Following Demi Lovato's issue with Disney, the channel is sparking controversy once again after airing an episode of 'Jessie' in which Debby Ryan's character pokes fun at Justin Bieber.

In the scene, Jessie is on a date with a celebrity. The two are interrupted when they spot a helicopter hovering over them. "It's the paparazzi coming for me!" her date says.

"Not necessarily," Debby's character, Jessie, replies. "There's a girl downstairs who looks just like Justin Bieber. They're probably just trying to get a picture of her." Um, we think Bieber's V Magazine photo shoot proves otherwise.

The January 6 episode made "Disney Is Pathetic" a worldwide trending topic on Twitter, and caused such a stir that it overshadowed the 'Wizards of Waverly Place' finale.

What do you think of the joke? Did Disney go too far or was it all in good fun? Let us know your thoughts in the comments. %Poll-72625%
