A fan account for Doja Cat posted a fake apology on social media, Tuesday, purporting that the singer addressed her recent controversy regarding the wearing of a shirt featuring alleged neo-nazi internet personality Sam Hyde. Despite the circulation of the statement, Doja still hasn’t spoken out about the backlash. She did, however, delete the photo from her Instagram.

The Twitter page, UpdatesOfDoja, captioned the statement as if it had been deleted: “Doja cat really should’ve kept this.” The response reads: “You guys, I literally had no idea who that man was. I got that shirt from a thrift sale. I thought it looked cool cause he was holding a gun and I had a single called ‘Gun’ coming next month. Sorry.”Doja Cat Fans Seemingly Create Fake Apology

While many users in the replies fell for the apology, others called out the fan account. “Not yall making a fake apology Im begging yall go outside be like icarly and live life breathe air,” one wrote. The controversy arrives shortly after the release of Doja’s latest album, Scarlet. She dropped the project back on Friday, September 22, 2023, with no features. It peaked at number four on the US Billboard 200. Check out the fake statement on the Sam Hyde situation below.
