A petition calling for pop star Justin Bieber to be deported back to Canada has collected more than 100,000 signatures – triggering a political hot potato for Barack Obama.

Its passing of the 100,000 threshold means the White House must now respond.

The petition was launched after Canada-born Bieber, 19, was arrested in Miami after he was spotted drag racing. He was detained for drunk driving, resisting arrest and driving without a valid licence.

The petition reads: “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 nations youth [sic]. We the people would like to remove Justin Bieber from our society.”

Bieber and his management have so far declined to comment on the matter.
