Gosling superfans sure think so! People Magazine announced Wednesday that Mr. Bradley Cooper took the crown for 2011’s Sexiest Man Alive. Almost immediately, Gosling groupies took to the internet– and the streets– to protest.

Pro-Gosling tweeters are rallying around the hashtag #OccupyPeopleMagazine and the facebook page The Ryan Gosling Deserved to be People’s Sexiest Man of the Year Movement organized a protest outside People’s headquarter’s Thursday:

Their main beef seems to be that Gosling had a bigger year than Cooper in 2011,  which saw him star in three high-profile movies: “Drive,” “The Ides of March” and “Crazy, Stupid, Love.” Gosling’s rocking abs have also been cited as a reason he should have won.

Even though Gosling is mentioned as an honoree and has a whole page to himself in the issue,  his fans are not satisfied. There is even a online petition in which they demand  People rethink their decision and give Gosling a cover. Signers of the petition are sharing their personal thoughts on why Ryan should have won:

This is a TRAVESTY. I fear for the sanity of the world when a magazine as reputable as People could be blind to the obvious superiority of Ryan’s sexiness. This is far more concerning than any other human injustice I’ve seen thus far.–  June Chaiyasit

Because when Bradley Cooper says ‘”Hey Girl” he really doesn’t give a s*** –Cassidy Collins

Because he is my son and I am still kind of attracted to him! That is not wrong PEOPLE! — Ryan’s Mom


So where do you stand on this incredibly important matter?
