Twitter has been trying to cancel Doja Cat ever since videos of her hanging and doing sexual things in "racist incel" chatrooms emerged.

In addition, there was increased scrutiny of her 2015 track "Dindu Nuffin", which takes its title from an alt-right term for black victims of police violence. (Sound it out.)

After a few days of silence, Doja addressed the controversies.

“I want to address what’s been happening on Twitter.

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 that I offended.

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. 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.”

Do you think that's enough?  As much as Twitter is gunning for her, she still does have some support:
