Doja Cat Says She Contracted COVID-19 Months After She Said She Wasn't 'Scared' of the Virus



She made headlines again in May after critics called her out for using a racist slur in the title of a resurfaced 2015 song.

"I want to address what’s been happening on Twitter," Doja Cat wrote on her Instagram. "I’ve used public chat rooms to socialize since I was a child. I shouldn’t have been on some of those chat room sites, but I personally have never been involved in any racist conversations. I’m sorry to everyone I offended."

The star added, "I am a black woman. Half of my family is black from South Africa and I'm very proud of where I come from."
