    Doja Cat recently celebrated her first Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 hit with her single Say So, featuring Nicki Minaj.

    But the native Angeleno is currently making headlines for all the wrong reasons, amid her rise to fame.

    She’s found herself in hot water with fans over a recently resurfaced video chat, in which she allegedly interacted with an alt-right community, as well as contributing to a song that appeared to mock police brutality.

    The 24-year-old can be seen in a Tinychat video that began circulating Friday, reportedly featuring an alt-right/incel group.

    After the video surfaced, fans dug up one of her songs believed to be from 2015, entitled Dindu Nuffin.

    The title is allegedly a racist term used by the alt-right in reference to people of color who claim to be innocent after facing police brutality.

    She sings on the track: ‘How much nothing can a dindu do / If a dindu, dindu nothin’ / How much money could a dindu make / If a dindu did all the things that you wish to.’

    She’s cancelled: Accusations of her alleged history of racism has resulted in the hashtag ‘#DojaIsOverParty’ which is now trending on Twitter

    Some believe that the song was targeted at Sandra Bland, a black woman who died in police custody in 2015.

    Accusations of her alleged history of racism has resulted in the hashtag ‘#DojaIsOverParty’ which is now trending on Twitter.

    It’s not Doja’s first time coming under fire for her past remarks, as she faced backlash in 2018 for some resurfaced tweets.

    She allegedly used homophobic slurs against Odd Future members Tyler, the Creator and Earl Sweatshirts in a since-deleted tweet.

    The Go To Town artist defended herself on Twitter: ‘I called a couple of people f****ts when I was in high school in 2015 does this mean I don’t deserve support?

    ‘I’ve said f****t roughly 15 thousand times in my life. Does saying f****t mean you hate gay people? Do I hate gay people? I don’t think I hate gay people. Gay is ok.’

    After that ignited even more backlash, she said in another statement: ‘I’ve used horrible derogatory and hateful words towards people out of ignorance.

    ‘I just want you guys to know that you’re incredibly special and I hold you dearly to my heart. I’m sorry for anyone I’ve offended or hurt deeply. You all are worth love and support.’

    This week, she also got involved in some of Lana Del Rey’s controversy, after the Summertime Sadness artist was herself accused of racism.

    Lana tweeted: ‘Now that Doja Cat, Ariana, Camila, Cardi B, Kehlani and Nicki Minaj and Beyoncé have had number ones with songs about being sexy, wearing no clothes, fucking, cheating etc – can I please go back to singing about being embodied, feeling beautiful by being in love even if the relationship is not perfect, or dancing for money – or whatever I want – without being crucified or saying that I’m glamorizing abuse??????’

    It sparked controversy as she appeared to compare her struggle mostly with artists of color, but she has since clarified: ‘I f***ing love these singers and know them.’

    Doja responded to Lana in a tweet that was quickly deleted, which read: ‘Gang sunk that dunker.’

    Although nobody seems to know what the phrase means, she can also be heard using it in her now infamous alt-right group chat.

    Since deleting the tweet, she’s changed her Twitter name to ‘GANG?’ and has tweeted: ‘Gang ______________. (Complete it)’
