The matter unfolded after Doja Cat, who is currently on tour in South America, had to cancel a show in Paraguay earlier this week due to severe flooding from a massive storm. She was explicitly slated to perform at the 2-day Asunciónico Festival, and—in a now-deleted tweet she made after leaving Paraguay—she critiqued fans for allegedly not appreciating her enough during her short-lived visit.
“When I left the next morning [after the storm], there wasn’t one person outside the hotel waiting for me. Let that sink in,” she tweeted.
In turn, her Paraguayan fans slammed her for not acknowledging fans who waited in the rain to see her the day before, and Doja Cat threw some more shade in another now-deleted tweet. Doja Cat then went to Brazil to continue her tour, and she shouted out the country upon her arrival. However, she was not yet off the hook.

Paraguayan fans immediately began showering the “Say So” rapper in even more scrutiny. One user even dubbed Doja Cat “public enemy #1” for not showing their country enough love during her visit. In response, Doja Cat took the petty route and tweeted, “I’m not sorry,” which further exacerbated the situation.
i moved on i’m just gonna let everybody be mad— i quit (@DojaCat) March 25, 2022
Shortly after that, the 26-year-old artist addressed her Brazilian fans in another tweet, saying that she felt she wasn’t on her A-game during her performance and would do better at the next show, which is scheduled to go down later today. Many fans responded to this tweet with even more criticism for Doja Cat.
While everything seemed cool on Doja Cat‘s end at this point, she proceeded to clap back at a user a few hours later. In her passionate response, the artist said she was quitting music.
“I don’t give a f**k anymore. I f**kin quit. I can’t wait to f**king disappear, and I don’t need you to believe in me anymore. Everything is dead to me, music is dead, and I’m a f**king fool for ever thinking I was made for this is a f**king nightmare unfollow me,” Doja Cat wrote.
She proceeded to double-down on this sentiment in a follow-up tweet, and she also changed her display name to “I quit.”
This shit ain’t for me so I’m out. Y’all take care.

Doja Cat hasn’t issued any further comments on the matter, and it’s unclear whether the rapper, who is a known troll, was being serious or just overly dramatic. People also doubt her claims because she’s slated to tour with The Weeknd this summer.
It’s also worth noting that a source close to the Doja Cat recently told TMZ that “she’s looking forward to” her upcoming performance in Brazil, so the validity of the rapper’s statements has yet to be proven.
