Music creative Doja Cat took to TikTok where she called out “Stranger Things” actor Noah Schnapp for publishing a DM exchange in which she asked him to tell co-star Joseph Quinn to contact her. In the same exchange, she also asked whether Quinn had a girlfriend.
Not long after he posted the exchange, Doja jumped into the comments and wrote, “wow that’s low key whack of you but go off I guess. Schnapp has since deleted the post.
In the TikTok video, the 26-year-old Doja (whose real name is Amala Dlamini) acknowledged that Schnapp is young and as such is prone to make mistakes. She explained, “To be fair, this is a kid. Noah is, I don’t know old he is, but he’s not even over like, there’s no way he’s over 21. And he might be, I could be wrong.”
And while she noted it was normal for young people to say and do “dumb” things, she added, “The fact that Noah went and posted a private conversation between me and him is so unbelievably socially unaware and whack. That’s some borderline snake sh*t. That’s weasel sh*t.”
While some are supporting her critique of Schnapp, Doja has been criticized for engaging with someone who is a minor especially in the current environment when there is heightened sensitivity around adults forming friendly relationships with minors that eventually turn sexual.
Doja hasn’t been shy about her feeling about Quinn. Back in May she tweeted, “joseph quinn fine as sh*t.” Her romantic interest in Quinn is somewhat surprising because rumors have been circulating since the Super Bowl that she’s dating Pierre-Antoine Melki, a French producer.
