Deport Justin Bieber petition: 100K want 'Biebs' deported, White House to reply

A “Deport Justin Bieber petition” has gone viral, and much like anything the teen idol does these days, it’s top news. This time however, the “Biebs” isn’t getting slobbering attention from teeny boppers, he’s getting a proposed kick in the rear – right out of the country.

The Hollywood Reporter said today that “the petition to deport the Canadian singer has collected over 100,000 signatures in under a week's time,” which means that the White House cannot fluff it off.

Bieber, a Canadian citizen, is allowed to live in the United States because of his O-1 visa, which is issued to individuals with "extraordinary ability or achievement" in their field, which includes the arts.

The visa however does not include achievements in drag racing, pot smoking, DUI convictions or any of the other ignominious shenanigans that the pop singer has been getting into these days.

Therefore, according to the petition-makers, they want Bieber’s green card revoked.

The petition reads:

"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 nation's youth. We the people would like to remove Justin Bieber from our society."

Because the signature threshold of 100,000 was met, the White House must now issue a formal reply.

Of course, the throngs of Bieber fans cannot stand by while their 20-year-old heartthrob is threatened with deportation. An anti-deport Justin Bieber petition has now been posted:

"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."

No word on whose life the pop star saved, or how he in fact has "saved so many lives." But the second petition is lagging behind. Only 1,500 have signed it as of the writing of this article.
