There’s an update in the Noah Schnapp and Doja Cat drama.
Doja Cat has reacted to the accusations and backlash from fans and internet users. In response to the criticism, Doja tweeted, “Y’all are so cringe and lame and nobody wants to hang w u that’s why y’all be on here unironically writing replies to shit that makes you mad.”

She also liked a tweet supporting her, that read, “No one was mad at you for DMing him when he posted, they were all laughing! But the second you express your concern it’s, ‘Why was she DMing a 17-year-old?’ Like they need to be serious.”
As an added note to the situation, Doja Cat has also updated her Twitter username to say, “I’m better than you.”
How’d We Get Here?
If you’ve missed the story so far, here’s a recap. After Season 4, Part 2 of Stranger Things dropped last week, many fans were swooning over Joseph Quinn (who plays Eddie Munson). Goofy, friendly, and heroic, the character was perfectly made to be a comfort character. And the actor behind the character is easy on the eyes too. And pop star Doja Cat agrees, as she tried to slide in the actor’s DMs.
Now we’ve heard of musicians sliding in the DMs of actors from popular tv shows before. For instance, Cardi B and Penn Badgley (who plays Joe Goldberg in Netflix’s You). And for bisexual bop-machine Doja Cat, Quinn was the goal. But to get to him, the star reached out to fellow Stranger Things actor Noah Schnapp. The 26-year-old musician asked the 17-year-old actor, who plays a gay character on the show, if Joseph Quinn has a boyfriend. Schnapp then redirected her to Quinn’s Instagram account.
“Noah, can u tell Joseph to hmu,” she asked. “Wait no. Does he have a gf?”
“LMAOO slide into his dms,” Schnapp responded.
“idk his ig or twitter,” Doja Cat text back, “he doesn’t have a dm to slide in.”
Noah Schnapp then shared Joseph Quinn’s Instagram account and wrote, “Right here ma’am.”
But how do we know about this private chat? Because Noah Schnapp shared a video and screenshot of the conversation on his TikTok account. Initially, the internet had fun laughing at the situation, but wondered if Schnapp should have shared the DMs.

doja cat: just trying to slide into joseph quinn’s dms

Then yesterday, Doja Cat went live on her own TikTok account to call out Noah. She started the video by acknowledging Schnapp’s age and saying teenagers make mistakes.
“To be fair- First, let’s try to be chill about it. To be fair, this is, like, a kid. I don’t know how old he is, but there’s no way he’s over 21,” she noted. “When you’re that young, you make mistakes. You do dumb shit. I’m trying to be super fair.”
That said, Doja Cat then called Noah a snake and a weasel.
“The fact that Noah did that, like went and posted a private conversation between me and him is so unbelievably socially unaware and wack,” she said. “That’s like borderline snake shit, that’s like weasel shit. And I’m not saying that encapsulates his entire personality — like, I don’t imagine Noah that way.”
it's so funny how y'all try to villainize and attack black women for being reasonably upset and uncomfortable and try to paint them aggressive. noah schnapp had no right sharing doja cat's dms without permission for a TikTok without consulting her pic.twitter.com/sMr8C2OXg4

It’s important to note that Noah Schnapp did delete the video, but it’s unclear if he did it before or after Doja Cat addressed the situation. Though, Schnapp also posted snake videos on Instagram… before later deleting them.

Then after Doja Cat released her statement through a TikTok Live, some Twitter users questioned why the singer was private messaging a teenager in the first place. Some also accused Doja Cat of weaponizing her fans against the Stranger Things star.
i’ll NEVER understand how doja cat who’s 29 years old wanted 17 year old noah schnapp who’s never had a scene with joseph quinn to play matchmaker/cupid when all she had to do take less than 10 seconds to do it herself pic.twitter.com/1roHMyqiTP

Is Doja Cat really mad that Noah Schnapp revealed that she is interested in Joseph Quinn (which she has publicly stated btw) or is she just mad that we’ve found out her grown ass is DMing a 17 year old? pic.twitter.com/1VRNPC0Rch

And again, Doja Cat is now calling fans “cringe” for criticizing how she handled the situation. Meanwhile, Joseph Quinn’s staying out of the situation.

There was a reason why the conversation was held privately through DMs, instead of directly online. Sharing a screenshot of a private conversation to another is not cool but to post it online for millions is definitely sus AF.
We all know that if the sexes were reversed, people would be ready to crucify an older man for sliding in a 17 yo girl’s DMs to ask about her coworker. In fact, they’d say he was setting it up to start grooming her. I don’t know why Doja Cat thought it was appropriate to do with Noah. And now she’s acting like a child because he told other people. He was probably excited that she messaged him and was fanboying so he posted it. I wouldn’t have expected backlash either.
I am trying to be fair to Doja, YOu have a publicist get them to do that not a teenager that you tried to use to get to someone and then blame him. Lets be fair you have to own up and just ask the guy. Dont blame someone else for you being too scared to make the move.
