Doja Cat Tells Fans She Doesn't Love Them and Ridicules Their Fandom Name, Kittenz and Kitten
On Sunday, Doja Cat blasted her followers for calling themselves "Kitten" or "Kittenz" in a since-deleted Thread post, which can be seen below. Although she admitted to creating her fan base's name when she was "an alcohol teen," Doja Cat still wasn't too fond of the moniker. "Kittenz" and "Kitten" came about after Doja Cat made an official Twitter poll about naming her fans kittens or cubs in 2020.
"My fans don't name themselves s**t," she wrote in a her since-deleted Threads post obtained by The Shade Room. "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."
Doja Cat also told her fans that she didn't love them after one of them requested the Los Angeles-based rapper to say it. Doja responded by suggesting that she only speaks on her terms.
"My life my rules[,] my style[,] my attitude," she wrote to a fan.
After another fan requested Doja Cat to say that she loved her "Kittenz," she said that she didn't love them because they're complete strangers.
The person replied, "I wanna hear you say (I do love you guys) as usual you say to your fans."
Doja Cat wrote back: "I don't though cuz i don't even know yall."
She also told another fan to stop acting like a parental figure after they reminded her that Doja Cat wouldn't be famous without them. After her slew of critical tweets, Doja Cat's top fan pages have deactivated their accounts.
