It seems as though the social media kid star list grows by the day and I’m introduced to new names and faces I’ve never heard before. It’s like I can no longer keep up with who y’all decide to make famous.
I’m sure you’ve all heard of Danielle Bregoli–aka Cash Me Ousside girl, aka Bhad Bhabie. The 15-year-old appeared on The Dr. Phil Show a few years ago and became the meme of the year with her one-liners threatening people in the audience.
Since then, Bregoli has made a name for herself across social media and the music industry, as she’s now a rapper signed to an actual music label–and makes actual money off of her tracks. No, I’m serious, her song “Hi Bich/Whatchu Know” has 111 million views on YouTube.
Bregoli has been known to cause some drama and controversy online. Just a few months ago, she was seen fighting with Lil Tay and Woah Vicky in public. But, now, she’s taking jabs at another teen star–JoJo Siwa.
Siwa is a YouTube personality and spokesperson/singer who appeared on the TV show Dance Moms. She clearly has a different aesthetic than Bregoli, who goes for the “bad girl vibe.” Siwa, on the other hand, is all fluff, unicorns, and bows.
So, where does the drama come in? It all started when one mom wrote something online praising Siwa for being such a “good influence” for her daughter. She was trying to “stand up” for Siwa, who gets a lot of heat on social media for acting too young. In the process, she completely trashed Bregoli, who she called a “delinquent.”
Siwa, however, appreciated the love and responded to the tweet saying that she wants everyone to know it’s “okay” to be a kid and they all don’t need to “grow up too fast.”
This post means so much to me. Thank you Nicole for writing this! I love being a positive role model and I want everyone to know it’s ok to be a kid and to not worry about growing up so fast! To everyone who supports me, I LOVE YOU! ❤ pic.twitter.com/rDuewQPz9n

Bregoli was not happy about Siwa’s response–or the mother’s comments. So, she simply said:
Suck my dick https://t.co/A9bxDRgn9y

Siwa, who claims she’s a positive influence on all young women and stays “away” from drama, pulled a petty card and said:
Exactly my point https://t.co/SMUn0702s4

While most people are usually against Bregoli and her career, they had her back on this one. Twitter had a lot of thoughts on the drama–specifically that Siwa was a hypocrite and wrong for dragging Bregoli for living a different lifestyle than her own.
People pointed out that Bregoli and Siwa grew up differently, and keyed in that Bregoli was put in situations that made her mature much faster (hella relatable). Additionally, they pointed out that 15-year-olds shouldn’t have to be one specific way (like Siwa’s super childish aesthetic, or Bregoli’s bad girl aesthetic).
I’m glad you’re getting dragged for this tweet sis. You should’ve left Bhad Babie alone… aren’t you like 16? Why do you still have the aesthetic of an 11 year old at Claire’s?

why do you support your fans tearing other girls down?
— MK (@broganboggan) July 27, 2018
You’re 15 trying to make young women feel like they have to be dressed and act like they’re 8 years old from 2004 in order to be respected

I mean I live for you Jojo, but its not very positive or a good role model to try and bring someone down for who they are and how they act even if it’s a more “grown” then you.

I’m pretty sure your life style wasn’t the same as Dani’s? So your point is invalid . Bashing on a girl who just grew up faster than you makes you just as less of a good ‘role model’ .. js

Why do you have to tear someone down just to look good? Smh

First of all. Everyone has reasons for how they act. You & Danielle’s lives were completely different. Some people mature faster because of things they’ve been through. Stay in your lane cupcake.

Its reassuring to see girls like Jojo acting the same way I and my friends did when we were young, but also don’t think we should be shaming Danielle for growing up fast, some girls just grow up fast, considering the way her mom acted on dr phil I dont blame her for growing fast.

it really wasn’t necessary to post ss of someone BASHING danielle. you posting this shows your true colors. there’s nothing wrong with either of you being who you are. so there’s no need to bring attention to negativity like this. maybe you SHOULD grow up. maturity is obv lacking

I guess everyone shows their true colors eventually when it comes to social media.
