Doja Cat is addressing the controversy surrounding her supposed friendship with White supremacists with a series of tweets on her account. She has denied such claims on several occasions, beginning with a lengthy apology she shared on her Instagram page, but is holding firm in her stance against them "because I'm standing up for myself because I know what the truth is."

The music industry is notably hard on artistes for how they present themselves, and sometimes the public is harder as every action is scrutinized. Cancel culture is on the rise and, humanly-speaking, is unfair for the most part. In short, cancel culture should get canceled. Doja Cat has had a bitter taste of this herself when the hashtag DojaCatIsOverParty began trending on Twitter and her career has since taken an evident knock.

The bi-racial hip-hop artiste took to her social media on Tuesday, July 21 to address these issues, fire back at the hypocrisy of the accusations, and reinforce her beliefs. "Remember when people said I was black when I had a #1 along side 3 other black women but now the same people wanna say I'm white? Maybe I'm not the one here with "identity issues". :)" she wrote on Twitter.

Her statement drew further hounding from many users with one, in particular, getting Doja to fire back with a heated reply. "Stop trying to make us forget what u did," a user wrote before deleting the tweet. "I'm just trying to make sure you remember who the f**k you're talking to, coward," Doja replied.

Doja also slammed another user for what seems to be an additional negative remark on her alleged friendship with White supremacists. "In what world do you think a gang of white supremacists would hang out with a black person? Just ACTUALLY THINK about what you just said," she said. Both the user and her comment have also been deleted.

Regardless of the negative comments, it is clear that Doja isn't letting trolls tarnish her name and is now deciding to hold fast onto "the truth." Doja then explained in a followup tweet why she removed her response, saying, "Deleted my last tweet because someone brought up a very valid point about it. My response was that I'm standing up for myself because I know what the truth is."
