Justin Bieber Offered as Booby Prize to US-Canada Hockey Loser

Justin Bieber wasn't happy about a Chicago-area company's playful billboard joke last week that offered the troubled pop star as the booby prize to the loser of the U.S.-Canada Olympic hockey game.

Danny Zamost, owner of Command Transportation in Skokie, Ill., couldn’t resist poking fun at the troubled Canadian teen.

Zamost erected a huge electronic billboard last week ahead of Friday's Olympic hockey matchup between the U.S. and Canada, The Associated Press reported. The sign featured Chicago Blackhawks stars Patrick Kane, who is on the U.S. Olympic team, and Canada's Jonathan Toews. Sandwiched between the men was a picture of Bieber.

"Loser keeps Bieber," the billboard read, seemingly in reference to all the recent news about the singer being deported.

The 19-year-old wasn't too pleased with the billboard and took to Twitter to vent.

Bieber, a Canadian citizen who lives in the U.S. on a work visa, has had repeated run-ins with police in recent weeks. He faces possible felony vandalism charges for allegedly throwing eggs at his neighbor's home in California earlier this year. Last month he was arrested in Miami Beach for allegedly drag racing his rented Lamborghini and driving under the influence, and he was also taken into police custody in Canada three weeks ago on assault charges stemming from a December altercation with a limo driver.

Also this month, Bieber was detained at a New Jersey airport after he and his father, Jeremy Bieber, reportedly wouldn’t stop smoking marijuana on a private chartered flight.

Bieber's antics have spurred people to start a petition to have him deported back to Canada for good. As of Monday, the petition on the White House's website has garnered more than 260,000 signatures.

The U.S. lost Friday's Olympic game 1-0 to Canada.
