Thousands have signed a petition to ban Kanye from playing Glastonbury
Because the Clarkson one worked so well.

LAST NIGHT, KANYE West was announced as the Pyramid Stage headliner at this year’s Glastonbury Festival.

The hip-hop artist, who yesterday inspired a new meme, will headline the Saturday night at the music festival. He joins Foo Fighters on the bill, who will perform on the Friday night.

The news has elicited a mixed reaction.

On the one hand, many festival goers are excited/jealous.

While others were fuming.

Now, some displeased fans have gotten it together to form a petition to prevent West from performing at the festival.

The petition implored festival organisers to “cancel Kanye West’s headline slot and get a rock band”.

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.

The petition has so far attracted 1,314 signatures and a ream of angry comments.

Kayne is the worst musician ever. Without his autotune he’d be selling pencils on the street.
Hes rubbish and glastonburys about rock bands
He is a waste of money and human skin

The petition itself has also been subject to ridicule on Twitter.

We don’t think that people are looking on the bright side — if Kanye performs at Glasto, Kim is definitely going to have to schlep through the mud at some point.

And that, our friends, will be a sight to behold.
