‘Deport Bieber’ Petition Gets Enough Support to Require White House Response
WASHINGTON, D.C. — A petition in support of deporting pop star Justin Bieber following his arrest for drunk driving and drag racing has gained enough signatures to require a White House response.
The petition, created Jan. 23, now has more than 110,000 signatures as of Wednesday. The White House is required to reply after 100,000.
Here is the text from the petition:
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.
According to Gawker, the White House response has no time table, and could take weeks. A counter petition to not deport Bieber currently has just 1,619 signatures.
