Princeton is facing criticism from students after the school’s student government hired rapper Big Sean to perform at the college’s bi-annual Lawnparties music festival. Students have started a petition calling for the rapper’s invitation to perform at the school to be revoked. The petition has received hundreds of signatures.

Students who organized the petition say that Big Sean’s lyrics are misogynistic and that he should not be hired to perform at a college festival when so many universities around the country are trying to combat sexual misconduct on campuses. Big Sean was accused in 2011 of sexual assault, fueling the argument that the rapper is not an appropriate concert performer.

Big Sean has not canceled his performance and the school’s student government has declined to disinvite the rapper.
