Avril Lavigne has hit out at Mark Zuckerberg for mocking her ex-boyfriend Chad Kroeger.
Avril Lavigne has lashed out at Mark Zuckerberg for ''bullying'' Nickelback.
The 32-year-old singer may have split from the band's frontman Chad Kroeger last year but that hasn't stopped her jumping to his defence when the Facebook founder mocked the group in a video about his home A.I. assistant Jarvis, voiced by Morgan Freeman.
Taking to her Twitter account, she 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. #SayNoToBullying #TheJokeIsOld #NickelbackHasSoldOver50MillionAlbums (sic).''

Craig Mandell has set up a Kickstarter campaign to ensure the band never grace the capital again.
Nickelback really are just one of those bands that people don’t like. Obviously the Canadian rockers have their fans, but on a whole we seem to hear a lot more hate than love for Chad Kroeger and the boys. But one Nickelback hater has taken matters into his own hands, setting up a Kickstarter campaign to stop the band from playing in London again.
Defiant: Chad Kroeger onstage
Inspired by the successful run of Foo Fighters campaigns, where fans raised funds to bring the band to their town, Craig Mandell set up the campaign to try and ensure that Nickelback were never seen in London again.

The 2013 Billboard Music Awards looked to be one of the most celeb-filled events of the year with some of the music industry's biggest stars making their glamorous arrivals.
'22' singer Taylor Swift clutched eight accolades to her chest as she posed on the red carpet having won Top Billboard 200 Album and Top Country Album for 'Red', Top Country Song with 'We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together', Top Artist, Top Female Artist, Top Billboard 200 Artist, Top Digital Songs Artist and Top Country Artist. Carly Rae Jepsen was another young female star to land a prize winning Top Digital Song and Top Pop Song for her massive 2012 hit 'Call Me Maybe'. Queen of Pop Madonna scooped up three well deserved awards including Top Dance Album for 'MDNA', Top Dance Artist and Top Touring Artist after her controversial 'MDNA' tour which landed her amidst a handful of lawsuits. There was no sign of letting up on the controversial front either as she donned hotpants, suspenders and fishnets at the Billboard event. Top Streaming Artist, Top Rap Artist and Top Rap Album with 'Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded' went to Nicki Minaj while Top EDM Artist was none other than David Guetta who brought his wife Cathy Guetta along with him to the awards show.
For many celebrities it's pretty much part of the job description to dress up as a character or an alter ego every day of their lives. Lady Gaga's interesting choice of attire can almost always be described as a 'costume'. On Halloween therefore, celebs always go one step further than the rest of us, and also deem it prime-time to ridicule their colleagues, friends and celebrity enemies. This year sees three of the best.
Firstly, Avril Lavigne's ex-husband, Deryck Whimbley, dressed up as her. Chad Kroeger, Lavigne's current fiancée, bit back on Twitter "Hey Deryck loved the costumes! We were going to dress up as you guys this year but all the parties had celebrity themes haha!" Although you think he's joking, the evidence is stacking up to prove that this year's halloween is celebrity themed!
Ellen DeGeneners on her eponymously named chat show 'Ellen', dressed up as Sofia Vergara. She wore a turquoise sequined number, with big false boobs and a massive false bum. "Happy Halloween. As you can see I put my pumpkins out," said Ellen, jokingly. Luckily, Vergara took it all in her stride and found the whole thing hilarious- adding her own spin by reprimanding Ellen in Spanish- which the audience loved.

Chad Kroeger is not a happy man. No, the Nickelback star, 37, took to Twitter to hit back at his fiancee Avril's Lavigne's ex-boyfriend Deryck Whibley after the Sum 41 man had weirdly dressed as his former love for a Halloween party, with current girlfriend Ari Cooper attending as Kroeger.
Still with us? Well, clearly unamused by the stunt, Kroeger took to Twitter to hit back, saying, "Hey Deryck loved the costumes! We were going to dress up as you guys this year but all the parties had celebrity themes haha!" Ouch. But a fair point. But then he's in Nickelback. Whibley, 32, and Lavigne, 28, split in 2009 after three years of marriage, with the latter going on to date Brody Jenner of 'The Hills' fame. Seemingly out of nowhere, the singer announced she was engaged to marry Kroeger in August though maintained she was still good friends with Whibley. She told Ryan Seacrest, "He's one of my best friends, and we work really well together and we stay in touch. I think we're very lucky. We've been friends for a really long time and we always will be family. We have a connection. Things are good. I'm really grateful for that."
Lavigne released her fourth studio album Goodbye Lullaby in March 2011.
Halloween is prime time to dress up to revere your idols, scare your friends or ridicule those that you may feel deserve it. Occasionally however some people can get offended, which is exactly what happened with Prince Harry dressed up as a Nazi a few years back, and more recently when Sum 41 front man Deryck Whibley and a friend dressed up as his ex-wife Avril Lavigne and her new fiancee Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger, reports the NME.
Kroeger retorted to the offence with a tweet via his bands Twitter page, saying: "Hey Deryck loved the costumes! we were going to dress up as you guys this year but all the parties had celebrity themes haha! -CK"
