"Whoever is behind this should be hanged, drawn, and quartered in the public square as an example that bad music is no longer tolerable," one viewer commented on YouTube.

Wrote another: "I'm not Thankful at all after listening to that."

"I had no idea how big this would get," Westbrook said in an interview with ABC News. "It's so overwhelming but at the same time it's so great. I've never experienced this before. I haven't listened to any of the comments, so I don't know how exactly people are taking this, but it's so big right now so it's great."

 Westbrook is being backed by Patrice Wilson of ARK Music Factory and PMW Live, who co-wrote and produced Black's "Friday" and also appears in "It's Thanksgiving" wearing a turkey costume.

"Patrice had told me it was so hard for her [Black] because she gave into all the negative feedback," the tween singer said. "I'm just not like that. I'm staying as far away from that as I can. I'm at a good age and know what I should and shouldn't read. They're entitled to their own opinions."
