Doja Cat lost 200K followers on social media after slamming Noah Schnapp for putting their private DMs online. The “Stranger Things” actor, however, gained a million followers in response to the public blowout.
In her efforts to shoot her shot at ‘Stranger Things’ actor Joseph Quinn, Doja Cat slid into the DM’s of his 17-year-old co-star Noah Schnapp, but things went left when Schnapp posted the messages online.
Doja went live on TikTok on Thursday night to seemingly blast Noah for posting their private DMs, and while she said she was trying to be cool about it, Doja insinuated that the young actor was being a “weasel” and a “snake.”
Fans did not appear to be divided on the issue, with the social media numbers telling the story of who came out on top.
Doja Cat Loses 200K Followers, Noah Schnapp Gains A Million After DM Leak
Doja, whose real name is Amala Ratna Zandile Dlamini, saw her followers plummet from 24.34 million to 24.14 million from Wednesday to Monday. Social media analytics company Social Blade measured a jump in Noah’s follow count from 24.25 million to 25.17 million over the same period of time, UNILAD first reported.
Doja herself acknowledged the fact that Schnapp is still just “a kid” while rebuking him for the social media faux pas, which likely played into the ensuing backlash.
“Let’s try to be chill about it. To be fair, this is like a kid. Like, Noah is like…I don’t know how old he is, but there’s no way he’s like over 21. And he might be, like I could be wrong. But, like, when you’re that young, you make mistakes. You do dumb sh*t. I’m like trying to be super fair.”
Singer Was Trying To Shoot Her Shot With Schnapp’s “Stranger Things” Co-Star
Schnapp posted a TikTok on Wednesday, which has since been deleted, containing a screenshot of his brief conversation with Doja. In a few messages, she inquired about Schnapp’s 29-year-old co-star, who plays Eddie Munson on the latest season of the Netflix series.
Nevertheless, Doja stated that Noah’s behavior was “wack” and uncalled for.
“The fact that this person, that Noah did that. Like went and posted a private conversation between me and him is so unbelievably like socially unaware and wack. And like, you know what I mean? That’s like borderline snake sh*t. That’s like weasel sh*t. And like I’m not saying that encapsulates his whole personality.”
No word on whether or not Doja got in contact with Joseph.
