NEW YORK (
) -- Kim Kardashian haters are rallying together to try to boot the reality starlet and her family off television.
"In a grass roots effort, we have collected [thousands of] signatures for a petition asking E! Entertainment to remove the Kardashian suite of shows from their programming," petition organizer Cyndy Snider said in a statement. "We feel that these shows are mostly staged and place an emphasis on vanity, greed, promiscuity, vulgarity and over-the-top conspicuous consumption."

on GoPetition.com has already received more than 46,000 signatures. Facebook pages have also been created to oust the Kardashian clan from the cable network.
"While some may have begun watching the spectacle as mindless entertainment or as a sort of 'reality satire,' it is a sad truth that many young people are looking up to this family and are modeling their appearance and behavior after them," Snider continued. "I'll remind you here that the Kardashian family fame largely started with a 'leaked' sex tape."
Keeping Up With The Kardashians
is one of E!'s highest rated shows.
