Following Justin Bieber’s DUI arrest, a formal petition was created on the White House “We the People” website, requesting the White House to revoke Bieber’s green card. The petition has accumulated over 250,000 signatures, only needing 100,000 to receive an official response from the White House. The petition states that Bieber is a bad influence and that his destructive behavior has put the safety of Americans at risk. Although deportation is unlikely, the sheer number of people joining forces to show their dislike for Bieber is astonishing. Bieber is officially not wanted in America.
Bieber has encountered a slew of problems in his Calabasas, California, home. The home was raided by police after he was involved in the egging of a neighbor’s house, a prank that caused over $20,0000 in damages. In the State of California, damages above $400 dollars constitutes felony vandalism. This is not the only issue he has had with his neighbors; between Bieber and his houseguests, they have upset neighbors with his speeding Ferrari and excessive partying in the home. The recent discovery by authorities of drug paraphernalia seems to have been the last straw for neighbors. Bieber is not wanted in Calabasas.
Late last year, Bieber was caught in Brazil spray painting graffiti on a building as well as coming out of a brothel. There are also leaked photos of him smoking what appears to be marijuana, and underage drinking. In addition, there are multiple reports of physical altercations between the paparazzi and Bieber’s security team.
Bieber now has his eyes set on Atlanta, a city he initially moved to when making the transition from Canada to the United States. It is the city Usher, his protégé, calls home, and the place that was to prepare Bieber for stardom. With the slew of problems he is encountering in Los Angeles, Bieber feels Atlanta, with its large hip-hop scene and lack of paparazzi, is exactly what he needs. What he does not realize is that the residents of Buckhead, the prestigious neighborhood where Bieber has been looking at homes, are in an uproar. They have gone to the extreme of creating an event on Facebook named “Protest Justin Bieber Moving to Buckhead.” On the event page, the organizers name his recent DUI arrest as a primary concern. Buckhead is home to the likes of Janet Jackson and Elton John. It is official; Bieber is not wanted in Atlanta.
If his motherland Canada does not want him, and neither does the United States, a country he calls home, then where is Bieber to go? His net worth is estimated to have surpassed the $100 million mark, and is expected to continue growing. He is only a week away from turning 20 years old, giving him another year of illegal drinking and partying. What will happen when he becomes a 21-year-old multimillionaire? Surrounded by “yes” people who enjoy the luxuries of being acquainted with Bieber, and a mass fortune that is on the rise, Bieber is surely to continue creating news.
