Over the weekend, Doja Cat was canceled on social media due to her being on Tinychat with white supremacists and stripping for them. She also recorded a song in 2015 titled “Dindu Nuffin” which was was believed to have mocked police brutality victims. Doja explained in an Instagram statement that people used that term to hurt her but she tried to “flip its meaning.” She also finally took pride in being black as she mentioned her South African heritage.
“I understand my influence and impact and I’m taking this all very seriously,” Doja said. “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.”
Doja just now went on IG Live in the early hours of Tuesday morning as she explained the Tinychat situation. She mentioned how it’s a public chatroom and how there are racist people in and out of there but end up getting banned. She also denied it being a white supremacist chatroom and doesn’t understand why that’s the case.
Doja went on to acknowledge that there is more racism on Tinychat than any other social media app because it’s less monitored. She also explained how she did try to take back the Dindu Nuffin meaning and that her lyrics did not make sens. Check out Doja speaking on the accusations along, the Instagram statement, speaking on Dindu Nuffin and her on Tinychat below.
