The Petition To Ban Kanye West From Glastonbury Was "A Joke"

Its creator is still planning to go to the festival, however.

Some fans were pretty happy about it.

I think Kanye is going to make a terrific Glastonbury headliner.

But other people were much less enthusiastic.

The one year i go to Glastonbury and bloody Kanye West is Headlining it! Great.

11 years ago oasis headlined Glastonbury.. This year it's Kanye west! How shit is music now. He is one massive cunt. #awful #shit #cunt


Even some minor celebrities mentioned their disappointment.

Kanye headlining Glastonbury this year. Bit of a joke.

I was a little surprised that people have taken it as seriously as they have.I am fully aware that there is plenty of other stuff to keep me amused. Kanye is not to my liking, but then, I'm only one person.
He shouldn't represent anything. His songs are lyrically appalling. He sings about 'bitches' and 'niggers' ... He totally disrespected Beck at the recent Grammys. His Brits performance was just threatening... Glastonbury needs upbeat major artists.There are a huge number of acts free on that day. Surely the Eavis family didn't have to scrape quite so low?

A tumblr has been set up by a different person called "White People Angry About Kanye," featuring other complaints about the announcement.

Of course I'll keep it. There is so much to see in a festival, that I'll have a great time regardless of whether Kanye headlines. I'm sure we coulda got Fleetwood Mac for the same price. They're still free that weekend, by the way.Dream line-up? - Blur, Libertines, Cure, Oasis, Fleetwood Mac, Rolling Stones, Green Day, Springsteen, Jack White, Muse maybe?

He also admitted "I don't think it would make a difference if 200,000 people signed it," which given the on-going support for Kanye from the organisers, does ring true.
