Redfoo has already been slammed over his “misogynistic” new song and now he could lose his job on The X Factor Australia.

A petition has been set up asking Channel 7 to not rehire the singer as a judge on the hit show.

Redfoo’s latest song Literally I Can’t has been labelled the most sexist song of the year for featuring lyrics that are degrading to women, and a video that’s just as bad.

The petition, aptly titled You literally can’t rehire Redfoo, has already surpassed its original goal of 15,000 signatures and is now aiming for 25,000!


As a judge on The X Factor, Redfoo is required to “mentor contestants - often, young women. His offensive and misogynistic portrayal of women in his video clips and performances, disqualifies him from such a role,” the petition reads.

But Redfoo has taken to Twitter to defend the song, which features rappers Lil Jon and Enertia McFly and production duo Play-N-Skillz, saying that it was misinterpreted and he “loves and respects women.”

He also released the following apology on his Facebook page just today:

To my fans, friends & family who, in my mind, are one in the same,

I love you all.

Over the years, you’ve connected with me through my music, art & our personal interactions. My greatest joy & mission from day one has been to entertain people from all walks of life: the kids, parents, teens, ladies, gentlemen, cops & even the robbers.

I get excited to create things that will unite all of us through laughter, dance & celebration. If during that process I offend anyone, I apologize from the bottom of my heart. In the future I will be more mindful of the way I present my art.


Channel 7 is yet to respond to the petition but it’s not exactly something they can ignore.

So do you think Redfoo should be allowed to return to The X Factor Australia next year? Let us know on our Facebook page.
