Petition created to ban rapper Bun B from Houston sports

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- A Houston sports fan is calling for rapper Bun B to be banned from cheering on local teams.

According to, Dontralle Brown Reed started the petition calling it "To ban Bun B from Houston sports." He claims the rapper's support is bad for our teams.

"We have lost players, prime time games and shots at championships every time he's involved from appearances to his songs. The fans are growing tired and this has been going on the past five years. He only comes around when we are winning, so its only right to ban him from the teams. He is a bandwagon for his image," the petition reads.

The Astros were on a five-game losing streak until they won against the Texas Rangers Sunday.
