On Saturday, #DojaIsOverParty was trending on Twitter after allegations that singer Doja Cat had made racist comments in a right-wing online chat room.
SAY IT AINT SO! Hold up! ð¤ð¼After coming under fire for using homophobic slurs, #DojaCat is trending AGAIN! ð¤¦ð»ââï¸ This time over video chats which resurfaced online showing her engaging in racists calls. #Doja we need answers ð¡ðð¼
Yet by Sunday, people started to apologize when they realized that some of the posts alleging she made those racist remarks didn’t actually contain any evidence that she actually did what she was being accused of.
The song title is actually a racial slur used by the alt-right members for people of colour who state their innocence after being victims of police brutality.
Another report suggests Doja made fun of the 2015 murder of Sandra Bland, who died while in police custody.
Here’s a sampling of how Twitter users have been reacting the quick cancellation/uncancellation on social media:
