Justin Bieber’s fate will now be reviewed by White House staff after a petition to remove the “dangerous, reckless, destructive” young Canadian reached 100,000.

Thousands of Americans signed the online petition asking for the troubled singer’s deportation to his home country Canada following a series of high profile controversies and a recent arrest.

Once a petition reaches a 100,000 signatures it must be reviewed by White House staff and an official statement given.

It’s not exactly good news for the singer, who was described by the petition’s creator, Detroit resident, J.M as “dangerous, reckless, destructive, and drug abusing.”

The petition goes on to state: “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.”
