Thousands of music fans have signed an online petition to stop socialite Paris Hilton from DJing at the Summerfest musical festival in Milwaukee this summer.

Thomas Neill, who created the Change.org petition, wrote:

"This is a middle finger to anyone who paid to go this festival. You claim to be one of the premier festivals in America and then you go ahead and hire someone like Paris Hilton. She is a disgrace to dance music and is a perfect example of what spoiled celebrities do when they're bored.

"She has no right to be paid good money to stand up there and clap her hands on a stage. That money could be used to hire credible djs that actually work hard on their craft."

Close to 5,000 people have signed the petition. Many left disparaging remarks about the former reality TV star, notes the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

The Arizona Republic reported last year that Hilton made $2.7 million during a four-day gig at a club on the Mediterranean Sea. Hilton posted a video (below) of herself DJing in India in 2012.

Those are far away from Milwaukee's Henry Maier Festival Park, which will host about 700 bands during the 11-day Summerfest, notes the New York Daily News.

Actress Lindsay Lohan's ex-girlfriend and professional DJ Samantha Ronson slammed Hilton's DJing in 2012 (video below).
