Doja Cat is apparently upset with 17-year-old Stranger Things actor Noah Schnapp after he shared their private DMs about his co-star Joseph Quinn. Apparently, Doja Cat has a thing for the newly added Stranger Things actor and wanted Schnapp to make the connection. Schnapp later shared the conversation to his social media and the post went viral — which didn’t sit well with Doja Cat.
On Thursday (July 7), the Planet Her singer/rapper headed to Instagram Live and chastised Schnapp for the indiscretion, while simultaneously acknowledging he was perhaps too young to understand what he was doing.
“I think that, to be fair, let’s try to be chill about it,” she said. “Like Noah is a kid, but, I don’t even know how old he is, but he can’t be over – like there’s no way he’s over 21. But when you’re that young, you make mistakes. You do dumb shit. I’m like trying to be super fair.
“You do dumb shit, you say dumb shit, you fucking, fuck up relationships with people. You make mistakes. Like you’re supposed do that so that you know you’re not supposed to do that in the future. I did my share of fuck ups so that I don’t fuck up again.”
But then Doja Cat switched her tone and added, “The fact that Noah did that, like went and posted a private conversation between me and him is so unbelievably socially unaware and wack. That’s like borderline snake shit, that’s like weasel shit.”
She continued, “And I’m not saying that that encapsulates his entire personality – like I don’t imagine Noah that way. Maybe he is, like a whole snake. But I didn’t see him that way. I made an assumption that he was gonna be chill about it and he went and shared information that I didn’t feel comfortable with him sharing.”
Doja Cat’s private DMs were shared just last month by DJ Akademiks. After Doja Cat was outed for perusing racist chat rooms and once writing a song called “Dindu Nuffiin” in 2020, the media personality covered it like any other outlet. But behind the scenes, Akademiks was on the receiving end of Doja Cat’s frustrations.
During an episode of Off The Record, Akademiks pulled up some old DMs from Doja Cat and read them aloud.
“This is why I don’t like you, man,” she began. Then Akademiks played a recording of her saying, “The problem is you exploit people. You exploit people’s depression. You exploit people’s mistakes. And you try to bring attention to things that don’t need attention. And it makes you a sick person.”
Akademiks also revealed Doja Cat’s first message to him was “nobody likes you.” He replied, “That’s cool. I don’t like anyone either.” He continued, “She’s like, ‘You’re a low-life piece of shit. I really don’t like you at all. It’s easy for someone like you to say with no feelings.’”
