The "Agoura Hills" hitmaker wrapped up her message with a call to action that might resonate with some people.

"Please watch how you talk to and about people on the internet. Bye," she said.

While Doja Cat is no longer on the platform, this is not the first time she has parted ways with fans on the app. The outlet reports that she lost more than 250,000 followers in July 2023 after she was embroiled in an argument with her fans who have dubbed themselves her “Kittenz.”

“My fans don’t name themselves s–t,” she wrote on Threads last July. “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.”
