Justin Bieber. Where to start? There’s so much going on in his life right now, including the big move that he recently made. Back in February, Bieber started renting a home in Atlanta, Georgia from music producer Dallas Austin and will stay there for three months with the intentions of living in it while he searches for the perfect home to buy. Unfortunately for him, though, the residents in the neighborhood that he’s wanting to move into are protesting his ability to buy a home.
Buckhead residents have started a Facebook protest, and 250 people are already claiming they will attend the protesting event. On the Facebook protest page, the residents are stating that Bieber moving to their neighborhood won’t be good for their children. In one part of the petition they go so far as to say “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?”
The full event group description reads:
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 home owner down the street from this residence, one can assume many people will be contacting real estate agents soon enough.
The residents are also citing his recent DUI charge as one of the reasons that he shouldn’t be able to move into the neighborhood. Sorry about your luck Buckhead residents, but if people could get kicked out of neighborhoods for simply being charged with a DUI, then the whole nation would be a mess. Where would everyone live?
Moving to Atlanta may not be the best move for Justin to make. Being that he likes smoking weed, he’d be better off staying in California where marijuana possession isn’t punished nearly as harshly as it is in Georgia. In fact, if caught in Georgia with weed, Justin can expect to spend anywhere from one to 10 years behind bars.
In addition to Justin making the big move to Atlanta, he’s now fighting his DUI charge by stating he appeared to be under the influence because his foot was fractured. Maybe his foot was fractured, but the toxicology report that came back proving he was under the influence of alcohol, weed and Xanax gives prosecutors a strong hand in convicting him of DUI. But then again, it must be remembered that camera footage shows Bieber wasn’t drag racing, which could cause the whole case to be thrown out.
Justin Bieber has been looking for a home to buy in Atlanta, but residents aren’t happy and have started a protest.
