Fans Petition Billboard To Strip Iggy Azalea Of Best Rap Song Award

share on:

Iggy Azalea really can’t catch a break.

The Australian rapper had come under fire after winning the Best Rap Song award at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards.

Iggy’s collaboration with Charli XCX, Fancy, had won the award over other rap songs like Nicki Minaj’Anaconda and Bobby Shmurda‘s street anthem, Hot Nigga.

A fan took the backlash a step further by starting a petition, claiming Fancy was not qualified to be among the nominees, and thus should never have won.

The petition reads:

Iggy Azalea’s 2015 Billboard Award for Best Song has been proven invalid. The eligibility time period for nominations is March 10th, 2014 through March 2015. “Fancy” was released on February 17th, 2014, nearly a month before the eligibility starting. This is unfair to the other nominees in these category, especially to “Anaconda” by Nicki Minaj, who most likely would’ve won. Billboard did not follow their own guidelines and should have to recalculate these nominations without “Fancy” as a nominee.

Billboard is yet to respond.
