Over 11,000 angry people have protested for Iggy Azalea to return the Top Rap Song Billboard Music Award for her “fancy” track. Campaigners have claimed she is not eligible for the prize.

The petition currently has over 11,800 signatures of its aimed 15,000.

According to the report, “Fancy” was released on February 17th, 2014. The eligibility time period for nominations was March 10, 2014 through March 2015.

This is unfair to the other nominees in these category, especially to “Anaconda” by Nicki Minaj, a petitioner disclosed.

"Billboard did not follow their own guidelines and should have to recalculate these nominations without 'Fancy' as a nominee.

The International Business Times reports, has argued that, the Billboard Music Awards were not based on release date, but on a "reporting period" for Nielsen sales data and chart performance of March 10, 2014 to March 8, 2015,.

Dick Clark Productions, the production company behind the event has also confirmed that Azalea won the prize fair and square.
