Rapper Lil Nas X among stars cheering Jojo Siwa as she comes out as gay

One of the celebrities who are sending help messages is Lil Nas X, Paris Hilton and Ellen DeGeneres, after YouTube star JoJo Siwa has been labeled gay.

Singer and dancer, 17, who found success on the Dance Moms show, first talked about the social media revelation in a TikTok video, in which she dances the song Born This Way of Lady Gaga, generally known as the "LGBTQ" anthem.

The video has accrued nearly 5 million people and 25 million views and is by far Siwa's most famous TikTok video.

My cousin had a pic.twitter.com/DuHhgRto7b shirt for me.

Later she shared a definitive note, posting a snapshot of herself sporting a T-shirt reading "Best.

Gay. Gay.

Cousin. Cousin.

Ever." And her cousin said he had it for her.

Old Town Rapper Lil Nas X responded, "If you're spelling 'swag' backward, it's 'gay.'
