Thousands sign petition to axe controversial X Factor star

Honey G was put through to the live shows by Sharon Osbourne - but fans aren't happy.

More than 9-thousand people have signed a petition calling for the controversial rapper to be axed from the series.

Sharon Osbourne - who's mentoring the 'overs' category, says she decided to take a 'risk' by putting the 35-year-old rapper through to the live shows.

The hip-hop singer impressed Sharon and guest judge Robbie Williams with her rendition of Coolio’s Gangsta’s Paradise.

But now the cousin of Samantha Atkinson, who didn't make it past judges' houses - is calling for her relative to replace the singer, who's real name is Anna Georgette Gilford.

On the petition's site - Yasemine Kara wrote:

"I and thousands of other X factor viewers feel she was robbed of her place on live shows tonight....when Sharon Osbourne didn't place her in the top 12....then sign and show X factor bosses and Itv that they have made a huge mistake!!! Let's get Sami back as the wild card for X Factor 2016!"
