Doja Cat went on Instagram Live last night (25 May) to apologise to those she has offended and to address the racism allegations that caused the #DojaIsOverParty hashtags on Twitter last week.
Last Friday (23 May), #DojaCatIsOverParty was trending on Twitter. An old song of hers from 2015 - titled "Dindu Nuffin" - had resurfaced. The title is a racial slur, and on top of that there were also multiple allegations of Doja Cat taking part in racist video calls on Tinychat.
Yesterday (24 May), the "Say So" singer/rapper responded to the allegations with a statement on Instagram. In the statement, she writes, "I've used public chat rooms to socialise 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."
Last night (25 May), Doja Cat decided to address the whole situation during an Instagram in a hope to "debunk everything". She goes on to address "self-hate" and her hair, before moving on to discuss the "Dindu Nuffin" song. She calls the track "Maybe the worst song in the entire world" and says it was "lyrically lost". She also discusses the chat room allegations, and says it was a "public chat room" that had "racist people coming in and out of the chat".
Doja Cat also plays numerous clips of attemped apologies that she recorded, before saying, "There’s no better apology than me doing what I’ve always done, being on Live, telling you guys my fucking truth and being completely honest. It’s a hard time right now, but recording myself apologising and recording myself sounding perfectly diplomatic is the biggest fucking lie I can make to you."
She added, "My behaviour isn’t something that always needs to be followed, I’m not perfect — I shouldn’t be doing dumb shit. But also I need to stand up for myself instead of making a video that’s diplomatically and politically correct."
