No Beliebers in Buckhead: Atlanta Neighborhood Protests Justin Bieber's Move

Forget the neighborhood watch group, block parties, and barbecues.

The Atlanta neighborhood of Buckhead won't be rolling out the welcome mat for Justin Bieber. Several residents of the community gathered near the "Believe" singer's possible new home on Monday to protest his move to their neighborhood.

The Buckhead Neighborhood Coalition, which is spearheading the protest against the Biebs, created a Facebook group to urge neighbors to join their cause and have coined the hashtag, #KeepBuckheadBieberFree.

While their Facebook group showed that 539 people would be attending the protest, only four residents showed up for the gathering, which started at 6 a.m. ET, according to Fox 5 Atlanta. The protesters held signs that read, "Moms Against Beiber" and "Keep Bieber Out."

The four members of the group told Fox 5 that they represented hundreds of their neighbors who didn't want Bieber to move into their community. "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," the group's mission statement says. "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 Atlanta Police Department told Yahoo that the protest did not require a police response. "There was a small protest this morning regarding Justin Bieber moving to Buckhead on Blackland Road. We had a couple of officers go by to check the status, but there were no calls for service regarding this event. By 8:15 a.m., there were no protesters on site."

The 19-year-old performer reportedly has his eye on a 16,000-square-foot, 7-bedroom mansion in Buckhead with an asking price of $10.95 million. Bieber's longtime mentor, Usher, also owns a home in the pricey neighborhood.

The community clearly lacks Bieber fever and, if the Canadian cutie does move into the palatial pad, it might be tricky for him to ask his neighbors to borrow a cup of sugar.
