As almost everyone with access to any sort of electronic communication device now knows, Justin Bieber has finally been arrested. On January 23, the “troubled” pop wunderkind had a less than wonderful day when he was busted in Miami for drunk driving, drag racing, and resisting arrest. Yikes! What will Selena Gomez say? Actually, at this point, no one cares about the former Disney princess’ opinion because on Twitter, the rest of the American public is saying plenty. In fact, the seeds of what will no doubt eventually become a nasty Twitter war are already being sown by true Beliebers expressing support for their beloved JB “no matter what”, and haters clamoring for his expulsion from the U.S.A. Ouch! Of course, none of that is particularly surprising. Fans will be fans, and haters will hate. What is interesting is the fact that the haters are reportedly winning.
“#DeportBieber is trending higher than #FreeBieber, I think it’s time,” one non-Belieber gloated.
“I smell a Britney Spears style meltdown coming,” predicted another, “#DeportBieber and let Canada deal with his shenanigans.”
“It’s time for the US to make a statement,” declared a third. “We can’t allow foreign criminals to cause mayhem in our beloved country. We need to #DeportBieber”
“Illegal immigrants can stay,” ranted another. “Deport Justin Bieber”
Others aimed their comments at Justin’s fans.
“#WeWillAlwaysSupportYouJustin? Good to know. You’ll support him when he finally kills somebody. #DeportBieber,” was yet another hater’s sobering comment.
So, there you have it. Of course, Justin’s eventual fate is now in the hands of the courts, but what do you think? Has JB become a public enemy? Should he be removed from the U.S.?
