Doja Cat Addresses Alleged Racist Remarks and Self-Hate Accusations in 30-Minute Video

After addressing her alleged racist remarks with a statement over the weekend, Doja Cat further defended herself on Instagram Live early Monday morning (May 25).

With hopes of quashing all claims made against her, most notably her 2015 track "Dindu Nuffin," Doja apologized for offending anyone with the song's creation.

"To anybody who I've hurt using this term when I used it, it's because I was in chat rooms all the time, and I was kind of locked away," she revealed during her Instagram Live. "I was always on there dealing with people coming at me left and right talking about different slanderous terms after another. The term that I used in the song is one that I learned that day. People were calling me that day left, and right and I used it in a song. It was to kind of take back and say 'f--k you to those people.' The song, however, I agree, maybe the worst song in the entire world."

Over the weekend, the "Dindu Nuffin" reemerged online, angering Twitter users who claimed that the record was mocking the death of Sandra Bland, a Black woman who died in police custody in 2015. The term coined "Dindu Nuffin" was often used to taunt Blacks who were victims of police brutality.

She then explained how the song was "in zero ways connected to police brutality or Sandra Bland and that "to see a song, my song that I made, connected to an innocent black woman's death is one of the most awful rumors that I've ever encountered."

Doja's lengthy explanation also entailed denying ever slandering Beyonce after social media users unearthed another video, where she referred to the singer as "Beyonkey.""Beyoncé is the cream of the crop," she said. "Beyoncé is the reason why I believe I can be who I am. Beyoncé is one of the driving forces of who I am in my career. Beyoncé is undeniably talented, and every time anyone has ever came for Beyoncé, I was there. And that's all I have to say."

In addition, she addressed her issues of self-hate after previously acknowledging her disgust for her hair type.

"A lot of my friends would agree, who have hair like mine that they have a hard time taking care of it. What I think that the mistake may have been that I made was saying it on a social platform [and] saying it out in public," she explained.

In another old video that resurfaced, she once said: "4C can suck my ass. 4C can bend over and lick my ass. Good luck trying to finger comb it. Good luck trying to put a wide-tooth through it the first couple of minutes. Jesus Christ. Why God was like, 'Lemme give her 4C hair just so that she can go bald.'"
