The controversy was started with the song titled "Dindu Nuffin" - the alt-right term used to disparage black (African-American) victims of police brutality. Doja Cat claimed that, though the song was meant to flip the meaning of the term, but now accepted now that it was a "bad decision".
Some allegations from people were about the lyrics referred to a black woman who died in police custody in Texas in 2015 named Sandra Bland, although Dlamini (Doja Cat) never mentioned the name of the victim in the song.
The signer further made a confession that she used the lyrics as a response to people who often used that term to hurt her. However, she now accepts it to be a "lyrically lost song" and also "maybe the worst song in the entire world", but said its 100% incorrect that the song is connected to police brutality or Sandra Bland"
