doja cat‘s recent attempts at a subtle DM slide were sabotaged when Stranger Things star Noah Schnapp posted their private messages on TikTok.
The singer messaged Schnapp on Instagram to ask about his co-star Joseph Quinn, who plays Eddie Munson on this season of the show, and his relationship status. “Noah can you tell Joseph to [hit me up],” she wrote, before adding, “Wait no. Does he have a girlfriend?” The actor replied, “LMAOO slide into his dms from him.” But Doja said she couldn’t find any of her Quinn’s social media accounts, prompting Schnapp to send her a link to her Instagram profile. This is also not the first time the pop star has expressed her interest in Stranger Things’ latest star, she also stated bluntly on Twitter on May 30, “joseph quinn fine as shit.”
But while Doja may not have a problem expressing her interest in Quinn, she did take issue with her messages being shared with Schnapp’s 30 million TikTok followers after he posted a screenshot of their conversation in a since-deleted video. In an Instagram Live on Thursday night, Doja said, “I think that to be fair, first, let’s try to be chill about it. Like Noah is a kid, but, I don’t even know how old he is, but like there’s no way he’s over 21. When you’re that young, you make mistakes, you do dumb shit. I’m trying to be super fair…You’re supposed to do stuff like that so that you know not to do it in the future. I did my share of fuck-ups so that I don’t fuck up again.”
However, she went on to brand the unbelievably social move “unaware and wack,” explaining that she felt violated to have their private conversation exposed that way. She added, “That’s like borderline snake shit. That’s like weasel shit. I’m not saying that encapsulates his entire personality. I wouldn’t imagine he is. 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.” So far, neither Schnapp nor Quinn has publicly responded to her Doja’s statements.
