A fan has created an account on Change.org under the alias ‘Kim Pete’ and launched a petition urging the organisers of the festival to drop Ye following his attacks on his estranged wife Kim Kardashian and her new boyfriend Pete Davidson.
The petition reads: “We have watched Kanye harass, manipulate, and hurt Kim, Pete, and others for over a year now.
“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,” they continued, “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. Please sign & share!”
The petition has already amassed over 5,000 signatures of its current 7,500 goal.
It was created on the same day Ye was suspended from Instagram for 24 hours after he violated guidelines over their policies on hate speech, harassment and bullying.
As per TMZ, it was confirmed that Kanye was suspended over a breach of community guidelines after he hurled a racial slur at Trevor Noah following the comedian’s statement about the Yeezy founder’s ongoing attacks on his KUWTK star ex.
This comes after Travis Scott was removed from the bill following the Astroworld tragedy, which saw 10 people lose their lives at the festival.
