Is the F Word Offensive? Rapper Doja Cat Is Wondering

Answer: YES. IT IS.

Internet personality Amalaratna "Amala" Zandile Dlamini, better known by her stage name Doja Cat, has come under fire after using the homophobic gay slur "faggot."

The drama started when fans found some of Doja's old tweets from 2015, where she used the f-word against American rapper Tyler, the Creator. 

After Twitter users exposed her past homophobia, Doja Cat—the viral mastermind behind that painfully unfunny "Mooo!" song that you've probably seen all over the internet—tried to apologize, but in her now-deleted apology, she used the slur again. Multiple times.

"I called a couple people faggots when I was in high school in 2015 does this mean I don’t deserve support?" she said on Twitter on Tuesday.

Naturally, her half-baked "apology" ruffled some feathers.

A quick note for everyone: unless you are queer and have reclaimed the slur for yourself, you should not be using the word "faggot." At all.
