Uh oh the hate for Yeezy is real in some parts. Emily Eavis says she received death threats after booking Kanye West to headline Glastonbury. More than 130,000 people have signed a petition protesting his appearance. Eavis, who organizes the festival says she had become accustomed to her decisions being criticized when fans expressed outrage when Metallica and The Rolling Stones were booked previously for the event. She expects criticism but death threats are a bit much.
