The famous singer responded Sunday to the Twitter hashtag #DojaCatIsOverParty. Hash appeared after a song released in 2015 titled “Dindu Nuffin” reappeared.
The title song refers to the racist slur used to mock victims of police brutality.
There are also claims that Doja Cat has participated in online racist conversations and she posted a statement on Instagram Sunday that began “I want to discuss what happened on Twitter.”
“I have been using public chat rooms to socialize since I was a child,” the 24-year-old singer said. “I shouldn’t have been on those chatroom sites, but I personally have never been involved in racist conversations. I apologize to everyone I offended.”
He also noted that she was “a black woman” and wrote “Half of my family are black from South Africa and I am very proud of where I come from.”
Doja Cat took responsibility for writing and recording the controversial song, but said “it has nothing to do with anything outside my personal experience.”
“It was written in response to people who often use the term to hurt me,” the statement said. “I tried to reverse its meaning, but realized that it was a bad decision to use the term in my music.”
