Taking to Twitter on Tuesday night (July 25), the Griselda rapper attempted to woo the Planet Her hitmaker by laying out what their potential romance could look like.
“I’m not gonna hold u I wanna steal @DojaCat from that weird looking gamer dude they be saying racist [crying face emoji],” he wrote.
“And take her to the hood so she can wear all that krazy Shìt, have her eating at DR Birds with a bald head and patent leather sundress, y’all wouldn’t be able to tell me shit.”
Doja Cat has yet to respond.

The “weird looking gamer dude” Westside Gunn was referring to is Doja Cat’s rumored boyfriend J. Cyrus, who she has been spotted kissing and spending time with on numerous occasions since November 2022.
A comedian and streamer who rose to fame on Vine in 2016, Cyrus (real name Jeffrey Cyrus) has been accused of manipulating and emotionally abusing members of his team and community.
“He used his power and influence to mistreat women who watched him stream,” Twitch streamer @emmabemmaxxx wrote in April 2021. “The last count of women who came forward was close to 20. He destroyed a community of 100s of people who trusted and admired him. @jcyrus has proven he should not be given a platform.”
One of his former moderators later came forward and claimed: “He manipulated and took advantage of women in his stream community while he held a position of power over them…on top of the years of abuse and manipulation he did to those who were volunteering their time and effort to his stream.”
The allegations of racism stem from a handful of Cyrus’ old tweets, including one from 2016 that read: “watching all these ppl post on my friends wall like ‘watch out for these cops’ & ‘be careful’ as if he hasn’t been black his whole life.”
A Vine post from 2013 that was also dug up featured the caption: “Never suggest KFC to your black friends.”
Cyrus apologized in response to the harassment allegations in 2020.
Doja Cat has been anything but when it comes to her relationship with the controversial comic. After a fan commented on one of her recent Instagram posts: “girl everyone is unstaning you even if you paint yourself gold it won’t make things better,” the Grammy-winner clapped back with venom.
“I WANT YALL TO READ THIS COMMENT AND TAKE IT AS A MESSAGE,” she replied. “I DONT GIVE A FUCK WHAT YOU THINK ABOUT MY PERSONAL LIFE I NEVER HAVE AND NEVER WILL GIVE A FUCK WHAT YOU THINK ABOUT ME OR MY PERSONAL LIFE GOODBYE AND GOOD RIDDANCE MISERABLE HOES HAHA!”
Westside Gunn is no stranger to controversy, either. The Buffalo, New York native has faced continued backlash over his series of Hitler Wears Hermes projects, which are named after the notorious Nazi leader.
His apparent affinity for Adolf Hitler made headlines again in May when Gunn shared a potential new album cover on social media featuring bricks of cocaine labeled with swastikas — a move that upset some fans. But like Doja Cat, the Flygod isn’t one to give up ground easily.
“WSG hate is the best shit on the internet,” he tweeted in response to the backlash. “Bc while I’m getting hated on Im either in my mansion, a luxury vehicle, island with my entire family, or a 5star something in the best clothes money can buy, smelling great & worth MILLIONS or even places u couldn’t dare go bc I’m a [goat emoji].”
He added: “I spit on bums your beneath me pew pew pew pew (that’s me spitting) pew pew pew pew (that’s me sitting more).”
