'Remove Justin Bieber from our society': Over 50,000 Americans sign petition to have the troubled singer deported
Thousands of US citizens are begging the White House to instruct the deportation of the troubled star back to Canada
Thousands of Americans have taken to the internet with the aim of purging their country from the “dangerous, reckless, destructive” force of a one Mr Justin Bieber.
Almost 50,000 have signed an online petition are begging the White House to instruct the deportation of the troubled star back to his home country of Canada following his recent arrest and slew of other controversies.
“We the people of the United States feel that we are being wrongly represented in the world of pop culture,” the petition's creator, Detroit resident J.M wrote in a potentially accusing statement.
“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 application, which has only been live for a couple of days, has already attracted upwards of 50,000 votes, and looks set to reach the dizzying 100,000s needed to command an official response from the government.
But there also exists a rival petition pleading for Bieber to be allowed to stay in the US because “he is a human being who makes mistakes”. However, that has only garnered a relatively meagre 537 signatures so far.
Neither Bieber nor Bieber’s people have responded to either petition’s claims.
According to the Guardian, reports indicate that the star is allowed to live in the US based on the conditions of a 0-1 visa “ for foreign nationals of extraordinary ability”.
However if, for example, he is convicted of a crime of “moral turpitude”, an aggravated felony or is sentenced to over a year in prison, he will be rendered eligible for deportation.
Meanwhile, Bieber’s big label boss has become so concerned for the welfare of the pop star he’s ploughed all his money into, he’s on the verge of staging an intervention.
Speaking for the first time following the singer’s arrest (initially for DUI and driving with an expired licensed, now just for resisting arrest ‘without violence’) Universal chief Lucian Grainge broke company protocol to make a public plea to the troubled teen, who is currently living it up on a beach in Panama.

And it’s a message we truly wish he’d listen to:take a break from music.
“I’m very concerned about him. I’ve been concerned about him for many months,” Grainge said at the official Universal Music Group Grammys aftershow party, held at the Ace Hotel in Los Angeles on Sunday night.
