Princeton Students Are Petitioning To Stop A Big Sean Concert

They say his lyrics are misogynistic and promote rape culture.

April 09, 2015

Students at Princeton are mounting a protest to prevent Big Sean from playing at an outdoor concert on campus this spring. Rebecca Basaldua and Duncan Hosie have started a petition aimed at student government to cancel his performance at Lawn Parties, a biannual festival on campus. Since sharing an op-ed and the petition online Sunday, Hosie and Basaldua have accumulated at least 500 signatures. Other students have posted flyers on campus with the lyrics If she look good she pay me in sex, adding below: "Want to take this down? Take down Big Sean."

As of now, Big Sean is still scheduled to perform. Social committee chair Simon Wu told The Daily Princetonian, "The contracts are signed and it's unrealistic to stop this from happening."
