Singer Doja Cat is firing back at accusations she participated in racist chats rooms after videos leaked online.

The singer decided her original written apology wasn’t enough and went on Instagram live last night. She wanted to speak to her fans about the heat she’s facing after chat room videos leaked of her. In the videos, she appears to be talking to men who hurl racist slurs including the N-word.

Doja started the Live by saying, “"Like any business, like any conglomerate, there would be many people trying to protect what's going on. And that's exactly what we were trying to do. So I'm just gonna, one, debunk everything. I have bullet points."

She added, “I've seen tweets about me. It's a video, it's not even me. It's my friends helping me see through Twitter with a filter. I'm not on Twitter. That shit hurts my feelings. Seeing people come for me. Seeing people come for my character. Just like any of you guys, it wouldn't feel good to me so I avoid social media. My friends looked on social media and they told me what was going on. I know exactly what you guys are talking about as far as self-hate goes. I had a video of me talking about my hair. I have a lot of trouble taking care of my hair . . . A lot of my friends would agree who have hair like mine that they have a hard time taking care of it. What I think that the mistake may have been was saying it on a social platform, saying it out in public. Maybe being honest about how I feel about taking care of my hair was a bad idea."

She addressed the chat room videos saying, "The chat room that I go to is a public chat room. It's me, my friends. You go in there. Now you have to pay 30 dollars to get into the chat room, which is a new thing. But I used to go in there for free and I learned there are racist people who come in and out of the chat. They're there. They happen and then they're banned. The idea that this chat room is a white supremacist chat room is, I don't understand in any way. I just don't understand."

The Instagram video apology came after former fans have started to call for Doja to be “canceled.”

Doja originally wrote an apology reading, “I want to address what’s been happening on Twitter. I’ve used public chat rooms since I was a child. I shouldn’t have been on some of those chat room sits, but I personally have never been involved in any racist conversations. I’m sorry to everyone that I offended.”

She added, “I’m a black woman. Half of my family is black from South Africa and I’m very proud of where I come from. As for the old song that’s resurfaced, it was in no way tied to anything outside of my own personal experience. It was written in response to people who often used that term to hurt me.”

She ended, “I made an attempt to flip its meaning, but recognize that it was a bad decision to use the term in my music. I understand my influence and impact and I’m taking this all very seriously. I love you all and I’m sorry for upsetting or hurting any of you. That’s not my character, and I’m determined to show that to everybody moving forward. Thank you.”

One fan wrote, “Cackling at how Doja Cat has NEVER claimed South Africa except for when she’s facing backlash for being a racist and has to prove she’s BLACK black. Sksksksk.”

Another said, “#Dojacat going back to the racist chatrooms after making her apology on instagram #DojaIsOverParty #dojacatcancelled.”
