This is what you’re not supposed to do on social media. Grammy-winning artist Doja Cat has found herself in hot water after scolding fans for calling themselves “kittenz”, telling them to “get a job and help your parents with the house.”
While it’s common for fandoms to have names (see Rihanna’s Navy, Nicki Minaj’s Barbz, and the BTS Army), Doja Cat insisted that her fandom doesn’t have one.
“TheKittenzWeb” asked Doja Cat what they should change their name to instead, to which Doja replied, “Just delete the entire account and rethink everything. It’s never too late.”
The 27-year-old rapper continued with more posts on Threads saying that people using her real name (Amala) in their usernames is “creepy as f-ck.” Another fan account told Doja that they wanted to hear her say that she loves her fans, and Doja replied, “I don’t though because I don’t even know y’all.”
A Taylor Swift fan account responded to this comment by acknowledging that they don’t know Doja either, but they have thrown their support behind her, telling the rapper that she’d be “nothing” without her fans.
The interaction ended with Doja writing back, “Nobody forced you, [I don’t know] why you’re talking to me like you’re my mother bitch, you sound like a crazy person.”
This isn’t the first time Doja Cat has lashed out at her fans, previously mocking them in a now-deleted Tweet and calling her own music “cash grabs.”
“Planet Her and Hot Pink were cash grabs and y’all fell for it. Now I can go disappear somewhere and touch grass with my loved ones on an island while y’all weep for mediocre pop,” the singer posted.
Girl. Get it TOGETHER!
