If you’ve been using Gen Z’s favorite app lately, you might have come across plenty of TikTok videos hinting at a popular protest trend using the Doja Cat name.
The September 1 protest challenge is taking the app by storm, with hundreds of users posting and participating in the trend.
What is Doja Cat’s September 1 protest on TikTok?
TikTok videos claim Doja Cat protested that anyone using the sound included in the trend will receive $3,111 – although no evidence the rapper is talking about the protest could be found.
“Rumor has it the doja cat has come forward for everyone to get $3,111 on September 1st ‘if they use this sound,'” TikTok user @lifewjan shared in a video. “Personally, I don’t want to wake up on september 1st saying ‘fuck i should have listened to my daughter doja cat. so i’m using this sound.
To participate in the September 1 protest, TikTok users must create a video using the audio “Beach Waves Sounds – Ocean Sounds, Sea Waves Sounds, and Ocean Wave.”
After that, they will allegedly receive $3,111 on September 1 – but we’ll see about that. Either way, it won’t hurt to use sound to attract good energy into your life!
Over 3 million videos have been posted using the supposedly blessed audio sound. The hashtag #3111 and #manifesting3111 has accumulated over 13 million views.
Users were quick to board in hopes that their protests would come to life.
“Doja Cat manifested that everyone who uses this sound before August 31st will get $3,111. Obviously we’re not skipping it because I’m superstitious afffff,” another user shared.
According to some users, the trend is indeed working and they have already received a cash bonus.
TikTok user @wendyskin claims she received $3,252.58 in her bank account after using the audio.
“I never skipped a single one of these videos and woke up with this in my bank account. Thank you cat doja!!!!” she wrote.
Another user shared that she received $3,000 through Zelle and earned $111 in tips the night before. “Doja cat stop playing with me now. I’m shaking,” she wrote.
Although Doja Cat’s name is included in almost every one of these protest videos, there is no evidence that the artist was the one who started the trend.
Doja Cat herself has yet to make a statement about the viral TikTok videos that users attribute to her.
