Kanye West has been terrorizing audiences around the world for years, and following in his unrequited love/musical hero Beyonce‘s illustrious footsteps, he was actually invited to headline this year’s Glastonbury Festival over in the UK this summer. The problem is… no one really seems to want him there. So badly do they desire his absence that a guy called Neil Lonsdale put together a petition to dis-invite him from the festival… and it’s been surprisingly successful.
As the petition states:
Kanye West is an insult to music fans all over the world. We spend hundreds of pounds to attend glasto, and by doing so, expect a certain level of entertainment.
Kanye has been very outspoken on his views on music….he should listen to his own advice and pass his headline slot on to someone deserving!
Lets prevent this musical injustice now!
At the moment, the petition has over 71,000 signatures. Will it have any effect? Eh, probably not, but wouldn’t it be amazing if it did? Kanye would no doubt unleash the most narcissistic rant of his entire career – a tall order, but I know he’s got it in him.
