The petition to remove Kanye West as the Coachella headliner has garnered over 25,000 signatures.

The number of signatures on the petition to have Kanye West removed as a headliner at Coachella 2022 continues to grow.

The petition titled “Remove Kanye from Coachella!” had gathered over 25,000 signatures as of Monday afternoon.

Last Thursday, a user named Caramello Marie initiated the online call-to-action. The insider claimed that the petition was sparked by West’s social media attacks on his ex-wife, Kim Kardashian, and her new partner, Pete Davidson.

“For over a year, we’ve watched Kanye harass, manipulate, and harm Kim, Pete, and others. No one seems to want to stand up to him, and those who do are subjected to his wrath,” reads the description.

“Most recently, he has threatened others with actual bodily violence. It’s absurd that he’s allowed to do this so openly. Coachella (and other brands that continue to work with him) should be ashamed of themselves and should not be giving him any further opportunities.”

People applauded Marie’s reasoning for requesting West’s withdrawal from the prestigious California music festival in the comments section.

A female user remarked, “The amount of abuse/veiled threats/etc should not be celebrated/tolerated.”

Another woman agreed, writing, ”Kanye is a narcissistic egotistical bully who thinks his money and celebrity give him a free pass to abuse, threaten, shame and defame others. Why he has been allowed to get away with this appalling behaviour for so long is a joke.”

West, 44, has also been called out publicly by notable names like D.L. Hughley and Trevor Noah. The “Daily Show” host highlighted how the Yeezy CEO’s posts shine “a spotlight on what so many women go through when they choose to leave.”

Over the weekend, the Grammys announced West would no longer be permitted to perform on their stage due to his “concerning online behavior.”

Reps for Coachella did not return Page Six’s request for comment on the petition and have not released a statement regarding West’s social media attacks.Kim Kardashian and Kanye West walking together.

In February, West himself threatened to drop out of the festival after he perceived co-headliner Billie Eilish’s attempt to help a fan at one of her concerts as a diss toward his pal Travis Scott, following the latter’s Astroworld tragedy.

“Come on Billie we love you,” Ye wrote in a since-deleted post, which was accompanied by a snapshot of the headline from RapSeaTV’s reporting of the alleged “diss” from Eilish. “Please apologize to Trav and to the families of the people who lost their lives.”

The “Bad Guy” singer responded on social media, “[I] literally never said a thing about travis. was just helping a fan.”

Coachella is set to take place from April 15 to April 24 in Indio, Calif.
