RedFoo apparently won't be returning to judge X-Factor in 2015.

It seems X-Factor Australia has finally got the message we find RedFoo annoying 'cause he's talking, with reports he's been officially dumped from the judging panel for 2015.

News Ltd is reporting the pop artist who released the most sexist and offensive song of 2014 was "the obvious one to go", according to Channel 7 'insiders'.

Whether the song itself was the decisive factor is unknown, but with lyrical content implying young women are sluts and shouting at them to "Shut The F**k Up" for resisting aggressive advances, it can't have helped his case.

RedFoo's reaction to the totally justifiable backlash probably didn't help him either.

A change.org petition circulated late last year gathered almost $25,000 signatures telling Channel 7 "You literally can't rehire Redfoo" - and Destroy The Joint took the campaign to Twitter using the hashtag #ShutTheFooUp.

You can watch the offending song below, although we wouldn't recommend it.
