Doja Cat has been catching a lot of slack for her use of the racial slurs and frequenting seemingly white supremecist chat rooms. Now, the 24-year-old is responding to the mounting backlash as the #DojaCatIsOverParty continues to trend on Twitter. 

“I want to address what’s been happening on Twitter,” Doja began her statement. “I’ve used public chat rooms to socialize since I was a child. I shouldn’t have been on some of those chat room sites, but I personally have never been involved in any racist conversations. I’m sorry to everyone I offended.”

In addition to the use of the chat rooms that featured racial slurs, the “Say So” rapper was also dragged by fans for her 2015 track, “Dindu Nuffin,” racist slur mocking victims of police brutality. 

“As for the old song that’s resurfaced, it was in no way tied to anything outside of my own personal experience,” Doja added. “It was written in response to people who often used that term to hurt me. I made an attempt to flip its meaning, but recognize that it was a bad decision to use the term in my music.”

Doja, whose real name is Amalaratna Zandile Dlaminifather is the daughter of South African actor Dumisani Dlamini, said she identifies as a “black woman” and that she’s “very proud of where I come from.” However, she has come under fire in the past for making fun of natural hair and saying that she preferred to date white men.

“I understand my influence and impact and I’m taking this all very seriously. I love you all and I’m sorry for upsetting or hurting any of you. That’s not my character, and I’m determined to show that to everybody moving forward. Thank you.” she ended.

Doja followed up with a live stream on Instagram where she further clarifies herself and the comments that she made in the chat room. 

Only time will tell if Doja Cat will be cancelled for good. One thing is for sure, her fans are not too pleased with her at the moment.
