Doja Cat says she tested positive for the coronavirus months after mocking those who took it seriously. During a July 24 interview with Capital XTRA, the singer said that she recently contracted the virus and experienced noticeable symptoms for a few days. “I got COVID. Honestly, I don’t know how this happens but I guess I ordered something off of Postmates and I don’t know how I got it but I got it,” she explained. “I’m okay now. It was a four-day symptom freakout but I’m fine now.”
Ironically in early March the “Say So” and “Boss Bitch” artist had mocked people who were scared of the virus on Instagram live:
“Bitch, I’m not scared of a coronavirus or the motherfucking beer version of that shit,” she said. “I’m gonna get corona and then I’m gonna get a Corona,” she added, referring to the popular beer, “‘cos I don’t give a fuck about corona, bitch. It’s a flu!”
She said those afraid of the virus were “pussy.”
“You just take some Mucinex and drink water and tea and sleep — that’s all you gotta do,” she said. “Y’all are so scared of some damn corona. Y’all are so scared of corona that I need a Corona.”
She didnt reveal exactly when she had it but she has since recovered.
