Thousands of people have now signed a petition to get Harrow rapper Honey G booted off the X Factor .

An online petition called "Remove Honey G from X Factor" which was created less than one week ago has gathered a whopping 11,500 plus signatures from people across the country.

The petition to get the controversial rapper removed from the ITV show was started after the 36-year-old revealed her drug-fuelled past in a newspaper interview.

Some of the comments left by people who have backed the petition have called her a "selfless wannabe" and a "disgrace" after she tweeted during the two minute silence held for Remembrance Sunday.

Jeanette Horn from Liverpool wrote: "The same Honey G that waved her arms round wearing sunglasses emulating a Gangster/criminal during a tribute to the fallen heroes of this country.

"Oh and she tweeted a request for votes during 2 mins silence. How more detached from reality can she get, selfish wannabe."

Maria Virag from London added: "It's disrespectful how she tweets during the two minutes silence - it's a disgrace to the UK!"

Thomas Graham from Glasgow, said: "Apart from her total disrespect when singing remembrance song this is supposed to be a singing competition which she clearly cannot do and now to read about her bragging about taking class A drugs she really is no sort of role model for the younger generation.

"Brilliant singers have been put out for this total idiot to be kept in get a grip do the right thing and GET HER ONT NOW."
