People are raining in on social media to condemn Doja Cat after a selfie shows her wearing a t-shirt with an alleged neo-Nazi printed on it.
Last month, Doja Cat - real name Amala Ratna Zandile Dlamini - came under fire for branding the Kardashians 'plastic' in her latest song, and now she's facing heat once again, but this time for her choice of t-shirt.
Pop Faction took to X - formerly known as Twitter - to share background information about Sam Hyde from Hope Not Hate - a UK-based advocacy group which campaigns against racism and fascism.
The post reads: "Doja Cat receives backlash for posting a selfie while in a shirt with neo Nazi Sam Hyde on it.
"• Hyde is a longstanding far-right activist with a history of racism, homophobia, misogyny and spreading antisemitic conspiracy theories.
"• He has links to some of America’s best-known white nationalists and neo-Nazis, and has donated $5,000 to the Daily Stormer, the most notorious Nazi website in the world.
"• He has appeared on white nationalist podcasts as recently as November 2020. (HopeNotHate)."
People have flocked to social media to criticise her choice of t-shirt.
One user said: "Doja cat’s 'quirky rebel' stuff was cute, but association with neo nazis is inexusable and no one should make joke of this???"
"I don’t want to hear anyone say good about her anymore. I don’t care, if she’s going to have a Neo N@zi in her shirt, I don’t want to hear the 'separate artist from art' s**t. I need you all to be serious & she how much of a awful person she is. Stop supporting her," another wrote.
A third commented: "We can’t afford to give high profile celebrities the benefit of the doubt while fascism is on the rise. we need to stop trivializing Doja Cat’s conduct as 'edginess' and be clear that she’s a Nazi Sympathizer."
Doja Cat has seemingly responded to the backlash she's faced, uploading another selfie, this time to her main grid on Instagram, with the rolling eyes emoji repeated in the caption.
In the image she appears to be wearing the same t-shirt - her make-up the same as the story selfie - but the shot focuses on her face and tiara on her head, the t-shirt hidden from view.
And it's not taken long for followers to flood to the comments to continue their condemnation of the musician.
One Instagram user wrote: "Why are you hiding your shirt? embarrassed that you’re wearing something with a nazi on it ? :/."
"We saw the first post," another added.
An X user said: "The fact that this doja cat's reaction to getting called out for wearing a shirt with a neo nazi on it after knowingly purchasing and willingly wearing it ... you don't walk into a store and buy a shirt with a neo nazi on it that's something you actively seek out btw."
And a fourth resolved: "Too late."
UNILAD has contacted Doja Cat and Sam Hyde's representatives for comment.
