Deport Justin Bieber Petition Gets Counter Petition

The “Deport Justin Bieber” We The People petition has topped 100,000 signatures, which means that technically, the White House has to respond. But as unlikely as it is that the pop star will actually be booted back to Canada, a counter petition has been started on the site claiming that Bieber doesn’t deserve the treatment he’s getting after being arrested for drunkenly drag racing in California.

Bieber, who is underage, was arrested on January 23 for DUI; the incident followed several run-ins with the law, including one in which they obtained a search warrant to enter his home during a vandalism investigation (he was accused of egging a neighbor’s home) and found cocaine, which allegedly belonged to Bieber’s pal Lil’ Za. The rapper was arrested at that time, and Bieber was let off the hook. But his antics of late have caused the once adoring-public to tire of his headline-making ways, and the petition didn’t take long to garner enough signatures to be looked at by the White House.

Created on January 25, the counter-petition states, “Stop Justin Bieber from getting deported. He is a human being and he makes mistakes. He does not deserve this. The whole idea of Justin Drew Bieber getting deported, is completely unfair. He doesn’t deserve this…. With your help, we can stop it. He’s human. He’s not perfect. The media sees the bad side of him. Please. He’s saved so many lives. Including mine. A lifesaver, Shouldn’t deserve this.”

Unfortunately for Bieber’s fans, the new petition only has 1,745 signatures so far. Just 98,255 to go.

  • Immigration

    I know immigrants and trust me, Beiber is not in the same boat. He is rich. The law doesn't apply to him.

    I know a girl who was an illegal and she was taken in to custody. Immigrants are not given a phone call or a lawyer. They aren't even given shoes in prison and sleep on the floors. She was just 18 and never harmed a soul in her life. She was just a waitress. Well her parents thought she was killed because months passed and they literally had no idea where their daughter was. The girl was moved three times a month from prison to prison. There is big money in housing immigrants. After a year or so passed, she was able to get word to her parents through the kindness of strangers within the system.

    What we are doing to immigrants is not moral. They aren't terrorists and pose no threats. In fact, they do all the jobs most Americans do not want to do. Don't listen to all the fear mongering that is in the media. Most of it is simply bullshit and not reality. If you want to see reality, walk down to a detention center and see what is happening to those people.

    Go see reality with your own two eyes and not through the eyes of a hate filled person in the media. I challenge America to look with their own two eyes at reality.
