Justin Bieber obviously has millions of fans, but thousands of non-Beliebers are so fed up with the singer’s recent behavior, they want him kicked out of the U.S. and sent back to his native Canada.
A petition titled “Deport Justin Bieber and Revoke His Green Card” has received more than 50 thousand signatures on the White House’s We the People portal.
“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,” the petition declares.
The petition states the singer “is not only threatening the safety of our people but he is also a terrible influence on our nation's youth. We the people would like to remove Justin Bieber from our society.”
According to the government website, if any petition reaches the threshold of 100,000 signatures, it “will be reviewed by the [Obama] Administration” and a “response” will be issued.
There is also a pro-Bieber petition on the We the People site. “Stop Justin Bieber from getting deported," the petition reads. "He is a human being and he makes mistakes. He does not deserve this.”
The petition concludes, “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.”
That petition has a way to go to reach the 100,000 threshold. As of Tuesday morning, it had just 709 signatures.
A second anti-Justin petition on We the People has received just over 1,600 signatures. “Send him back to Canada, revoke his green card and his hair gel,” that petition declares.
