Petition Calls for ‘National Orlando Bloom Day’ After Punch Thrown at Justin Bieber

Who knew that Orlando Bloom would become such a national hero after throwing a punch at Justin Bieber?

Allegedly the altercation followed Bieber making derogatory comments about Bloom’s ex-wife Miranda Kerr. Gossip says Bieber had some too-close-for comfort interactions with Kerr that were part of her divorce from Bloom. After the comments and the question, “What’s up bitch?” Bloom threw his punch. The nation mourned as Bloom unfortunately missed.

The petition is addressed to President Obama:

On a fateful evening this July 29, 2014 actor Orlando Bloom fed the Pop Music miscreant Justin Bieber a knuckle-sandwich on behalf of the entire civilized world.

This is something you, as the leader of the free world, must reward with an executive order declaring July 29 as a national holiday honoring Orlando Bloom.

We compel you to do right by every civilized and cultured human being walking this earth by exercising your power for this most just of causes.

The petition has amassed over 1,100 signatures since being launched.
