Kanye West’s petition to remove rapper music from Spotify and Apple Music reaches 50,000 signatures

Over 50,000 people have signed a petition to remove Kanye West’s music catalog from streaming services.

At the time of writing, a Change.org petition started by Nathan Georgen had up to 55,900 signatures.

The petition was launched on Friday (December 2) after West made anti-Semetic comments during an interview with right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones on his Infowars channel.

“I like Hitler,” West announced during the interview.

Though Jones tried to say he didn’t think West liked Hitler, the rapper cut him off and insisted he stood by his point of view.

“The Jews…I love everyone, and the Jewish people aren’t going to tell me, ‘You can love us and you can love what we’re going to do to you with the contracts and you can love what we’re pushing with the pornography,'” he said.

“But this guy who invented highways, invented the very microphone that I use as a musician, you can’t say out loud that this person has ever done any good, and I’m done with that.”

“I’m done with the classifications. Everyone has something of value that they brought to the table, especially Hitler,” West added.

Now petition founder Georgen has asked services like Spotify and Apple Music to remove his music from their platforms.

“Kanye West recently issued statements praising Hitler and denying the Holocaust after making harmful anti-Semitic remarks for over a month,” Georgen wrote on the petition page.

“Our society has no place for people who spread this kind of hate to make millions from their work.

“I urge Apple Music, Spotify, Amazon Music and other streaming platforms to immediately remove all Kanye West solo albums and singles from their platforms.”

He said that he believes removing West’s music is the only way to prevent him from making such an impact.

“By doing this, I hope we can limit Kanye’s impact on society by depriving him of an opportunity to monetize people who stream his music,” he wrote.

“His testimony is virtually irrevocable and it’s finally time he got a serious sentence. We cannot allow him to continue to affect our youth and our society as a whole.”

On Thursday (December 1), the rapper was banned from Twitter by Elon Musk after posting a design of a swastika in the Star of David.

The tweet violated the platform’s policy against incitement to violence. Musk said he “tried his best” to convince the rapper not to post such content.

The Independent has reached out to representatives from West, as well as Spotify and Apple Music for comment.
