It’s seems this tea may finally be finished, friends: Noah Schnapp has broken his silence on his beef with Doja Cat over those thirsty DMs about Joseph Quinn.
Whether or not you reckon Schnapp was wrong for making a TikTok about private DMs, the Stranger Things star revealed he apologised to Doja Cat after she said his behaviour was some “snake shit”.
“Yeah, I mean, look, I’m super unserious on social media and pretty goofy, so I posted that not thinking too much of it, but obviously it hurt her feelings,” Schnapp told Variety.
“So, as I should, I apologised and she was totally okay with it, and was like, ‘I’m sorry how I reacted’. It was all good.
“I love her. I’m like the biggest fan of her music, and I told her that. I was like, you’re literally my role model. It’s all good. People make such a big deal out of everything when it’s on the internet, but, like, in reality, it’s like a two minute thing.”
In case you missed the gossip of the month, Noah Schnapp posted a now-deleted TikTok video showing Doja messaging him about linking up with Stranger Things co-star Quinn.
Quinn plays Eddie Munson on the show, a character who literally the whole universe is thirsting over. Doja Cat had also previously tweeted about him being “fine as shit”.

In the DM messages Schnapp shared, Doja Cat asked for Quinn’s deets.
“Can you tell Joseph to HMU?” she asked.
Schnapp then linked her to Quinn’s Instagram account and told her to “slide in to his DMs”.
But in an Instagram Live, Doja went in on Schnapp for sharing the messages. She said he “went and shared information that I didn’t feel comfortable sharing”.

“I’m just going to say something right now about the whole fucking Noah Schnapp thing,” she started the vid.
“I think that, to be fair, first let’s try to be chill about it. To be fair, this is a kid. Noah is like… I don’t even know how old he is but… there’s no way he’s over like 21.”
Doja pointed out that people do “dumb shit” when they’re young and “make mistakes”.
“I’m trying to be super fair. You do dumb shit, you say dumb shit, you fucking fuck up relationships with people,” she said.
“You’re supposed to do stuff like that so you know you’re not supposed to do it in the future. I did my fair share of fuck ups so I don’t fuck up again.”
I mean, some pretty good life advice there.
But she then went in on his behaviour harder, labelling it “borderline snake shit” and “weasel shit”.
“The fact that Noah went and did that, posted a private conversation between me and him is so unbelievably socially unaware and whack,” she said.
“That’s like borderline snake shit. That’s like weasel shit. I’m not saying that encapsulates his entire personality — I don’t imagine him that way.
“Maybe he is like a whole snake, but I didn’t see him that way. I made an assumption he was gonna be chill about it and he went and shared information that I didn’t feel comfortable with him sharing.”
Obviously, this seems like an intense response to something that really isn’t that spicy. Okay, so he shared a DM of you asking about the deets of someone you publicly said was hot. We already know you’re into him, so what?
Well, one TikToker reminded fans there have been rumours for some time that Doja Cat has a secret boyfriend.
It’s probably a bit awkward to be publicly exposed for sliding into a guy’s DMs if you have a BF, especially if you publicly thirsted after said guy, hey?
Comments on the TikTok pointed out this could explain why Doja was so mad about the text leak, since it seemed pretty innocuous.
“Maybe that’s why she was so defensive about it,” one person wrote.
“‘Wait does he have a girlfriend’ no but you have a boyfriend,” wrote another.
Look, it’s not confirmed that Doja has a boyfriend, and in the past she’s had relationships that were open so even then it doesn’t mean she was cheating. Buuuut it’s an interesting observation given how tense the whole situation seems. It’s certainly a better reason to be mad.
Either way, Daily Mail has reported that Doja has lost 200,000 followers since her Instagram Live. A true drop in the ocean given she has ah, 24.1 million followers at the time of writing this article. It’s around 0.08 per cent of her total following.
Meanwhile Noah Schnapp’s Instagram followers have increased by over a million. According to social media analytics company Social Blade his count went from 24.2 million to 25.5 million followers. Let’s take into account that everyone’s going nuts for the new Stranger Things season though, shall we?
