JoJo Siwa swatting incident
A swatting is an act where one calls the police in the form of a prank call and reports an incident that never took place. JoJo was the latest victim of this prank. It is unknown, at the moment, who had made that call. However, JoJo believes that media could have played a role in it.
Taking to her social media, JoJo explained why she was asked to evacuate her house. “We were at the house, and all of a sudden, a whole bunch of police was asking us to come out,” she revealed. “We went outside, hands up because you have to follow the rules. The police were saying somebody had called and made a claim, and then all of a sudden, paparazzi came from around the corner.
She continued, “It is called swatting where the media will actually call the police so that way you have to come outside your house.” JoJo revealed she thinks her TikTok video about “coming out to the internet” could be the reason for the incident to take place.
JoJo ended the video by stating she was fine. However, the reality star added that she had hoped the police could have spent their time doing something better than getting involved because of a prank call.
