Jimmy Kimmel Ignites War Between 'Twilight' and Justin Bieber's Fans
The two phenomenons that struck the world of entertainment lately are not in peace. During a special episode of "Jimmy Kimmel Live!", the fans of "Twilight" series rejected the idea to have Justin Bieber in the next installment.
Jimmy Kimmel set up a question and answer session as part of "Jimmy Kimmel Live: Twilight Saga: Total Eclipse of the Heart" which was pre-taped on June 14. One girl asked whether any of the cast also has so-called "Bieber Fever". Jimmy said, "We gotta get that Justin Bieber in the next movie," before being cut by the audience who booed and chanted "noooo".
Realizing that his audience is not fancying the 16-year-old, Jimmy quickly changed it to "OR, I was gonna say, we could all kill him". The audience screamed in approval afterwards. Peter Facinelli responded to Jimmy's idea, "But he would be the 'undead' and he would be in the movie." Jimmy yelled, "Exactly!".
Bieber has not made a comment about the hatred. But he tweeted on Wednesday, June 23 evening when the episode aired, "When u have the support of the greatest fans in the world. U just end up smiling. Thanks."
There are two sets of interviews in "Total Eclipse of the Heart". The more intimate one was done inside the studio with fewer cast involved while the bigger one, where the Q & A took place, was done in a tent set up outside the building. An exclusive clip from the movie which premieres June 30 in U.S. was slipped in the middle of the episode.
