America, it seems, has had enough of Justin Bieber.
And it would appear that his arrest for drunkenly racing through the streets of Miami Beach last week has inspired an official White House petition through Barack Obama's "Wee The People" project to have Biebz deported back to Canada.
The petition needs 100,000 signatures by February 22nd to be officially heard by the White House. As of Tuesday afternoon, there have been more than 75,000.
Finally, Obama has found something that unites ALL Americans!
The petition, which seems to have been started by someone from Detroit who goes by the initials, "J.A," calls for the White House to revoke the Canadian-born Bieber's green card.
And, angrily so.
"We the people of the United States feel that we are being wrongly represented in the world of pop culture," it reads. "We would like to see the dangerous, reckless, destructive, and drug abusing, Justin Bieber deported and his green card revoked."
The petition goes on to say that Bieber, 19, is not a great example to our nation's young people, and that he's a threat to people's safety.
According to an arrest report, Bieber was spotted by police racing a red Lamborghini in Miami Beach last Thursday. The report also said that Bieber had "slow deliberate movements" as the officer spoke with him, indicating that he was impaired and under the influence of something. The singer also allegedly resisted arrest, and became petulant and belligerent with the officer, asking the cop, "Why the fuck you doing this?" as he was being arrested.
The incident sparked a media frenzy, and produced what is probably the greatest act of schadenfreude in the history of American culture.
In other words, people really hate the crap out of Justin Bieber, and want to steel-toe his little ass back to the Great White North.
A similar rallying call to keep Bieber from being deported has also hit the "We The People" project.
"The whole idea of Justin Drew Bieber getting deported, is completely unfair," that petition reads. "He doesn't deserve this...."
So far, that petition has only garnered 900 signatures.
Also, it's not clear what that petition would want the White House to do. It reads more like a sad Facebook status.
Bieber has had a rough couple of weeks lately, with police investigating him for some kind of egg-tossing incident among the many rough patches he's hit.
After posted bond following a court appearance in Miami Beach Thursday, Beiber sat on the roof of his SUV outside the courthouse and waved at his fans. He then took off to Panama to get away from it all.
All this just hours after saying "Why the fuck did you stop me?" to the Miami Beach officer that pulled him over.
So, apparently, we're going to see if being a complete douche is enough to get somebody deported. We're sure people have been kicked out of the U.S. for far less.
