The singer hit out at the Stranger Things star after he posted a video revealing that Doja had sent him a personal message on Instagram enquiring about his co-star Joseph Quinn. Quinn plays Eddie in the latest series of the Netflix show.
After Schnapp shared the message to his social media, 26-year-old artist Doja attacked him for publicising the exchange, describing his behaviour as “borderline snake s***”.
The 17-year-old actor told fans that he apologised to Doja for his actions, stating on TikTok: “Guys everything is all good, I apologised and I still follow her and love her music, no hard feelings.”
In a new interview with Variety, Schnapp has revealed that Doja also apologised to him for her reaction.
“As I should, I apologised and she was totally okay with it, and was like, ‘I’m sorry how I reacted,’” he recalled.
“It was all good. 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.”
Schnapp – who plays Will in the show – continued: “People make such a big deal out of everything when it’s on the internet, but in reality, it’s a two-minute thing.”
Speaking about why he shared the DMs in the first place, the actor said: “I mean, look, I’m super unserious on social media annd pretty goofy, so I posted that not thinking too much of it, but obviously it hurt her feelings.”
At the time, Doja had said of the indiscretion in her Instagram livestream: “The fact that Noah did that, like, went and posted a private conversation between me and him is so unbelievably socially unaware and whack.
“That’s borderline snake s***, that’s weasel s***. And I’m not saying that encapsulates his entire personality – like I don’t imagine Noah that way.
“Maybe he is, like, a whole snake. But I didn’t see him that way. I made an assumption that he was gonna be chill about it, and he went and shared information that I didn’t feel comfortable with him sharing.”
She added: “To be fair this is like a kid, I don’t know how old he is but he’s not even over like 21.”
The singer has also faced criticism after she posted a now-deleted TikTok video in which she mimicked a viral line from Amber Heard’s testimony during her trial against Johnny Depp.
