Again in 2015, Doja used the phrase “f****t” in some now-deleted tweets, and followers tweeted their disappointment about it. One particular person mentioned “wtf 🙁 is that this” with a screenshot of Doja calling Odd Future rappers Tyler, the Creator and Earl Sweatshirt “f****ts” in an previous tweet, to which Doja responded by writing “lmfaoooooo.”
After of us acquired pissed off at that response, she replied with a backhanded apology, utilizing the f phrase once more.
“I known as a few individuals f****ts after I was in highschool in 2015 does this imply I don’t deserve help?” she tweeted. “I’ve mentioned f****t roughly 15 thousand occasions in my life.

That preliminary response resulted in a significant on-line backlash over the best way she approached the state of affairs. Apologizing for using a slur whereas repeatedly utilizing mentioned slur is fairly counterproductive, tbh.

I can’t consider Doja Cat doesn’t perceive how saying the phrase f*ggot is offensive to the homosexual group. Cows are purported to be very clever animals.

Then, for some purpose, she deleted the apology for her first apology, and posted a 3rd, extra concise one:
