What's Up With Justin Bieber and That Onion Ring?
There's not much to it. The group is running a campaign to get more "fans" than Justin does on his Facebook page. Right now, the pop singer has over 1.5 million fans, and The Onion has just over 7,000.
According to comments on the current Onion Ring vs. Justin Bieber page, the original group had over 2 million fans, but was deleted. The one that's accessible now is a revival of the online effort, but what's the point?
Well, some think The Onion is all in good fun. There are similar groups on the social networking site, pitting the fried appetizer and other food items against musicians such as Miley Cyrus and Nickelback.
However, others really don't like these artists and are using the page to vocalize their thoughts. We think some people have gotten out of hand with their comments, which is why Facebook is deleting the groups.
