Los Angeles :Students from Boston University have started a petition urging the school to cancel Robin Thicke`s performance at their spring concert next month at the Agganis Arena.

In the petition, they have urged that "it is a dishonor to our feminist history to symbolically idolize Robin Thicke by allowing him to perform his misogynist music at our university."

The Change.Org petition, which as of February 20 afternoon, had more than 1,500 names attached to it in support.

BU spokesman Colin Riley responded to students` concerns, saying the school`s administration had no role in scheduling Thicke`s appearance.

"This is not a BU concert. This is Agganis Arena, one stop of a 16-show tour, for Robin Thicke to perform," Riley said.
