Stars mock Leafs fans Justin Bieber, Rob Ford

The Dallas Stars PR team was also on fire Thursday night, adding insult to injury to Toronto by poking fun at both Justin Bieber and Rob Ford on the Jumbotron during the blowout win over the Leafs.

While he might not be welcomed back into the Chicago Blackhawks dressing room anytime soon, Canadian pop star Justin Bieber gets plenty of love from the Toronto Maple Leafs.

The Stars game operations crew threw up Bieber’s recent mug shot on the Jumbotron in the second period and drilled the joke home on both Twitter and Instagram:

The Bieber blast was followed up by a clip of Toronto mayor Rob Ford:

Remember gentler times, when opposing mascots would pull pranks on each other in little video sketches?
