realizing that your shirt says ‘milk’ all over it. You drink milk? You know that comes from a private part?”

In the same video, Ballinger is caught asking Siwa is she hurt her “tookie” after she did splits. When the clueless kid asked what a “tookie” was, the YouTuber gestured to her crotch. 

Another video resurfaced where Ballinger was calling out the child star for twerking, saying she will “entice all the people.” She further asked Siwa: “Have you ever taken the pants off and seen what’s inside?”

Several other videos reemerged after that, further igniting the issue. These videos include Ballinger having a “slime war” with Siwa, where both of their chests were stuck together by slime. One video also showed the two playing Never Have I Ever, with topics hinging on kissing, boyfriends, and body parts.


Fans Express Disgust Amid the Unsettling Content

Upon watching Ballinger’s previous videos, many internet users were quick to express their anger. One person particularly wondered how the YouTuber had been allowed disturb minors like that for years.

“What the f. It keeps getting worse. How was this allowed to happen for so many years?!?!?” the user wrote.

Another person commented that viewing the clips was such a “hard watch.” Meanwhile, one expressed relief with the fact that Ballinger is now getting called out.

“I always thought her relationship with jojo was so weird and inappropriate. i’m glad everyone is finally talking about this,” the person wrote.

In a YouTube video uploaded last week, the content creator addressed the “grooming” allegations against her. She performed a song on her ukulele, claiming that she was “just trying to be besties with everybody.” This response apparently flared up online backlash even more.

Meanwhile, Siwa hasn’t commented on the issue yet.
