Black Twitter's cancel culture upended Doja Cat's career overnight. The 24-year-old L.A. native saw her career evaporate into thin air after video leaked that showed her chatting with white supremacists.
In the video, the biracial singer is seen flirting with the white men in an alt-right chat room. At one point she blurts out "ni**er" while the men laugh. Doja, whose mother is Jewish-American, seemed comfortable using racial slurs.
After the clip began making the rounds online, fans also dug up one of her songs, believed to be from 2015, entitled "Dindu Nuffin" - which is known to be a racial slur for Black criminals, who claim to be innocent after facing police brutality.
She sings on the track: "How much nothing can a dindu do / If a dindu, dindu nothin' / How much money could a dindu make / If a dindu did all the things that you wish to."
Some believe that the song was targeted at Sandra Bland, a Black woman who died in police custody in 2015.
Doja responded to the backlash late Sunday night. Some say her explanation is too little, too late.
Question: Do you forgive Doja, or is she still canceled?

New England draft pick Justin Rohrwasser denies he is a white supremacist or that a tattoo on his left arm is a white supremacist logo.
Rohrwasser said he got the tattoo inked when he was 14. The tattoo is of the Roman numeral 3 surrounded by a ring of stars. It is the logo of a right-wing organization called "Three Percenters."
He also has the phrase "Don't tread on me" tatted on his left forearm. The phrase is associated with conservative groups such as the Tea Party.
Looking back, he says he wished he had done more research into the tattoo. He agreed to cover it up when he's on the field.
"It's not something I ever want to represent, so it will be covered."
That wasn't good enough for sports journalist and Twitter activist Jemele Hill who called the NFL kicker out on Twitter.com.
Hill took to Twitter to complain about the tattoo, saying: "Patriots kicker is a white supremacist. My bad, he tends to like white supremacist things. Carry on, nothing to see here."
