It’s been a rough few days for Doja Cat. The “Say So” singer had been accused of spewing deeply offensive, racial remarks, which seemed to disparage parts of her mixed race ancestry. The matter intensified and folks on social media advocated for her cancellation with #DojaCatIsOverParty.
The hashtag began trending over the weekend after one of Doja’s songs resurfaced and new fans got a closer look at the old lyrics. The song, “Dindu Nuffin” came out in 2015 and mocked victims of police brutality — apparently, during that time, she had also enjoyed partaking in racist chat rooms.
And dindu nuffin is a DEEP cut of racism. You gotta dig deep in the depths of #father #husband #patriot twitter to reach dindu nuffin territory. Like if they dropped a Now That's What I Call Racism Vol 34 album you'd have to fast forward for 3:34 after the last track to get to it

DC, whose real name is Amalaratna Zandile Dlamini, has apologized to everyone she has offended, stating:
“As for the old song that’s resurfaced, it was in no way tied to anything outside of my own personal experience. It was written in response to people who often used that term to hurt me. I made an attempt to flip its meaning, but recognise that it was a bad decision to use the term in my music.”
Spoiler Alert: Folks ain’t buying it and now Doja KKKat is trending.
Im sorry she trying to make an excuse? Sorry miss did u just happen to stumble in some white supremacist KKK chat room by accident? I aint never seen someone get called by “my loose lady of the night” by some David Duke looking man and be that happy, no buying it

Doja KKKat was so embedded in the online racist community that she got a VIP sneak preview of the new line of slurs and was “reclaiming” them before the general release. That is KILLING ME 😭😭😭😭
