Not even 30 days into a new year, Canadian pop superstar Justin Bieber has garnered more media attention than ever – unfortunately, not due to his musical talent or teen heartthrob status. Bieber has received flack from fans and critics alike for his numerous run-ins with authorities, pictures gone viral of him spitting on fans from a balcony, and reports of egging a neighbor’s house. Not to mention his DUI and drag racing charges, and rumors of the Miami Heat banning him from all home games.
Nickelodeon all-star Drake Bell, created the petition, adding fuel to their long-standing beef, including Twitter battles and rants. Since its launch on January 23, over 124,000 Americans agree with Bell to get the “Baby” singer’s green card permanently revoked.
The petition reads:
WE PETITION THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO: Deport Justin Bieber and revoke his green card. 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.
Since the petition has hit the 100,000 threshold (it’s approaching 125,00 signatures as of press time), the White House is obligated to review and respond to the document.
