A petition to deport Bieber back to Canada has reached over 100,000 signatures which means that it will be reviewed by the White House. The petition was started after the singer was arrested for DUI in Miami, Fla. last week. On Jan. 29, ABC News reported that the White House will have to respond to the petition as they have a policy that states that any petition receiving over 100,000 signatures will be looked over and dealt with in one way or another.
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."
The petition to deport Bieber likely won't get much of a response from the White House as the petition itself is a bit foolish. Deporting Bieber just because he's made a few minor mistakes in his life isn't really the right answer to his problem. Asking for Justin Bieber to be sent to rehab to get help for a possible drug addiction would be more suitable for this case.
Nonetheless, it is still pretty funny that people want Bieber sent back to Canada. This was the perfect way for non-Beliebers to show their hatred of him and, you have to admit that 100,000 people is a good crowd. However -- just to put that number into perspective -- Justin has 49.2 million Twitter followers. Just sayin'.
The petition to deport Bieber has received 120,697 as of 4:08 p.m. EST.
