According to Variety, Doja told Capital XTRA that she had symptoms that lasted for a few days – and blamed the food delivery app Postmates for contracting the virus.
Doja, whose real name is Amalaratna Zandile Dlamini, said, “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.I’m okay now. It was a four-day symptom freakout, but I’m fine now.”

You just take some Mucinex and drink water and tea and sleep — that’s all you gotta do. Y’all are so scared of some damn corona. Y’all are so scared of corona that I need a Corona.”
Many on Twitter pointed out the irony and made fun of her:
