For days, Black Twitter has been pushing for the cancelation of Doja Cat with the hashtag #DojaIsOverParty. This comes after a video surfaces where she is in a chat with alleged racists.
On Sunday, she took to Instagram to address these claims.
In part, she wrote:
” I want to address what’s been happening on Twitter,” she first stated. “I’ve used public chat rooms sites, but I have personally never been involved in any racist conversations,” she added.
She continued, “I’m a Black woman. Half of my family is Black from South Africa, and I’m very proud of where I come from South Africa and I’m very proud of where I come from.
“As far as the old songs that resurfaced, it was in no way tied to anything outside of my own personal experiences,” she stated. It was written in response to people who often used that term to hurt me,” she explained.
“I understand my influence and impact. I’m taking this all very seriously. I love all and I’m sorry for upsetting or hurting any of you. That’s not my character, ” she expressed. And I’m determined to show that to everybody moving forward. Thank you,” the 24-year-old wrote.
Doja just landed her first #1 on Billboard with her Say So Remix, featuring Nicki Minaj. According to reports, this is the first time two women dominated that spot. In 2014, Iggy Azalea’s “Fancy” featuring Charli XCX held that spot from June-July of 2014.
