Note to Justin Bieber: Some Buckhead residents flat out don’t want you.
So much that they’re going to demonstrate early Monday morning outside the Blackland Road mansion the newest bad boy of music reportedly has been looking to purchase.
Late last week, the Buckhead Neighborhood Coalition started the Facebook page, "Protest Justin Bieber Moving to Buckhead." According to the group’s mission statement:
"As a community here in Buckhead, we have worked hard to achieve our goals and get to where we are. Justin Bieber's relocation to Atlanta can be nothing but bad for our children, as well as the community. Some can't even let their children play in the driveway without fear; he has raced vehicles under the influence before. What's to say he won't do it again? As a homeowner down the street from this residence, one can assume many people will be contacting real estate agents soon enough. Please do not allow a child to ruin what we have worked so hard to obtain. Thanks for the support!"
On Friday, the Biebs tweeted, “I guess I'm an easy target for some. I'm still human. I will continue to meet hate with love. It's all about the music. Much love.”
While visiting Atlanta this month, Bieber was seen at the Marietta Ice Center in east Cobb County, as well as a Phipps Plaza movie theater. The Bieb’s Instagram account has a video clip of the pop star playing hockey with locals in Marietta.
Two of Bieber’s musical mentors, Usher and Scooter Braun, are from Atlanta.
A Bieber backlash has been growing recently as he’s had run-ins with police. A petition to deport Bieber, on WhiteHouse.gov, has gathered more than 262,000 signatures of those who want to see the singing sensation return to his native Canada, Patch earlier reported.
This winter Bieber has mostly made headlines for scrapes with police, including an arrest last month in Miami after allegedly drag racing. Court documents said Bieber was under the influence of alcohol, pot and Xanax when police stopped him, CNN reports. The 19-year-old was charged with assault earlier in the year for hitting his limousine driver in Toronto.
And then there was the report that a chartered jet carrying Bieber and his entourage from Canada to New Jersey was so full of marijuana smoke that flight crew members put on oxygen masks, CNN reports.
What do you think, do you care one way or another if Bieber moves to Buckhead?
