James Charles and Nikita Dragun have come to Jojo Siwa’s defense after she was dissed by DaBaby in a new freestyle.
DaBaby has come under fire in the public eye for apparently dissing YouTuber Jojo Siwa in a new remix to “Beat Box,” which he previewed on Instagram Live. Fellow YouTubers Nikita Dragun and James Charles came to Siwa’s defense on Twitter, Sunday night.
“Turn me up, n***as gon’ see why/N***a, you a bitch, JoJo Siwa (Bitch),” DaBaby raps on the track, which is drawing criticism.

Dragun responded on Twitter: “DaBaby don’t play with my girl Jojo Siwa. Put some respect on her name little boy.”
DaBaby debuted the new bars on Friday, with a music video, in which he holds up a photo of Siwa as he raps the lyric.
“Can someone please explain why da baby [sic] is dissing Jojo Siwa when she’s 12 years younger, 10 times richer, and 2 inches taller than him,” James Charles tweeted.
From there, Charles was involved in a back and forth in the tweet’s replies.
“Stay out black ppl business love we got this one,” one user wrote.
“A grown ass man is dissing a teenage girl for literally no reason this has nothing to do with race,” Charles responded.
