Avril Lavigne Accuses Zuckerberg of 'Bullying' After Jab at Nickelback

Avril Lavigne (photosAvril Lavigne photos) is accusing Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg of "promoting bullying" after he took a jab at Nickelback.

Lavigne was married to Nickelback's lead singer, Chad Kroeger, for two years until they separated in September 2015.

The dig by Zuckerberg came in a video he shared to introduce Jarvis, his "digital butler" voiced by Morgan Freeman.

While demonstrating the AI assistant's features, Zuckerberg asked Jarvis to play "some good Nickelback songs."

"I'm sorry, Mark. I'm afraid I can't do that," Jarvis replied. "There are no good Nickelback songs."

"Good, that was actually a test," Zuckerberg smirked. "OK, how about just play some songs that our whole family likes."

But Avril Lavigne, who is still on friendly terms with Kroeger, didn't find the dig funny.

"Dear Mark," she wrote on social media. "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," she added the hashtags #SayNoToBullying #TheJokeIsOld and #NickelbackHasSoldOver50MillionAlbums.
