Rapper Doja Cat has been ‘cancelled’ by social justice warriors after it was revealed that years ago she had participated in right-wing chat rooms and had made an early single titled ‘Dindu Nuffin’.
The buxom Doja Cat, whose real name is Amalaratna Zandile Dlamini, recently rode to global fame on her 2020 single ‘Say So’ featuring Nicki Minaj, which hit number 1 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 charts, and currently holds the number 2 position.
However, prior to her stardom, it was revealed she made sexual remarks towards white men in a right-wing “redpill” Tinychat video chat room, where Doja Cat, who is half-black, is also accused of laughing at “racist” jokes and using the “hard R” n-word. The room has been described as “alt right” and “incel” by the media.
“She use to show her dildo on cam,” wrote another participant in the chat room on Twitter.
One of the leaked clips shows Doja writhing on a bed suggestively and making sexual moans, while calling the white men in the group “daddy”.
“Would you feed a tube into my asshole and pour all types of liquor down there?” Doja asks another individual in the chat in a second leaked clip, before going on to describe it as “so hot”.
Not long after the clips were leaked, her 2015 song ‘Dindu Nuffin’ went viral. The song features the following lyrics:
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
The phrase ‘dindu nuffin’ refers to a popular meme about arrested African-American individuals claiming they did not commit crimes that they in fact did commit.
Doja Cat has a non-celebrity white boyfriend, who woke Twitter personalities bizarrely accused of being an “incel” purely for being white and relatively unattractive.
“Doja has given us so many chances to cancel her … Her boyfriend is white and likely an incel as well,” wrote New York pan-Africanist Simi Moonlight.
Critics also pointed to an Instagram post by her, which they claimed was evidence she was a self-hating racist.
“Thinking about being Black can make any sensible person depressed,” Doja Cat wrote. “Like just think about it wouldn’t being White make soo much more sense? Life would have value.”
Doja Cat issued a statement Monday on the controversy, denying accusations of racism.
“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,” she wrote on Instagram.
“As for the old song that’s resurfaced, it was in no way tied to anything outside of my own personal experience. It was made in response to people who often used that term to hurt me. I made an attempt to flip its meaning,” she added.
Doja previously caused controversy after a 2015 tweet of her mocking homosexual rapper Tyler The Creator emerged. Years later, she defended her remarks.
“I called a couple people faggots when I was in high school in 2015 does this mean I don’t deserve support? I’ve said faggot roughly like 15 thousand times in my life,” she told Paper Magazine during a 2019 interview. “Does saying faggot mean you hate gay people? I don’t think I hate gay people.”
She went on to claim in the same interview that she “like[d] to disappoint woke hip-hop people”, and clarified that was not political.
She also referenced the chat room, where she admitted to making off-color jokes as part of “light-hearted play-fighting”.
“I became the person who would make offensive jokes and do things sort of out of the box,” she said.
