Sienna Mae Gomez Returning to BFFs Podcast after a Canceled Episode
Popular TikTok stars Sienna Mae Gomez and Jack Wright were best friends and allegedly in a relationship until they weren't.
The childhood friends who attended the same high school joined the Hype House, one of TikTok's longest-running content houses.
They often made videos dancing with each other, embracing and locking lips to the tunes of romantic songs.
But everything fell apart when Wright's friend made a video alleging Gomez sexually and emotionally abused Wright.
After that, there was a lot of back and forth between the two parties.
Wright released a 17-minute video on his YouTube channel on January 21 detailing everything that happened between him and Gomez.
Mae counteracted those claims in a lengthy blog post titled 'Sienna Mae Gomez: Reflections from an 18-Year-Old Me' two days later.
In the blog post, she also apologized to her former friend for making him feel "uncomfortable" during their relationship.
Wright responded to it, saying that he appreciated her apology but claimed she was "struggling to face the truth and the harmful choices she made."
Sienna Mae Gomez Was to Appear on 'BFFs' Podcast
After that, the BFFs podcast teased netizens with a TikTok snippet of Gomez appearing on the BFFs with Dave Portnoy and Josh Richards podcast.
The video has since been deleted, but tiktokinsiders captured and reshared it on Instagram.
In the comments section, fans expressed their outrage at the BFFs podcast channel for giving Gomez a platform.
They also talked about why Gomez was no longer joining them.
Portnoy recalled that one Saturday, he got a call about Gomez wanting to come on their channel to share her side of the allegations and do an exclusive.
But they later found out that the TikTok star had canceled her appearance because of Michael Gruen.
Richards added that Gomez's decision might have been impacted by Gruen, who told her not to go on any podcasts.
'BFFs' Podcast Host on the Sexual Assault
After clarifying Gomez's sudden absence from the podcast and explaining the deleted post, the four hosts discussed the situation between Gomez and Wright.

Jordan opined that Gomez sometimes got carried away when she was conversing.
He added that she "digs a bigger hole for herself," and how she went about some of her responses aggravated the situation.
The four of them then addressed Wright's 17 minutes long YouTube video, saying that every story had two sides.
Jordan shared she had seen the video and could tell Wright was feeling very emotional, which is not something somebody lying could express.
She found the video a lot more intense than she expected.
But Portnoy felt differently than Jordan, saying that he was not taking sides, but he noticed something.
He mentioned that Wright's video had "gazillion cuts like every two seconds." Although he is not sure if it means anything, it reflected Wright's stream of consciousness, or rather the lack of it.
But they all thought that the whole sexual assault allegations were a "he said she said" thing, which should not have been publicized on the internet.
