Of late, 20-year-old Canadian pop star Justin Bieber has been making headlines for all the wrong reasons. Things became worse when some concerned Americans demanded that he should be deported back to Canada where he belongs. However, despite the rallying calls for his immediate deportation, the whole idea has taken a new twist after it was discovered that he is no longer wanted in his native country- at least for now.
Bieber’s dwindling popularity in Canada was evident last weekend when he was booed by thousands of fans during the annual Juno Awards. Even though he won the Juno Fan Choice Award, the controversial singer did not seem to impress his fans like he used to back in the days when he was still innocent, humble and outgoing.
On Jan. 23, a petition was created to demand for Bieber’s immediate deportation after he was widely seen as a reckless, destructive and drug abusing fellow. The petition received more than 100,000 signatures and that was a clear indication of how most people were getting fed up of the Baby singer who coincidentally behaves like one. Under normal circumstances, when such a petition receives more than 100,000 signatures, it is reviewed by the United States government and a suitable response is offered within 30 days.
The petition further demands that apart from being deported, Justin Bieber’s green card should be revoked. But judging from the cold response he received in his own country last weekend during the Juno Awards, some Americans have started joking and speculating about where exactly he should be deported. Most Canadians on social media have made it clear that they have no intentions of welcoming the superstar despite being one of their own.
A comic video released by Dartanion London titled A Message from Canada: Don’t Deport Justin Bieber has since gone viral. The hilarious video mocks the recent suggestions that the singer should be deported back to his country. It also insists that if there is no other choice than sending him back to Canada, the American authorities should wait until he contracts laryngitis.
Laryngitis is an irritation or inflammation of the voice box that causes hoarseness or loss of voice. This clearly explains why Dartanion London suggested that Bieber’s deportation should be implemented only if he had been confirmed to be suffering from this condition. This way, the Canadian hitmaker would not be able to record more songs or perform the existing ones at a live concert.
While the annual Juno Awards went on as planned, Bieber was having fun with his entourage in Montreal. According to reports, he was spotted picking up three female clubbers at around 3am as he headed back to his room for a private party. Fellow Canadian music icon Serena Ryder had to pick the award on his behalf and defended him amid the roaring boos from the lively crowd.
“I think Justin is an outstanding musician and he deserved this award. He has been working tirelessly and we just need to support his awesomeness,” said Ryder.
If both America and Canada do not want to host Bieber, maybe he should try relocating to space. Aliens do not have a problem dancing to pop music as they instill some discipline in him. But for now, the Justin Bieber deportation dilemma continues.
