Doja Cat is under fire for wearing a T-shirt with controversial comic Sam Hyde on it in recent social media snaps.
The comedian reportedly has ties to the neo-Nazi movement.
In June 2017, Hyde pledged $5,000 to neo-Nazi blogger Andrew Anglin and his website, the Daily Stormer, amid the latter’s legal battle with the Southern Poverty Law Center over his alleged “trolling” of a Jewish woman, according to the Los Angeles Times.
Per the outlet, the popular prankster, 38, developed a following consisting of white nationalists, misogynists and antisemites.
On Friday, Doja posted — and then deleted — photos of herself on Instagram wearing a black tee that showcased Hyde holding a rifle.
Fans immediately took to Instagram to express their disappointment over the “Paint the Town Red” singer’s choice of clothing.

“Imagine being a pick me for incels… like doja cat is really trying her best to be cancelled and un-famous [sic] again just so she can get back to those racial chat rooms full time,” one person tweeted.
Another opined, “Doja Cat gets away with being a TERRIBLE person because she has that cringe ‘quirky’ white incel panderer thing going on for her. It’s kinda hard to look at someone like that and be like ‘oh she’s the devil’, you’re only like ‘her stoopid [sic] ass has started again’ and move on.”
A third person added, “Doja cat is a trailer trash white woman hands down. She ain’t no dummy tho because she’s catering to that cult so if a lot of her Black fans fall off she can still maintain her career.”

Doja, 27, has not directly addressed the criticism and her reps did not immediately return Page Six’s request for comment.
However, the “Attention” singer posted another shot of herself on Instagram Friday wearing the scandalous shirt again, but she cropped Hyde’s face from the image this time.
She captioned the new pic with several eye-roll emojis, seemingly annoyed by her fans’ remarks.

Another pointed out, “girl, we saw you wearing a nazi shirt 💀.”

Doja has been getting called out often recently for making several controversial decisions.
In May, she claimed her last two albums were a “cash grab” and poked fun at her fans for “falling” for it.
Doja then ripped apart her followers in July for calling themselves “Kittenz,” claiming they were “creepy” and needed to “get a job.”
