Viral Rap Artist Doja Cat Posts Weird Tweet About Regularly Using Gay Slurs

Most people know American singer Doja Cat because of her recent rap video “Mooo!” in which she, dressed in cow print clothing, sticks French fries up her nose and repeatedly sings, “Bitch, I’m a cow. / I go mooo!” (The music video has gotten over 9 million views since it was posted barely three weeks ago). But for some reason, the artist decided to tell Twitter that she has said the word faggot “roughly 15 thousand times,” though she clarified that she doesn’t hate gay people. Well … thanks?

In a now-deleted tweet posted yesterday, Doja Cat wrote, “I called a couple of people faggots when I was in high school in 2015. Does this mean I don’t deserve support? I’ve said faggot roughly 15 thousand times in my life. Does saying faggot mean you hate people? Do I hate gay people? I don’t think I hate gay people. Gay is ok.”

It’s a weird and needless admission for the young rapper who dropped her first full album in March 2018 and has a U.S. tour scheduled for this September and October.

Even though Doja Cat is primarily known for her weird cow video, she has a 13-track album called Amala which sadly doesn’t contain the song “Mooo!” but does include “Go To Town,” a similarly repetitive song with a much better produced music video.

Here is the video for Doja Cat’s “Mooo!”:

Granted, Doja Cat is hardly the first female rap artist to own up to using anti-gay slurs. More notorious is bisexual rapper Azealia Banks who, during June 2016, promised never to say the word “faggot” again after lobbing it at a Delta Airlines flight attendant, gay blogger Perez Hilton and former One Direction member Zayn Malik  The Born and Bred Festival dropped her from their line-up after she publicly insulted Malik, saying, “We celebrate inclusivity and equality.”
