Students at Boston University in Massachusetts have launched an online petition calling on school officials to cancel an upcoming concert by Robin Thicke.

Officials at student organization the Humanists of Boston University have started a petition to put a halt to the “Blurred Lines” hitmaker’s tour stop on March 4 because of his “sexist lyrics”.

The petition reads, “It is a dishonor to our feminist history to symbolically idolize Robin Thicke by allowing him to perform his misogynist music at our university… ‘Blurred Lines’ celebrates having sex with women against their will.”

Despite the fact that about 1,400 students have signed the petition as of Thursday, a school official tells The Huffington Post that administration had no part in booking the Thicke gig and it is unlikely to be canceled.
