Buckhead Residents Protesting Justin Bieber’s Possible Move To Neighborhood
Apparently the same Atlanta-area neighborhood Justin Bieber is reportedly interested in moving to has caught wind of his supposed antics in his Los Angeles-area neighborhood – and they are protesting the pop superstar.
According to the Buckhead Neighborhood Coalition’s Facebook page, hundreds will take part in a protest Monday morning in response to the news Bieber wants to buy a multimillion-dollar estate there.
“As a community here in Buckhead, we have worked hard to achieve our goals and get to where we are,” reads one post. “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.
Please do not allow a child to ruin what we have worked so hard to obtain. Thanks for the support!”
Bieber returned to what he called his “second home” at the start of the month, to “[build] up positive energy” (he tweeted) following a felony vandalism investigation in California (for allegedly egging a neighbor;s home), a DUI arrest in Miami and his surrender on assault charges in Canada.
Said “positive energy building” has included partying at Vanquish Lounge with local hip-hop superstars T.I. and Jermaine Dupri; recording with them – as well as Sean “Diddy” Combs, T-Pain and Rick Ross; and at least one surprise pick-up hockey game with the locals.
Bieber actually got his professional musical start in Atlanta, catching the ear of resident R&B superstar Usher and Bieber’s manager, Scooter Braun. And at that time suburban neighborhood Alpharetta was his address.
And tomorrow morning, some of Buckhead is firing back.
