Most musicians lap up the attention from their fans, but not Doja Cat.
In recent weeks, the ‘Kiss Me More’ singer has hit out at criticism surrounding her personal life, even calling her followers ‘miserable h**s’ as she got her claws out.
Unsurprisingly, it's led to a major backlash, with the Grammy award winner losing nearly 400,000 fans on Instagram alone.
The controversy began last month after some fans expressed concerns over Doja Cat’s rumoured relationship with J. Cyrus.
As photos of them emerged online, several fans accused Cyrus of grooming and sexual misconduct – even citing a previous Twitch post by the comedian as proof.
In response, the ‘Say So’ singer blocked several followers and took a swipe at fans with a pointed comment on Instagram.
She wrote: “I want yall to read this comment and take it as a message. I don't give a f**k what you think about my personal life. I never have and never will give a f**k what you think about me or my personal life goodbye and good riddance miserable h**s haha!”
Later that month, she made several controversial posts on Threads that were also catty about her hardcore fans.
In the now-deleted posts, the musician even called them ‘creepy’ and told them to ‘go get a job’. (Ouch!)
Her claws were out in another thread as well, with Doja angrily lashing out at her fans' pet name – which is ‘kittenz’ or ‘kittens’.
She told them: “my fans don't name themselves s**t. if you call yourself a ‘kitten’ or f**king ‘kittenz’ that means you need to get off your phone and get a job and help your parents with the house.” (Double ouch!)
Understandably, the controversial posts have led many fans to turn away from the musician – who has lost over 566,040 followers on Instagram in the last month.
The stats, collected from the website Social Blade, estimate that the pop star lost over 373,000 followers in the days after her controversial thread posts.
Despite this, the singer has yet to apologise for the incident.
Meanwhile, her former fans continue to call her out online as they fight like cats and dogs.
One wrote: “Not her tryna drop music after disowning her audience.”
Another added: “this s**t better be fire for how disrespectful you've been to your entire fan base lately.”
Here’s hoping the singer stops playing cat and mouse with her fans soon.
