Noah Schnapp has extended an olive branch to Doja Cat following some drama last week involving his Stranger Things costar Joseph Quinn. And according to a new interview with the 17-year-old actor, his peace offering was accepted and reciprocated by the “Woman” rapper.
Catching up with Variety in a Thursday (July 14) Q&A, Schnapp first explained his thinking — or rather, lack of it — behind posting a screenshot to TikTok of his private messages with Doja in which she’d asked him to set her up with 29-year-old Quinn. “Yeah, I mean, look, I’m super unserious on social media and pretty goofy,” he explained. “I posted that not thinking too much of it, but obviously it hurt her feelings.”
After Schnapp’s since-deleted TikTok went viral, Doja — who’d previously tweeted about her crush on the “fine as s–t British actor — went on Instagram Live to say that Schnapp’s behavior was “so unbelievably, like, socially unaware and wack.” Added the 26-year-old artist, “That’s like borderline snake s–t. That’s like weasel s–t.”
Schnapp told Variety he later made amends with the Grammy winner. “So, as I should, I apologized,” he shared. “She was totally OK with it, and was like, ‘I’m sorry how I reacted.'”
“It was all good,” the Peanuts Movie star continued. “I love her. I’m, like, the biggest fan of her music, and I told her that. I was like, ‘You’re literally my role model.’ It’s all good. People make such a big deal out of everything when it’s on the internet, but, like, in reality, it’s like a two-minute thing.”
Schnapp first revealed that he’d apologized to Doja a day prior to the new interview, when he responded to an influx of replies asking about the DM drama on another one of his TikToks. “Guys everything is all good I apologized and I still follow her and love her music,” he assured them in the comments. “No hard feelings.”
