Update, Wednedsay, July 13: Noah Schnapp has apparently squashed the beef with Doja Cat. Doja went on TikTok Live Thursday, July 7 to take Schnapp to task for posting their DMs without her permission. She started by acknowledging that “Noah is a kid,” and “when you’re that young, you make mistakes,” before saying, “The fact that Noah did that, like went and posted a private conversation between me and him is so unbelievably socially unaware and wack.” Doja continued, “That’s like borderline snake shit, that’s like weasel shit.” She concluded, “I made an assumption that he was gonna be chill about it and he went and shared information that I didn’t feel comfortable with him sharing.” Schnapp commented on his own TikTok video to announce the feud’s end, writing “Guys everything is all good I apologized and I still follow her and love her music no hard feelings ❤️❤️.” Meanwhile it was reported that Doja lost 200k followers on IG after the fracas, while Schnapp had gained about a million.

Original story follows.

How do you meet someone in 2022 when they don’t have a social-media profile? Through their friends, duh. Or, co-stars at least. As he told Vulture earlier this year, Stranger Things breakout Joseph Quinn doesn’t have much of a social-media footprint. “I don’t have TikTok,” he said. “I have an Instagram account managed by a friend.” Which means that he hasn’t been exposed to his auto-tuned voice in the form of “Chrissy Wake Up” nearly as much as the rest of us. But it also means Doja Cat has to rope in other cast members to shoot her shot. Noah Schnapp, who plays sweet baby Will on the show, posted DMs he exchanged with Doja Cat about the object of her affection. After pointing out that he “doesn’t have a DM to slide in,” Schnapp provides Doja with the account. But alas! That IG is maintained by “a friend.” What kind of friend, Eddie? Hmmm?
