Doja explanation comes just days after she was the No. 1 trending topic on Twitter via the hashtag #DojaCatIsOverParty when a video was discovered that shows Doja in an online chatroom with reported members of the alt-right/incel community.

Doja Cat's song "Dindu Nuffin" was released in 2015, but resurfaced after Hollywood Unlocked revealed a video reportedly showing the singer with an alt-right incel group on the video chat platform Tinychat.

Couple that with the fact that Doja is in a relationship with a white man, it's become one very big problematic gumbo for most observers.

Doja Cat said that she is half-Black, with her family hailing from South Africa, and she is very proud of her heritage.

Doja, who is usually quite active on social media, has been largely silent in the wake of these news items coming to the forefront.

Doja Cat has weathered many, many controversies across her career, ever since her breakout song 'Mooo!' went viral in 2018.

We've got some of those reactions below.

Her song "Dindu Nuffin" - a term used to describe victims of police brutality - also surfaced online.

It looks like her fanbase is dwindling in numbers as people are beginning to jump ship and you can likely count super-producer Metro Boomin among that group.

As for the resurfaced track, Doja Cat claimed "it was in no way tied to anything outside of my own personal experience".

"I would actually take Doja cat seriously if not for the fact that she was seen in this chat less than 6 days ago".

"It was written in response to people who often used that term to hurt me", she continued. According to the 24-year-old artist, her intention was to "flip" the meaning of the word but admitted that it was a "bad decision" on her part. I love you all and I'm sorry for upsetting or hurting any of you. "That's not my character, and I'm determined to show that everybody moving forward".

Doja Cat turned the comments off on the post, preventing people from commenting on it.
