If it were up to Doja Cat, fanbases would not be allowed to name themselves. Per my girlfriend, Ed Sheeran's fanbase is called “Sheerios,” and I've heard that Greta Van Fleet‘s is the “fetuses,” but Doja Cat is not a fan of the one her fanbase appointed themselves.

Apparently, Doja Cat fans have begun calling themselves the “Kittenz,” with the singular fan being a “Kitten.” One can't blame the rapper for not being too keen on the self-appointed nickname, and she took to Twitter (or now X) to respond.

In a series of since-deleted tweets (which can be seen via Page Six), Doja Cat went after her fanbase. “My fans don't name themselves s**t. If you call yourself a ‘kitten' or f**king ‘kittenz' that means you need to get off your phone and get a job and help your parents with the house.”

She continued by calling out a fan who used her government name in their social media handles. “You making my government name ur sn is creepy as f**k,” she said in response to a fan with the username @amalazandiledlamlni (her government name is Amala Ratna Zandile Dlamini).

Responding to another fan who asked what they should change their username to since she doesn't “like the term kitten,” she said, “Just delete the entire account and rethink everything it's never too late.”

Doja Cat is a Grammy-winning artist with three albums under her belt (with another coming this year). She is also gearing up for her second headlining tour — the “Scarlet” tour — with support acts including Ice Spice and Doechii.
