Doja Cat has once again struck a chord with people after she posted and deleted an image of her wearing a shirt with an image of alt-right comic Sam Hyde.

On Friday, the Scarlet singer shared a photo of herself sitting in a car while wearing the shirt showing the comic holding a rifle. The issue with the photo, often used as a meme following mass shootings, comes from Hyde reportedly having ties to the neo-Nazi movement.

Doja initially deleted the post but later shared another photo with the image of Hyde cropped out with a caption featuring several eye roll emojis. The quick post-delete-post wasn't fast enough for fans who criticized the 27-year-old in the comment section. 

"Girl get it together. this isn't cute or funny," someone wrote. Another said, "Pick me girl for white men." 

A third person said, "Damn admitting to be anti-jew, anti-gay and anti-Black while Black and cosplaying as gender nonconforming is interesting."

Hyde was a co-writer on the Adult Swim show, Million Dollar Extreme Presents: World Peace, which was canceled after one season following complaints of racist and sexist themes. He also donated $5,000 to the neo-Nazi website Daily Stormer when the outlet's editor Andrew Anglin was dealing with a lawsuit with the Southern Poverty Law Center in 2017 for allegedly trolling a Jewish woman.

This isn't the first time Doja Cat showed some type of connection to alt-right groups. In 2020, a song from 2015 surfaced online called "Dindu Nuffin," which is also an alt-right term used to ridicule Black people who suffered police brutality and claimed their innocence. She apologized but then had to deal with footage of her in Tinychat chat rooms saying the word "n***er." 

Doja apologized for that as well but claimed she was never involved in any racist conversations. People who were in the chat rooms with Doja came forth and backed up her claim, stating she never said anything discriminatory during their conversations, which they explained weren't explicitly racist.
