Justin Bieber has turned to a black sheep overnight. Over 100,000 Americans have signed
an online petition asking for Justin Bieber to be deported. With Bieber’s increasing controversies and his recent drag-race arrest, signatories are asking the White House for the California denizen to be sent back to Canada.
“We the people of the United States feel that we are being wrongly represented in the world of pop culture,” wrote the petition’s creator, Detroit resident J.M. “We would like to see the dangerous, reckless, destructive, and drug abusing, Justin Bieber deported and his green card revoked. He is not only threatening the safety of our people but he is also a terrible influence on our nations youth. We the people would like to remove Justin Bieber from our society.”
In just five days after it was first posted to the government’s “We the People” platform, over 100,000 Americans have signed the petition asking the Obama administration to revoke Bieber’s green card. The petition has reached the threshold that elicits an official response from the White House.
A rival petition, pleading for Bieber to be allowed to stay in the US because “he is a human being who makes mistakes”, has collected less than 1,000 signatures.
