X Factor competitor Honey G has spoken to getwestlondon after a petition of thousands has emerged calling for the Harrow star to be removed from the show.
Outraged X Factor fans have backed a petition calling for Honey G to be removed from the show after she was selected over Samantha Atkinson to continue in the competition.
The controversial decision made by X Factor judge Sharon Osbourne has seen fans support Samantha's family, who began the petition after feeling "justice" was not done.
But Honey G told getwestlondon: "I'm not focusing on what anyone's talking about online.
"Sharon's made her decision; they've done it out of spite, they just don't know who they're messing with.
"They're just haters; I'm focusing on my shows on Saturday night and these people need to check themselves."
She added: "If they want to be negative, they can carry on because the response I've had has been amazing; there's been more support than there has been people going about this stupid petition."
When asked whether it could hinder her live performance, she said: "Sharon's put me through for a reason, they're never going to get anywhere.
"My mum says don't take any notice of all this, I'm focusing on performances.
"I'm gonna be doing some big numbers and they just need to back down - and I'm sure Sharon's not taking any notice of it either."
Yasemin Kara, Samantha's cousin, set up the petition asking for the 32-year-old landlady to be given another shot.
She left the show after Honey G, real name Anna Georgette Gilford, was put through to the live stages by Sharon, who said she had decided to take a "risk" on the 35-year-old.Within 12 hours of it being started, nearly 3,000 people had signed the online petition , with the figure now being 15,279 viewers.
Supporter Carol wrote: "I won't be watching the rest this year as the judges have chosen badly."
Fan Victoria added: "This is a joke, a talented woman gets struck off."
In an interview with getwestlondon, Honey G said she wanted to "prove to Sharon and the general public she deserved her place in the judges' houses in LA".
"I was surprised I wasn't picked initially because the crowd's reaction was unbelievable, but I understand I'm up against some fierce competition and I'm a rapper looking to be taken seriously," she said.
