Sign This Petition for Fetty Wap to Perform 'Trap Queen' at Nancy Reagan's Funeral

Nancy "was married to the money and introduced America to the stove," fans say, so it's only natural that Fetty would celebrate her life with song.

On Monday, a petition popped up on Change.org with a single plea—"White House," its title reads, "Have Fetty Wap Perform 'Trap Queen' at Nancy Reagan's Funeral."

The petition argues that Fetty playing at the former first lady's funeral—she passed away over the weekend—is only natural since Nancy is "the most famous Trap Queen in American history." As evidence, the author cites the Reagan era's harsh, failed drug policies—and the CIA's reported role in cocaine trafficking during the administration—for laying the foundation for the modern-day trap.

Nancy Reagan's "Just Say No" campaign accompanied a wave of stricter drug laws, author David D. writes. "Blacks and Latinos went to jail in droves for possessing drugs her husband gave them." Nancy "was married to the money and introduced America to the stove," he adds.

As of Tuesday morning, the petition was on the cusp of hitting its goal of 5,000 signatures. Unfortunately, Fetty will be spitting bars at Buku Music Festival in New Orleans on Friday and probably unable to perform at Nancy's funeral, even if President Obama implores him to.
