#Dojacatisoverparty start trending after Dojo Cat was accused of making racist remarks in an online chat room.
This comes just days after Twitter ‘cancelled’ Lana Del Ray for her song lyrics, and it appears Doja Cat was next, after a song from several years ago resurfaced.
Doja has since issued an apology on Instagram, and cleared up the chat room rumours as well as addressing her controversial song, ‘Dindu Nuffin’.
But when was ‘Dindu Nuffin’ released and what are the lyrics?
When was Dindu Nuffin released?
Doja Cat’s song ‘Dindu Nuffin’ was released in 2015, but resurfaced after Hollywood Unlocked revealed a video reportedly showing the singer with an alt-right incel group on the video chat platform Tinychat.
The lyrics of song’s chorus include:
“How much nothing can a dindu do / If a dindu, dindu nothin’ / How much money could a dindu make / If a dindu did all the things that you wish to.”
Fans tweeted that ‘Dindu Nuffin’ is an: “alt-right racist thing” and Pink News wrote:
“The phrase ‘Dindu Nuffin’ a stylised pronunciation of ‘didn’t do nothing’, is used by racist alt-right groups to mock Black victims of police brutality.”
How did Doja Cat apologise?
Doja posted an apology on her Instagram, stating that the song was: “In no way tied to anything outside of my own personal experience”.
She went on to explain:
“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 that term in my music.”
