If he was a Domino’s delivery boy with a police record like Biebs’ a White House petition would not be necessary.
On Jan 23, Justin Bieber was arrested for drag racing on the streets of Miami while under the influence of alcohol and drugs. All of this on an expired driver’s license. He also resisted arrest, but why wouldn’t he? He, and many other celebrities, are under the assumption that they are untouchable because of their fame, money, and influence.
This is wrong. Any one of these charges alone should have prompted an immediate movement to have him deported. In fact a simple google search of ‘Deportation for (charge)” will yield many results and news pieces about people being deported for just one of these charges.
Bieber racked up three charges at once.
Beyond committing crimes, there are other reasons for America to spit Justin Bieber out like a metaphorical seed from a watermelon. He is a terrible role model for children.
Bieber has allegedly committed many other well-documented offenses against the general public. Egged his neighbors house, urinated into a restaurant’s mop bucket while cursing Bill Clinton (c’mon what do you have against Bill?), the Anne Frank would have loved me Twitter debacle, making his ‘entourage’ carry him up the Great Wall of China, abandoned his pet monkey in Germany, the list goes on and only gets more disgraceful as it does.
The shocking thing here is that it took an official petition to deport him to actually raise the possibility. Now the White House has to address it.
I wonder what would have happened if he was Javier Bieberez, a Domino’s delivery boy. Not a pop star just a regular guy.
If the police pulled over a Domino’s car and the driver was drunk, on drugs, had an expired license, and was drag racing he would have been fired, jailed, and would never drive again.
However, Bieber isn’t a delivery boy. He is a rich, famous, white person and what that means in America, apparently, is diplomatic immunity.
It doesn’t matter if you have legions of screaming fans, or enough money to pull a Scrooge McDuck and fill a swimming pool with gold coins; if you break the law you should serve the sentence.
Several celebrities chimed in after news of the arrest broke, here are our favorite responses:
The only crazy part of Justin Bieber arrest is that he was "popping anti-depressants all day." Anti-depressants take like 3 months to work.
