Deport Justin Bieber petition tops 114,000 signatures
(WJLA) - The petition is clear and to the point: "Deport Justin Bieber and revoke his green card."
Over 114,000 people have signed a petition on WhiteHouse.gov asking the federal government send Bieber back to Canada.
The petition calls the pop star "dangerous, reckless, destructive and drug abusing."
The petition says: "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."
Having passed the 100,000 signature threshold, the petition will get an official response from the president's administration.
But not everyone wants Bieber to leave. A counter-petition asking the government not to deport him has over 1,600 signatures. A second counter-petition had about 740 signatures as of 2:50 p.m. Wednesday.
Bieber's recent woes include an investigation into the egging of a neighbor's home in California and an arrest in Miami Beach on Jan. 23. He was charged with DUI, resisting arrest and driving with an expired license. Bieber was released on bail and faces a Feb. 14 arraignment in a Miami-Dade County court.
