Iggy Azalea fans everywhere rejoiced last week when their girl took home the Top Rap Song Billboard Music Award for "Fancy" with Charlie XCX. Lovers of last year's addictive tune were thrilled, but others aren't quite so happy, and over 15,000 people have signed a petition for the award to be taken away from her.

But before you go accusing these petitioners of being your standard petty haters, it turns out they might actually have a legitimate reason why Iggy didn't deserve the award.

Petitioners claim that "Fancy" is ineligible to win a Billboard Award because it was released outside the eligible time period. "The eligibility time period for nominations is March 10th, 2014 through March 2015," they claim. "'Fancy' was released on February 17th, 2014, nearly a month before the eligibility starting."

If this is true, they certainly have a point. The petitioner goes on to say that Iggy winning the award is unfair, especially since other nominees' songs, like Nicki Minaj's "Anaconda," were released within the appropriate time period.

15,000 people have already signed the petition that went up shortly after Iggy won the award a week ago, and the petitioners goal is 25,000 signatures.
