Taco Bell Vs Justin Bieber
Niccol was conducting a Reddit Ask Me Anything chat last week to promote the launch of Taco Bell's new breakfast menu in the U.S. when he made the comment about the popstar.
During the chat Niccol was asked when the new breakfast menu would be "coming to Canada." He then responded to the Reddit user's question with "When you take Justin Bieber back." Another user then responded, "OH S**T. I'm used to a different kind of Taco Bell burn." See a screen capture of the exchange here.
The Taco Bell executive's comment follows similar pleas to have Bieber returned to Canada including an online petition that attracted nearly 300,000 signatures and a reported billboard in Illinois prior to the U.S. and Canada hockey teams facing off in the Olympics which read "Loser Keeps Bieber".
