Steven Spielberg Takes Pass On Having Burger Named After Him

LOS ANGELES (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — Steven Spielberg has a beef with the Carl's Jr.

The hamburger chain wanted to rename its charbroiled slider a "SpielBurger." It tried to deliver samples to Spielberg's office and even had someone leave a note on his car.

Spielberg's production company released a short video on its Twitter feed in which Spielberg said the burgers are "pretty good, but I'm passing... cease and desist; you can't do it. Sorry guys!" .

Carl's Jr. was excited that Spielberg responded and said he liked the sliders.

Carl's Jr. has several stores in North Texas.
