In less than one week a petition to deport Canadian-born pop star Justin Bieber has more than 100,000 thousand signatures on the White House’s website, reaching the required threshold for an official review and response from the executive office.
“We would like to see the dangerous, reckless, destructive, and drug abusing, Justin Bieber deported and his green card revoked,” reads the petition with 105,934 signatures and counting. “He is not only threatening the safety of our people but he is also a terrible influence on our nation’s youth.”
Earlier this month the Biebs, who’s baby face image seems to have gone full on bad boy, was arrested in Miami on charges of DUI, resisting arrest and driving with an expired license. A week before that Los Angeles county deputies found illegal drugs in Bieber’s Calabasas home-slash-frat house after a search prompted by repeated complaints (one involved an “egging”) from his high-end neighbors.
Back in 2010 Bieber and his famous bangs were on better terms with the 1600 Penn. — and eggs. The “Baby” singer performed at the annual White House Easter Egg Roll and the president even referred to Bieber as “a nice young man.” Most official responses to White House petitions are written by senior staffers, not the president, but whoever gets the task of typing up 1,000 words on the Ontario-native will have an interesting day at work.
