A Buckhead group is protesting pop singer Justin Bieber’s reported move to the community.
Bieber has shown interest in buying a home on Blackland Road in Buckhead, and the Buckhead Neighborhood Coalition announced on its Facebook page it is protesting his potential move onto the street. Bieber is currently renting a house nearby on Northside Drive in Buckhead.
The protest took place Monday morning, and though 230 people responded “yes” to an invitation to participate in it, only five showed up. Late it was determined the protest was a publicity stunt orchestrated by Rock 100.5 radio station.
A message on the page said, “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!”
The page has comments from readers both for and against Bieber.
