“First let’s try to be chill about it… be fair, this is like a kid. I don’t know how old he is, but there’s no way he’s over 21.”

Furthermore, commenting on the situation, the Hip-Hop artist shed light on her opinion of Noah Schapp, she said:

“Like, that’s like borderline snake s***…that’s like, weasel s***. And like, I’m not saying that encapsulates his entire personality. Noah is not like the definition—like I wouldn’t imagine he is. Maybe he is?”

Fans call out Doja Cat for her actions

Due to the age of the people involved and the nature of the conversation, many fans have decried Doja Cat for approaching a 17-year-old and asking him to help her out with her relationships.
