JoJo Siwa says she’s “not sure” why she didn’t receive an invitation to the Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards.

The awards took place on Saturday evening (April 9) with some fans questioning the absence of the YouTube star and Boomerang singer.

Responding to the confusion in a video posted to Instagram, Siwa admitted that she hadn’t been invited to this year’s ceremony.

“A lot of you have been asking me why I’m not at the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards tonight and the answer is very simple: I wasn’t invited.” Appearing somewhat confused by the decision herself, Siwa continued, “I’m not sure why, but I just didn’t get an invite.”

Siwa later retweeted a post by one Twitter user who suggested Nickelodeon’s decision was motivated by homophobia: “The only year that @itsjojosiwa didn’t get invited to the kids choice awards is when she comes out and cute her hair?????? Sus @Nickelodeon.”

Siwa has been closely affiliated with Nickelodeon since signing an exclusive deal in 2017, rising to become something of an unofficial representative for the network.

The 18-year-old previously called out the channel in September 2021, claiming it was preventing her from performing any of the songs featured in her film, The J Team, during her D.R.E.A.M. Tour.

“My movie musical was just released (with 6 new original songs)… Nickelodeon told me today that I’m not allowed to perform/add any of the songs from the film into my show,” she wrote in since-deleted tweets. “These are MY songs, MY voice, MY writing. Does this seem fair???”
