It's not often that U.S. senators weigh in on Hollywood gossip, but in response to a question during a radio interview Tuesday, U.S. Sen. Mark Warner said he'd gladly sign a petition to deport pop star Justin Bieber.

Organizers of the petition, on WhiteHouse.gov, have gathered more than 245,000 signatures of those who want to see the singing sensation return to his native Canada, likely after his recent headline-making ways keep landing him in hot water.

"As a dad with three daughters, is there someplace I can sign?!" Warner joked in an interview Tuesday with a Hampton Roads radio station. 

Here's the wording of the petition: "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. We the people would like to remove Justin Bieber from our society."

Warner later tweeted: "It's true: I'm not a #Belieber" with a link to the radio station interview.

If most were deported for bad behavior,most American would never get out or leave the United States.the only country that I can think of that treated it's citizens of color as bad as America had in South Africa.If the rest of the world deport peoples for bad behavior then the only place you would fine American would be in America.

It seems to me that this guy is on an intentional path to self destruction. Is he trying to shed his "kid" image or does he really have a problem. I think the next time he gets in trouble he should be committed to a mental health facility for evaluation. Maybe he can then get some help. Why do we have to wait until we read the headilne that he either overdosed or died in a crash?

How about signing on the line to deport all the illegal immigrants? Getting rid of one immature kid is not going to save this country any money....BUT, getting rid of the illegals will save us millions of dollars! Why doesn't anyone in the government have a damn brain! And if they do, why aren't they using it? Oh yeah, I forgot, they're getting all kinds of kickbacks and pork money for keeping the illegals here. Prove me wrong! Deport ALL OF THEM!

Could we just trade him in for Sass Jordan? A great looking lady that actually has some talent.
Dave Van Rosenberg February 05, 2014 at 03:18 PM
I would sign in a heart beat This spoiled brat has no respect for anyone or anything
Al Cloutier February 05, 2014 at 03:22 PM
The kid is smiling for his mug shot. All a big joke.

I never would have talen Mark Warner for such a pompous Bung Hole. If any of you at age 19 didn't get into some little trouble like this, I feel very, very, sorry for you.

Senator Warner has much more important things he should be working on. These cold, hard, indisputable "Facts" cannot be denied. From the FBI: Black males ages 14 to 35, commit almost 70% of all violent crime and 90% of murders in the US, while they comprise less than 4% of the actual population. Many of them also spawn from 20 to 30 illgetimate potential little 7/11 robbers, hookers, drug addicts, rapists, drug dealers, and murderers, by age 28 or 30 with multiple, underage, unwed, more than willing sexual partners with taxpayer funded welfare paying for it all while they stand around on the corners getting drunk on Colt 45 malt liquor, high on killer weed, down on heroin, up on PCP, ripped on angel dust, zipped on crystal meth, zooped on Oxycontin, bimmped on schrooms, and bragging about it. It's, "Time to take America back from the animals."
none of your business February 05, 2014 at 05:06 PM
Unfortunately, it will never happen. I believe it should or he will end up killing one or more innocent people. I wish we could deport all drunk drivers, even those born here. Let's create an island of misfits. Anyway, the music industry will save this little creep because of the all the profits involved.
Charles Schwartz February 05, 2014 at 05:23 PM
There is no legal reason to deport him, so stop the grandstanding.
Judy Robinson February 05, 2014 at 05:34 PM
Why is he just a "kid" that needs to grow up, but people are calling for death for the boston bomber? I am in no way defending the bomber, but they are the same age. Why is he a man, and Beiber is a kid. When do you become a man, when you kill someone? I realize beiber has really not caused any physical harm yet, but are you still going to defend him when he does, because you like his so-called music.

What a waste of time and energy. This kid needs professional help and therapy, not hatred. His early success went to his head, and he needs to come back to earth, work harder, play less, and keep grounded. In his interviews in the past he spoke about the need to stay grounded, but he did not follow his own advice. He needs professional help. It was better when teh legal age of adulthood was 21 years. It was changed due to teh Vietnam War, as kids from 18 years were drafted and rightly believed if they could be sent to die, they should have a right to vote. The problem is that the judgment of an 18-21 year old is not generally very good, and their brains are not fully developed. You have to be 21 to drink in most places, so it should also be the age of legal adulthood, with the one exception that if you join the military, you automatically have the right to vote, or something along those lines. 19 is not a responsible age, as demonstrated by Justin and many, many others.

