continued presence on American Idol
is apparently driving some people right over the edge.
One fan has found herself so upset about Sanjaya that she's allegedly going on a hunger strike until "American Idol
voters wise up, and stop voting Sanjaya through each week."
"I have not been contacted as of yet by any American Idol camp or anyone associated with Sanjaya stating that he is going to leave the show in order for my strike to end," says J on her MySpace blog, Starvation for Sanjaya (www.myspace.com/starvationforsanjaya
J claims that other people are joining her movement, and that it's "a form of passive resistance to support a cause."
"We have no problems with Sanjaya personally, he seems like a very personable and charming young man. However, he does NOT belong on American Idol. The judges faltered with their decision to place him in the 24, and American Idol voters have done even worse by keeping him on."
She claims now to be "feeling too tired and weak" to make another video. "It's getting to a point where I don't know if I can continue on like this anymore, my parents are starting to get concerned."
J also suggests boycotts as a valid way of getting Sanjaya off the show, but I think maybe her plan needs a little more thought put into it, possibly by someone who's not starving themselves.
"A really good option is to boycott all Coke-a-Cola products. As you know, Coke-a-Cola is a huge sponsor of American Idol
. By doing this, stores will not need to reorder supplies from Coke distributors so they will really be hit where it hurts. So instead of joining the hunger strike per say, you can simply just decide to opt for Pepsi or ice water the next time you are thirsty."
Um, yeah. Like that'll work.
Here's a YouTube video from J explaining her hunger strike, apparently made last week.
