Doja Cat is speaking out following all of the controversy she has been receiving over her questionable online activity. More inside…

Doja Cat has been getting dragged on social media over assumptions that she has been popping in on racist white chat groups. And also, the title of a song - "Dindu Nuffin” – which apparently is a racial slur used against black people faced police brutality.

Basically, folks were trying to cancel her on social media for her alleged actions.

The “Say So” singer hopped on social media to the first to address the controversy:

 

 

“I’m a black woman,” she wrote. “Half of my family is black from South Africa and I’m very proud of where I come from,” she said.

Doja Cat - who is biracial - also addressed the title of the song in question:

"As for the old song that’s resurfaced, it was in no way tied to anything outside of my own personal experience. It was written in response to people who often used that term to hurt me. I made an attempt to flip its meaning, but recognize that it was a bad decision to use the term in my music," she continued.

Peep her full response above.

The "Like That" singer - whose "Say So" remix with Nicki Minaj recently reached No. 1 on the Billboard charts - also hopped on IG Live his afternoon to explain herself more. And she probably shouldn't have.

In her social media video, she explained how she has always been a frequent visitor of video chat sites and that the room she was caught in wasn't a racist group. Yes, racist people would come in the group, but she claims they would get banned.

As for the song "Dindu Nuffin," she explained the title had nothing to do with Sandra Bland or any black person who lost their life due to police brutality.

"It was in no way tied to anything outside of my own personal experience. It was written in response to people who often used that term to hurt me. I made an attempt to flip its meaning, but recognize that it was a bad decision to use the term in my music."

"My behavior isn't something that always needs to be followed," she said in the video, also noting that her apology note was "an edited piece" workshopped by herself and her team. "I'm not perfect. At the end of the day, 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." She mentioned how she tried to record multiple apology videos (and even played clips of them) before opting for "being on Live, telling you guys my fucking truth, and being completely honest."
