Avril Lavigne Call Out Mark Zuckerberg Over Nickelback Put Down

Avril Lavigne has lashed out at Mark Zuckerberg, accusing the Facebook CEO of bullying Nickelback.

Zuckerberg made a joke about the band in the advert for his artificial intelligence assistant Jarvis, who says there are “no good Nickelback songs” to play for him.

But the ex-wife of the band’s frontman Chad Kroeger definitely didn’t see the funny side.

Taking to Twitter, the Canadian star – who sparked rumours she was back with Chad earlier this year – said: “Dear Mark, many people use your products – some people love them and some people don’t.

“Either way, you’re allowed your musical opinion however, your jab at Nickelback is in poor taste.

“When you have a voice like yours, you may want to consider being more responsible with promoting bullying, especially given what’s going on in the world today.

The note sparked a hilarious backlash from Twitter users who never thought they’d see the day Avril would call out Zuckerberg.

One quipped: “Avril Lavigne vs. Mark Zuckerbger is a friendly reminder that 2016 isn’t over yet and there’s still plenty of time for more weird. ”

While another said her reaction was over the top, writing: “I miss the good old days when people could take a F**KING JOKE.”
