Dindu Nuffin is a racist pejorative term that originated on /pol/ to mock and criticize Black people during the Black Lives Matter following the acquittal of George Zimmerman in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, a Black teenager, and the killing of Michael Brown, an unarmed Black teenager who was killed by police.


"Dindu nuffin" is derived from a phonetic spelling of the phrase "didn't do nothing," a plea of innocence often used in reference to unarmed Black men killed by police. One of the most famous instances of the usage of this phrase can be found in a comic. Detractors often use "dindu nuffins" to refer to sympathizers of the black community.

The phrase originated on /pol/ [1] around August 2014, during the riots in Ferguson, Missouri started as a response to the shooting of Michael Brown (shown below)..

Doja Cat Controversy

On November 2nd, 2015, rapper Doja Cat posted the song "Dindu Nuffin" on Soundcloud. [2] The chorus features the phrase in the chorus several time:

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
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

In 2020, the song, along with videos of Doja Cat in an alleged white-supremacist TinyChat chatroom called "Tea Time," resurfaced. On May 22nd, 2020, Twitter[3] user @bigdavis813 tweeted the lyrics with the caption, "This wild…" The tweet received more than 6,200 likes and 1,200 retweets in less than one year (shown below).

It usually references claims of innocence made by family members and friends, and is a bastardization of "didn't do nothing" which is meant to mock AAVE. The phrase originated on 4chan on the "politically incorrect" or "/pol/" message board in 2014, where it was used to make fun of defenders of Michael Brown, an unarmed African American man who was fatally shot by police in Ferguson, Missouri. Since then, it has been most commonly associated with and used by the alt-right. 11:00 PM - May 22. 2020 - Twitter for iPhone

She later apologized for the video and the song. She said of "Dindu Nuffin":

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
