Justin Bieber Deportation Petition Gaining SteamBy: Matt Spencer - January 30, 2014
You think you’re sick of the Biebs? Well, a group of dedicated Americans is working to have the Canadian pop sensation deported back to the Great White North.
The petition was filed on the White House website, which hosts petitions for citizens looking to advance a cause, or just rid the country of drunk-driving Canucks who write bad love songs. The petition makes its aims very clear:
We the people of the United States feel that we are being wrongly represented in the world of pop culture. 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.
While the petition to kick Bieber out of the U.S. most likely started as a joke, it has become very real due to having collected over 100,000 signatures. Unfortunately for the Biebs, 100,000 is the point at which the petitions are required to come under presidential consideration. That’s right, on top of the economy and bipartisan bickering President Obama now has to worry about whether to earn the disdain of every pre-teen girl in North American and beyond.
All joking aside, the success of the petition is quite remarkable when looked at beside other petitions that have been filed on the site, which include calls for everything from the legalization of illegal drugs like Marijuana to a presidential pardon for wikileaker Edward Snowden.
Bieber’s recent arrest for drunk driving surely hurt his side of the debate. If the arrest ends up affected the visa that allows him to be in the states then the petition may prove to be a moot point for true Bieber haters.[Image via CNN on YouTube]
