Students to Boston University: Cancel Robin Thicke Show

Robin Thicke may have had the "song of the summer," but at least a few Boston University students (and nearly 2,000 people who've signed their petition) think his "Blurred Lines" is also sexist—and they don't want him performing on campus, according to Newser.com.



Thicke has a concert scheduled at the school on March 4, but in the petition started by the Humanists of Boston University, students label him a misogynist whose hit single "celebrates having sex with women against their will" and ask that the show be canceled.

"Lyrics such as, 'I know you want it,' explicitly use non-consensual language," the petition reads. Says the group's president, "There's even a vignette you can find online where rape victims write down things their rapists said to them before or during the act of rape and they are astonishingly similar to the lyrics used."
