Avril Lavigne Calls Out Mark Zuckerberg For 'Bullying' Nickelback

Written by  Complex

2016 has seen a lot of very random rivalries, but this may be the one to beat. Avril Lavigne apparently wasn't too pleased with a joke Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg made at the expense of Nickelback, and so naturally she decided to take her anger to Twitter.

Lavigne posted a lengthy note calling Zuckerberg out after he had his new AI Jarvis claim there were "no good Nickelback songs" in a video introducing the Morgan Freeman-voiced product (check around the 1:15 mark). 

Lavigne—who was married to Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger until 2015—clapped back.

“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,” Lavigne wrote. “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. #SayNoToBullying #TheJokeIsOld #NickelbackHasSoldOver50MillionAlbums.”
