For The Record: Should Doja Cat Be Canceled?

Last week, footage of Doja Cat in a reportedly racist, alt-right TinyChat room surfaced online. In addition, internet sleuths unearthed an old Doja Cat song from 2015 called “Dindu Nuffin,” which some say makes light of police brutality. She apologized in a written statement on Instagram and denied taking part in “racist conversations.” She then addressed the accusations in a lengthy IG Live. On the latest episode of ‘For The Record,’ Genius’ VP of Content Strategy Rob Markman dove into the complicated issue with HuffPost Black Voices editor Taryn Finley, culture writer Ivie Ani, and music writer Kiana Fitzgerald. The panel broke down the complex issues at play, Doja Cat’s connection to internet culture, and discussed whether or not the star should be “canceled.”
