In the now-deleted tweets, Doja Cat addressed her fandom’s name, which she had coined as “Kittenz.” However, instead of receiving support from her devoted followers, she faced backlash for her remarks. She expressed her disapproval of fans using the term “kitten” or “kittenz” to identify themselves, stating that they should prioritize more important matters, like getting a job and helping their parents with household responsibilities.
Doja Cat slandering her fans is crazy tbh cos I don’t understand why you would attack your fans for just giving themselves a name just like every other fanbase out there.— BASITO (@itzbasito) July 23, 2023
I know what signs like these mean.
Naturally, this did not sit well with her loyal stans, who felt hurt and disappointed by her response. Some fans even questioned their own choice of username, wondering what to change it to since Doja Cat was against the term “kitten.” One fan account, thekittenzweb, sought guidance from the singer but was met with a suggestion to delete the entire account and reconsider everything.

Though the tweets have been taken down, screenshots quickly spread like wildfire across Twitter, Instagram, and TikTok, ensuring that the repercussions of her words continue to be felt.
