Doja Cat Cancelled On Twitter Over "Dindu Nuffin Song, Alleged Racism"

It appears that Doja Cat may have been in a TinyRooms chat room with white supremacist incels and denouncing her blackness to everyone in the chat. Now, in an Instagram statement, she has distanced herself from those "chat rooms".

"I want to address what's been happening on Twitter", she wrote in the statement.

Doja ended her message by apologizing to her fans for hurting them with her past racial remarks. Since Friday, fans have been slamming Doja Cat for the "Dindu Nuffin" track and for her odd embrace of the alt-white. This all led to fans accusing her of being anti-black and "canceling" the "Say So" crooner through the #DojaCatIsOverParty hashtag on Twitter.

This past weekend, many people on internet exploded over her past racial remarks and canceled the rapper.

In between mixing sessions with 21 Savage for the highly-anticipated Savage Mode 2 album, Young Metro chose to chime in on the Doja Cat controversy, cracking a joke about her on his personal page. "Half of my family is black from South Africa and I'm very proud of where I come from", she continued.

A 2015 song of hers titled "Dindu Nuffin" was dug up and she's being accused of mocking police brutality. "I made an attempt to flip its meaning, but recognise that it was a bad decision to use that term in my music".

However, on Sunday morning (May 24), one person from the alleged chat group spoke up for Doja, claiming he didn't see or hear any prejudice or racism from her. That's not my character, and I'm determined to show that to everyone moving forward.

Doja Cat responded with a comment on the post, writing (then deleting) "gang sunk that dunker", which no, isn't a reference to anything, but was widely understood to celebrate Lana's impending "cancellation". There's also a vide where Doja is seen as a member of a chat full of alt-right members as well. "U can't change that fast my love so with no respect at all f*ck off", said another.
