Doja Cat has once again responded to accusations of racism that have been brought against her.
The 24-year-old Say So hitmaker went to Instagram Live on Monday to post a 30-minute statement on the charges, after Sunday’s written apology.
One of the many points she raised was to deny the “counting for white supremacists” in an alleged chat room on the right.
Statement: Doja Cat has once again responded to accusations of racism that have been launched against her
In a video of an online conversation, the rapper – whose real name is Amalaratna Zandile Dlamini – can be seen lying on a bed with his legs apart while looking at the camera.
Later in the video, she suggestively sucks her fingers.
However, the Tarzana native vehemently denied that her actions were carried out in a chat room specifically for racists.
“There are racist people coming in and out of the cat,” conceded Doja Cat, who at some point can be heard using the word N, causing other participants to laugh.
“But the account that it is a white supremacist cat is completely incorrect,” she added.

The singer also doubled down saying that her recently discovered song Dindu Nuffin was “in no way linked to police violence or Sandra Bland”.
Some social media users said the song was aimed at Sandra Bland, a black woman who died in police custody in 2015.
“To see … my song I made in connection with the death of an innocent black woman is one of the most awful rumors I have ever encountered,” said the artist.
She claimed that the term racist was intended for her and that her song was an attempt to “pick up” the slur “and tell you *** to these people”.
“The song however, I agree, may be the worst song in the whole world”
‘Lyrically [it’s] lost. The lyrics of the song are meaningless.
“I can rewrite the lyrics for you, I don’t know how important it is,” she offered.

The Say So singer also raised a controversy in which she was linked to a song that appeared to make fun of police brutality.
The song – supposedly from 2015 – is titled Dindu Nuffin, which is said to be a racist term used by the alt-right to refer to people of color who claim to be innocent after being subjected to police violence. (She sang on the track: ‘How much nothing can make a turkey / If a turkey, nothing turkey’ / How much money could a turkey earn / If a turkey did everything you want. ‘)

“I tried to reverse her meeting, but I admit it was a bad decision to use the term in my music. “

This is not the first time that Doja has been criticized for her past remarks, as she faced a backlash in 2018 for some tweets resurfacing.
She allegedly used homophobic insults against members of Odd Future Tyler, the creator and Earl Sweatshirts in a tweet since deleted. Artist Go To Town defended herself on Twitter: “I called two people to fuck when I was in high school in 2015, does that mean I don’t deserve support?”
“I said f **** t about 15 thousand times in my life. Does saying f **** t mean you hate gays? Do I hate homosexuals? I don’t think I hate gays. Gay is ok.
After it sparked even more violent reactions, she said in another statement, “I used horrible derogatory and hateful words towards people out of ignorance.

This week, she also participated in part of the Lana Del Rey controversy, after artist Summertime Sadness was herself accused of racism.
Lana tweeted: “Now that Doja Cat, Ariana, Camila, Cardi B, Kehlani and Nicki Minaj and Beyoncé have had numbers with songs about being sexy, not wearing clothes, kissing, cheating , etc. – can i please go back to singing to be 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 glorify abuse ?????? ‘
This sparked controversy when she seemed to compare her fight primarily with artists of color, but has since said, “I love these singers and I know them. “
Doja replied to Lana in a quickly deleted tweet that said, “A gang sank this dunker.”
Although no one seems to know what the expression means, she can also be heard using it in her now infamous alt-right discussion group.
Since deleting the tweet, she changed her Twitter name to “GANG?” And tweeted: ‘Gang ______________. (Complete it) ’
