Doja Cat loses 200,000 followers after Noah Schnapp flap

Singer-rapper Doja Cat’s following on social media has reportedly thinned after she blasted Stranger Things star Noah Schnapp last week for revealing her private messages.

According to Social Blade, a social media stats and analytics website, the “Kiss Me More” and “Need to Know” hitmaker appeared to have lost about 200,000 followers on Instagram after blasting Schnapp for the leak. The drop took her to 24.14 million from 24.34 million since July 7, the day she addressed the controversy.

However, her following on TikTok — where she posts and jokes more robustly and where the snap spat played out — remained flat over the past week, remaining steady at around 25.5 million followers.

Meanwhile, Schnapp, who plays Will Byers in the hit Netflix sci-fi series, saw his Instagram followers surge from 24.25 million to 25.17 million over the same period, and has grown by nearly 1 million since the debacle began followers. The 17-year-old actor also gained nearly 3 million followers on TikTok, going from 24.4 million to 27.3 million on the video-sharing platform.

Doja Cat, 26, has made no secret of her crush on Schnapp’s “fine” co-star Joseph Quinn and pinged Schnapp to connect her. Schnapp then leaked their conversation in a now-deleted TikTok video, which he described as a “thirsty doja.”

That didn’t sit well with the Grammy-winning rapper. She took to TikTok Live to blast his “boundary snake” behavior, calling him a “kid” who is “incredibly socially unaware and insane.”

But spiky comments weren’t just for snaps. The tide also turned against Doja for soliciting Quinn’s information from a minor rather than seeking it through other channels. Other fans and followers tried to play up that Schnapp had posted his video as a joke and that the embarrassed rapper was unnecessarily upset.

The singer appeared to address the situation on Friday, tweet: “You’re all so flinched and lame and no one wants to get hung up, that’s why you’re all here writing unironically replies to s— it’s driving you nuts.”

On Friday, the musician also posted a vivid photo of what appeared to be cat feces on Instagram. “My cat is so cute I love him so much,” read the caption, prompting followers to comment, “Why are you like this??” and “Sometimes a social media manager is needed.”

Schnapp has yet to address the controversy — and neither has Quinn — and Schnapp officials have not responded to The Times requests for comment.
