Doja Cat Is Already Under Fire: Old Tweets Resurface Of Her Using Derogatory Slang In 2015

– Blogged By: @carmen.roxanna

The newest viral sensation, Doja Cat, has been getting crazy attention since she dropped her newest video, #Mooo. In the internet’s usual fashion, old tweets were uncovered of Doja using some terminology some would find pretty offensive. 

In a tweet from July 20, 2015, Miss Cat called #TylerTheCreator and #EarlSweatshirt the infamous “f-word”. Since the tweet was discovered, she has received some serious backlash all over Twitter. 

In defense of her previous tweets, #DojaCat jumped on Twitter to issue a very interesting statement, tweeting, “I called a couple people f****ts when I was in high school in 2015 does this mean I don’t deserve support? I’ve said f****t roughly like 14 thousand times in my life. Does saying f****t mean you hate gay people? Do i hate gay people? I don’t think I hate gay people. Gay is ok.”

Needless to say, that response added fuel to the fire. Even #WillandGrace star, Debra Messing, came for Doja telling the young artist to use her platform for good. Messing tweeted, “SERIOUSLY, @DojaCat?! How can you be so ignorant?” She wrote. “Do know how many people you are hurting? Use your fame and platform for Good. It’s a privilege.”

Doja then issued the second of three apologies via #Twitter, apparently she just couldn’t get the words right to not further offend the people coming for her.

“I’ve used horrible derogatory and hateful words towards people out of ignorance. I just want you guys to know that you’re incredibly special and I hold you dearly to my heart. I’m sorry for anyone I’ve offended or hurt deeply. You all are worth of love and support. No one deserves to be discriminated against for their race, religion, or sexual orientation in any angle or sense. I don’t want you to look at me as a roll [sic] model. I just want you to hear my music and the joy that you take from that is the most important part. I love making music with you. Thank you for everything to this day.”

And when the backlash still didn’t subside, she wrote a final tweet on the issue, “I apologize for the derogatory terms I’ve used in the past and no one should be discriminated against for their race, religion, or sexual orientation I love you and I hope to make more great music with and for you in the future. Thank you.”
