Boston University students protest Robin Thicke concert

Posted: Updated:
BOSTON (WHDH) - Boston University students made their voices heard Tuesday night by protesting outside Robin Thicke’s concert at the Agganis Arena.

They say Thicke is crossing the line with the lyrics to his single “Blurred Lines” and that it promotes nonconsensual sex.

Students created a petition earlier in the year in hopes of keeping the tour and that song away from BU. The movement gained more than a thousand signatures but didn't prevent the concert.

“I think it’s disgusting how the BU administration allowed him to come perform on a college campus, when rape is already so prevalent,” Katrina Barry, one of the protesting students, said.

Agganis Arena is one of 16 major venues all over the US and Canada where Thicke is performing on this tour.
