Just a few days ago, Doja Cat‘s fans were coming to her defense after Lana Del Rey name-dropped her and several other female artists in a poorly-received open letter about double standards that exist within the music industry.
However, the swift and stern backlash Lana faced quickly pivoted to the 24-year-old rapper for her own controversial comments that have recently surfaced and sparked the #DojaCatIsOverParty hashtag online Friday. What the heck happened here?!
Social media users were stunned to see alleged video evidence of Doja engaging in a discussion with mostly white men in a TinyChat message forum, reportedly captured only six days ago. It has been said the group was made for men in the alt-right, white supremacist community, so, many were understandably shocked the Black entertainer was at all involved! Ch-ch-check out the clips gathered by Hollywood Unlocked (below):
Additionally, receipts of the singer (real name is Amalaratna Zandile Dlamini) condoning the use of hurtful gay slurs before she was famous was also unearthed!
Yikes… not a good look at ALL! As we mentioned, this was all drugged up just as people were going to bat for the star whose smash hit, Say So, recently earned a #1 spot on the Billboard charts and a nod from rapper Nicki Minaj on the remix. She was starting to garner a real buzz and recognition from her peers (except for Lana, of course!) in the industry.
But if you can believe it, things only got worse from there. Doja Cat saw a rise in popularity over the last year so new fans might’ve missed her old 2015 track, Dindu Nuffin. However, the song also came under scrutiny in light of her comments because for those unaware, the title is actually a racial slur used to describe people of color who’ve committed crimes and the excuses they come up with for them.
As Doja’s past remarks came to light, fans began to share their own comments and receipts about the situation like this tweet (below), full of “info” this activity wasn’t a one-time occurrence for the star:
And more continued sharing their disappointment in her behavior:
As we touched on earlier, many called LDR racist for criticizing Doja, among others, for their chart-topping success on IG, writing:
“Now that Doja Cat, Ariana , Camila , Cardi B, Kehlani and Nicki Minaj and Beyoncé have had number ones with songs about being sexy, wearing no clothes, f**king, cheating, etc – can I please go back to singing about being embodied, feeling beautiful by being in love even if the relationship is not perfect, or dancing for money – or whatever i want – without being crucified or saying that I’m glamorising abuse???????”
Now, it seems, both women are on their way to being canceled! Right when the starlet was surely on her way to doing even more big things in the music scene…
Doja has yet to address the recent backlash but we want to know, what do U make of this, Perezcious readers? Is this something her career can bounce back from and should it??
Sound OFF in the comments!
