Doja Cat Faces Backlash for Controversial Fashion Choice
Doja Cat, the famous 27-year-old singer known for hits like “Say So,” found herself in hot water recently due to her choice of attire. The controversy began when she shared a series of selfies on Instagram while wearing a shirt featuring an image of the controversial comic Sam Hyde holding what appeared to be a military-grade rifle. The backlash was swift and fierce.
Sam Hyde’s notoriety comes from his alleged connections to the neo-Nazi movement and his following, which includes individuals with extremist views, such as white nationalists, misogynists, and anti-Semites. Given Hyde’s controversial reputation, Doja Cat’s decision to wear a shirt featuring his image raised eyebrows and drew criticism from her fans and the public.
Social media quickly lit up with comments condemning Doja Cat’s fashion choice. One Twitter user expressed their disappointment, saying, “Imagine being a pick-me for incels… like Doja Cat is really trying her best to be canceled and unfamous again just so she can get back to those racial chat rooms full time.” Others chimed in, highlighting concerns about her conduct and the impact of her actions on society.
One user pointed out that we should not trivialize such behavior, saying, “We can’t afford to give high-profile celebrities the benefit of the doubt while fascism is on the rise. We need to stop trivializing Doja Cat’s conduct as ‘edginess’ and be clear that she’s a Nazi sympathizer.”
Critics also questioned Doja Cat’s intentions, with some suggesting that she was pandering to a certain demographic. “Doja Cat gets away with being a TERRIBLE person because she has that cringe ‘quirky’ white incel panderer thing going on for her,” one person commented.
The controversy didn’t stop there. Some users reminded others of past controversies involving the singer, including her involvement in chatrooms with questionable individuals and her association with a sexual predator. These instances further fueled the outrage against her.
In response to the backlash, Doja Cat eventually deleted the photos featuring the controversial shirt and posted a new selfie focusing solely on her face. The caption of the new photo consisted of numerous eye-roll emojis, seemingly indicating her response to the criticism.
Doja Cat’s choice to wear a shirt featuring Sam Hyde’s image sparked controversy and backlash on social media. The incident is a reminder of the responsibility that comes with celebrity status and the potential impact of one’s actions on their public image. While some fans may continue to support her music, the incident highlights the importance of being mindful of the messages and symbolism associated with one’s clothing choices in the public eye.
