Avril Lavigne Slams Mark Zuckerberg For "Promoting Bullying" With Nickelback Joke

Possible imposter Avril Lavigne called out Mark Zuckerberg for "promoting bullying" against Nickelback, and using his platform irresponsibly last night.

The band, which is fronted by Lavigne's ex-husband Chad Kroeger, was the subject of a recent promo video for Facebook's Jarvis AI system. In the video, Zuckerberg asks Jarvis to play "good Nickelback songs" to which Jarvis replies, "I'm sorry, Mark, I can't do that. There are no good Nickelback songs."

As a result, Lavigne tweeted out a note last night, calling the joke "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," Lavigne wrote in the misguided call-out.

However, undeterred, she ended the note with several hashtags, including "#TheJokeIsOld" and "#NickelbackHasSoldOver50MillionAlbums," and tagged several anti-bullying organizations in the tweet. Read the entire note below.
