On January 23 an unidentified person in Detroit created an online petition requesting the deportation of pop singer Justin Bieber, according to the official White House website.

“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.”

The petition titled “Deport Justin Bieber and revoke his green card” needed 100,000 signatures by February 22 to get an official response from the White House staff. As of Wednesday January 29 the petition has received over 130,000 signatures.

The petition was created just days after Bieber’s arrest in Miami for drag racing and DUI.

Despite one arrest the singer has been known for his deviant behavior as of late. In 2013 Bieber was accused of spitting in a neighbor’s face and making threats, reckless driving. No charges were filed.

Earlier this month Bieber was accused of throwing raw eggs at his neighbor’s house, causing $20,000 in damages.

It is unclear if Bieber’s behavior is extreme enough to constitute deportation, however criminal lawyer Brian Claypool offered some words of wisdom in the situation.

"This is a good start for him to be on his way to being deported unless he puts the brakes on, big time. This is like a little bonfire now, but it could turn into a raging inferno."
