Justin Bieber Publicly Apologizes For Japan War Shrine Photo

Bieber-war-shrine1(PCM) As much as stirring up controversy and trouble seem to go hand in hand for pop superstar  Justin Bieber these days, we have to think that his latest move was truly just an honest mistake, at least we hope.

Recently, Bieber made a visit to the Yasukuni Shrine in Tokyo which enshrines 2.5 million war dead, including Japan’s 14 convicted war criminals and also happens to be a war museum that defends Japan’s wartime aggression’s. Bieber posted an image of the shrine online with the following caption “Thank you for your blessing” and immediately Twitter and Facebook erupted with a ton of outrage.

China and South Korea in particular view Yasukuni as a symbol of Japan’s past militarism and consider visits there as a lack of understanding or remorse over wartime history. Chinese officials and others commented on Bieber’s images claiming he should remember China’s position on Yasukuni. Bieber claims that he only thought it was a beautiful site and only a place of prayer.

In his public apology to anyone he may have offended, Bieber posted “I was mislead (sic) to think the Shrines were only a place of prayer. To anyone I have offended I am extremely sorry.”

The images has since been removed from Biebers’ Instagram account.

The White House Has Responded To The Deport Justin Bieber Petition

bieber-petition

(PCM) It has been a few months since the petition to deport Justin Bieber back to Canada was submitted to the White House. The petition garnered 270,000 signatures and urged the government to send Bieber packing after his little crime spree that included egging a neighbors house and illegal street racing while under the influence in Miami.

Surprising many, the White House actually commented on the petition, but truly saying “no comment”. The following update was posted on the White House website:

Sorry to disappoint, but we won’t be commenting on this one.

The We the People terms of participation state that, “to avoid the appearance of improper influence, the White House may decline to address certain procurement, law enforcement, adjudicatory, or similar matters properly within the jurisdiction of federal departments or agencies, federal courts, or state and local government in its response to a petition.”

So we’ll leave it to others to comment on Mr. Bieber’s case, but we’re glad you care about immigration issues. Because our current system is broken. Too many employers game the system by hiring undocumented workers, and 11 million people are living in the shadows.

Well, there you have it!  Looks like the Biebs is here to stay..at least for now!

Canadians Will Get A Taste Of The Taco Bell Breakfast Menu If They Take Justin Bieber Back!

Taco-Bell2(PCM) I am sure you have all heard by now that Taco Bell has finally unveiled their new breakfast menu here in The States. So, far the highly anticipated new breakfast items have been a huge hit and the company has been receiving a ton of positive press.

To keep the steam going on the new launch, Taco Bell president Brian Niccol hopped on Reddit to take part in a AMA (ask me anything) about the new menu choices and more.

There were a ton of interesting questions, but one in particular really stood out. When asked if the new breakfast menu was only available in America and when it would be coming to Canada, Niccol’s hilariously responded ““When you take Justin Bieber back.”

Ouch! Burn!!  Snark points for Brian Niccol!
