Doja Cat, criticized for a t-shirt linked to the extreme right

Doja Cat is once again involved in controversy. The artist, who has just released her new album ‘Scarlet’, has been the subject of controversy on social networks for her last publication, in which she was seen wearing a t-shirt belonging to a well-known far-right comedian.

The singer, who in recent weeks has suffered the anger of her fans for various reasons, such as the cover of her album or her comments about her relationship with her followers, is once again showered with criticism. On this occasion, because of the shirt that she showed in one of her Instagram posts, where she looked like Sam Hyde, a comedian linked to far-right movements.

According to Buzzfeed, Hyde was a co-writer on the Adult Swim series Million Dollar Extreme Presents: World Peace, which ended up being canceled for including racist and sexist messages. Additionally, in the image of the comedian wearing the Doja Cat t-shirt, he could be seen holding a rifle, a meme that is sometimes used on the Internet after mass shootings.

Social networks began to fill with comments about it, with disappointment predominating over the artist’s choice of clothing. As a result, Doja Cat deleted the publication. But she didn’t stop there: a few minutes later, she uploaded a similar photograph again in which she cut out that same shirt. The photo was accompanied by resignation emoticons.

Although Doja Cat has not commented on the controversy again, her number of followers decreased in the hours after the publication of the controversial photograph. Currently, his song ‘Paint The Town Road’ is number 1 on Spotify.
