Over 5,000 People Sign Petition for Kanye to Be Removed From Coachella
There is a new petition on Change.org calling for Kanye West's removal from the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. The petition was published on March 17 amid Ye’s 24-hour Instagram ban for violating the platform’s bullying and harassment policies.
Those who have been following Kanye's recent antics have seen the 44-year-old rapper go after his ex-wife Kim Kardashian, her new boyfriend Pete Davidson, comedian D.L. Hughley, The Daily Show host Trevor Noah, numerous media outlets and Saturday Night Live guest writer Dave Sirus.
“We have watched Kanye harass, manipulate, and hurt Kim, Pete, and others for over a year now,” the description. “No one seems to want to stand up to him, and the ones that do, he puts under fire as well. Most recently, he has been threatening actual bodily harm on others.”
“This is ridiculous that he is allowed to freely do this. Coachella (along with other brand names that are still working with him) should be ashamed of themselves and should not be giving him any more of a platform.”
Coachella takes place in Indio, California, on April 15-17 and April 22-24 at the Empire Polo Club. Kanye West (officially billed as Ye), Harry Styles and Swedish House Mafia are the headliners (for now).
Megan Thee Stallion, Lil Baby, 21 Savage, Doja Cat, Run The Jewels, Vince Staples, Baby Keem, City Girls, Denzel Curry, Freddie Gibbs & Madlib, Brockhampton, Mako Kream, and JID are also performing.
