Miley Cyrus Slaps Avril Lavigne In Epic April Fools’ Day Prank: Watch

And the award for the funniest April Fools’ Day prank goes to Miley Cyrus and Avril Lavigne. The Bangerz diva posted a camp Instagram video of the pair fighting over who is more popular in Canada along with the caption: “fuck dat Canadian bitch Avril Lavigne”. (Hello Kitty cried when she saw that).

It was pretty blatant from the get-go that this was a set-up. Avril’s hammy acting is a thing of beauty — seriously, if they ever remake Dynasty she needs a role on the show — and Miley’s hilarious but probably accurate declaration (“I may not be Canadian but I am the most famous person in Canada!”) is super scripted. They later admitted the prank on Twitter. See the funny video and their tweets after the jump.
