GIRL, WHAT?: The Internet is Calling to Cancel Doja Cat As #DojaCatIsOverParty Trends Following Allegations of Being Anti-Black & Having Racist History
23.05.20

It seems like Doja Cat was just invited to the party but the internet is quickly suggesting she be thrown from the cookout with the hashtag “DojaCatIsOverParty” via Twitter.

Doja Cat has been riding high even scoring her first number one hit recently with “Say So,” however on course with the cancel culture that seems to run rampant through these sensitive times, Doja’s behaviors behind the scenes and online has the internet calling for her to be canceled for what they’re calling her “racist history.” Apparently one problem is that Doja likes to frequent TinyChat groups in her free time, Tinychat is an online chat website that allows users to communicate via instant messaging, voice chat, and video chat—some people stated that this is new hobby of hers— regardless of her celebrity status. According to people who have watched the singer in these chat rooms, Doja has formed online friendships with people who are reportedly known to be alt-righters, racist, and “incels” (misogynistic men who treat women poorly). Videos of Doja Cat in these chats began to circulate with her entertaining and chucking it up with the weirdos as they made racist comments.

The allegation that Doja frequents the racist chatroom was originally brought to light via the message board website Lipstickalley. The user was in incognito mode leading the charge and raising concerns about the singer’s online behavior. “Rooms like this (Tea Time) are culturally racist,” the user posted to the board. “She goes on for hours at a time…they often say racist things and she jokes along. It’s pathetic to watch,” also citing that the “Moo” rapper had allegedly admitted to hating her blackness, and only liking her “thick” and “lightskin” features.

To make things worse, other users brought attention to a problematic song title released by the artist called “Dindu Nuffin,” a slang that people say is typically used by racists to poke fun at victims of police brutality and simultaneously diminish African-American Vernacular English. “F*ck if the tweets of her being racist are real or not, do y’all hear this song? That’s enough for me,” user @ zaminzo2 wrote via Twitter. Many on Twitter believe the song was a response to the death of Sandra Bland. “Doja cat’s “dindu nuffin” song is about Sandra Bland? That b*tch gotta go fr. Are you f*cking serious?” one user tweeted.

“It appears to me that the lyrics aren’t racially insensitive in any way and the way she uses dindu is like how Jay Z did in story of OJ. Basically painting herself as the dindu,” @JayPicante tweeted. The news of Doja’s alleged racial insensitivity took Twitter by storm, especially after Lana Del Rey was recently called out for a post which appeared to attack Black women artists. “Lana Del Rey and Doja Cat getting exposed for being racist within 24 hours,” @_derekestrada tweeted along with the hashtag #dojacatisoverparty. Take a look at most of the receipts and reactions below. Do you find Doja’s behaviors problematic? Is she cancelled for you?