any illegal, lpr, conditional resident or a legal visitor who commits a felony who has been in this country less than 5 yrs is subject to deportation. this punk needs to go back to his home country.
Dean Lawson February 05, 2014 at 09:17 PM
Aren`t there more important things the senator should be looking at?
Bea Wiest February 05, 2014 at 09:23 PM
I am a mom of a son who had troubles starting at 14 years old and it didn't end until 31. Drugs, jail, prision, strip clubs and was just a mess. I would like to see Justin's parents to step up, get serious to get this young man help right away!! I would hate for him to go through what my son went through and what it did to our family. Justin is still young and needs serious help NOW!!! or elso his life will be terrible or he could die! I am mixed about the deportation, yes he is not a good person for kids to look up to and he is causing trouble but on the other hand he is 19 has to much money at his control which should end ASAP! and he deserves a chance to redem hinself and go to rehap and if the at doesn't happen then yes, go home Justin!!!!
Gregory Urbach February 05, 2014 at 10:05 PM
Send him home, we have enough drug-fueled celebrities in this country already.
Rolland Trickett February 06, 2014 at 01:21 AM
Are we still on the petition B.S.This petition is a JOKE.The idiot who posted it anonymously wants his/her 15 minutes of fame.First of all there is NOT going to be any deportation.Since when does the U.S. deport someone for a DUI,or drag racing???WTF???Are you f**king stupid!!??It doesn't matter whether you have 100,000 signatures or a million signatures.The crimes are not serious at all.They are misdemeanors that about 60% of all americans,and foreign people commit every year.If Bieber wasn't a celebrity,this incident wouldn't even be a blip of anyone's radar.Sounds like this petition was made on hatred.Not concern for anyone's well being.Read it.Really read it.Read between the lines."We the People"Did this person take a national poll of some kind that I was not aware of?Who is this "We" that this person is talking about?Everyone,or a handful of brainless haters?.Then there is the next part of it."Wrongly represented in the world of pop culture".This statement makes absolutly no f**king sense at all.Are we suddenly going to protest anything and everything that is pop culture?or part of it?The next statement."Dangerous,reckless,destructive,and drug using."Well drag racing is dangerous,and reckless,not necessarily destructive.Unless you plan of destroying the cars involved.When you look at all of the crime committed in the U.S. every year,all of the murders,rapes,robberies.etc.etc.and compare them to the minor league bullshit the Bieber has done,then you will have earned the right to say what is dangerous,reckless,and destructive.As far as drugs go.Who hasn't smoked weed?C'mon..let's be serious for just a minute.Weed.legalized in I think 20 states now.Not sure."Threatening the safety of our people".Well drag racing does that,and so does a DUI.But,"Our People" is not everyone in the U.S.!But I can cut a little slack on this one.Because this part is true."Terrible influence on our nation's youth".This statement I find REALLY funny.ALL CELEBRITIES influence all of us in some ways or another.Music is sold primarily to the young people.What kind of influence are we talking about here?Are video games a bad influence to everyone who plays them?No they are not.Is sex and violence on TV and movies a bad influence?In some cases,yes.But we are intelligent enough(hopefully) to know the difference between what is real,and what is fantasy.Are certain music acts,rock acts a bad influence?If you are mentally unstable then you probably should not be engaging in any of the above.Finally,"Removed from society".Technically you can remove people from society in one of two ways.Incarceration,or Death.Moving them from one place to the other will not do.Sorry.And a final message to Mark Warner.You sir need to mind your own business and concentrate on the things that you were elected to do..Not worry about the actions of a 19 ,or 20 year old musician(Bieber will be 20 on March 1).There are more things to worry about.Like our f**ked up government.

Their are ton's of criminals that should be deported before ole Beiber. This is the silliest movement in a long time. Way to screwed up priorities.
Barbara Hartman February 06, 2014 at 07:03 AM
Let the kid go to jail and learn from his mistakes like everyone else. I can't believe a Senator is jumping on THIS bandwagon when there are so many REAL issues going on in America. I agree with the above people, Jackie and Roland, etc. The sad thing is that our government officials don't give a hoot about us either. They have the power. I can't believe that they can not see Obamas strategy and how he conveniently placed people in positions, so he could be supported, to force America into Socialism, better yet, Dictatorship. What really sucks, is the fact that people that see these posts may agree, but they don't reach the people that need to see them and there isn't enough resistance frpm "The People" to impeach him and save America. I will leave you with one thought....When everyone realizes their Obamacare Insurance will be paid by the government IF you "financially Qualify", They will quit their jobs and live off the government...Then what?
Jack Rayment February 06, 2014 at 07:36 AM
Obama smokes weed, can he go too?
Dan Crabtree February 06, 2014 at 10:47 AM
the bebe has done went gansta on america.. deport him..
Dan Crabtree February 06, 2014 at 10:49 AM
oh but first deport some 20 million mexican and south american illegals first...
Barry A Clarke` February 06, 2014 at 01:24 PM
On a recent flight, Justin Bieber reportedly smoked lots of pot and harass the flight attendant. This little twerp not only needs to be deported, but “never” allowed to fly again and that means in more than one way……………..
Garry Carlson February 06, 2014 at 01:27 PM
Don't you people remember the "Hollywood Publicity Stunt" of yesteryear? Everything you read about Bieber is a crafted stunt to gain free publicity. Don't believe a word of it! This guy got a nice donation for his re-election. These stunts are designed specifically to gain attention at this point in time.
James Miller February 06, 2014 at 01:36 PM
And his cousin Ted Cruz with him.
