It didn’t take long for attendees to react. Later that day, one music fan went on Change.org and created a petition to “Cancel Kanye West’s headline slot and get a rock band.”
You may be thinking, this is someone who’d rather see Radiohead, or this is a big Arctic Monkeys fan.
But the funny thing about the petition is that it doesn’t even ask for a specific band, just that Kanye be removed.
In fact, the entire thing is basically a slam on Yeezy, saying:
“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!”
Double ouch that as of this writing over 56,000 people have signed the petition already!
We’re guessing Glastonbury itself won’t actually give in to the request, but it can’t completely ignore it, especially if it reaches its intended 75,000 signatures.
We mean, Glastonbury only gets about 175k attendees a year, so that’s a pretty big faction that could potentially be skipping out on Saturday.
So should the fest try to make the fans happy and replace Kanye with Rock Band TBD?
What do YOU think??
