Avril Lavigne To Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg: Stop Bullying Nickelback
Avril Lavigne won’t tolerate jabs at Nickelback, from anyone.
Earlier this week, Facebook co-founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg revealed his new AI home technology, Jarvis. In a promo video, Mark asks Jarvis (voiced by Morgan Freeman) to play some good Nickelback songs. “I’m afraid I can’t do that,” Jarvis replies. “There are no good Nickelback songs.”
So on Twitter, Avril addressed Mark directly. She calls his joke good old-fashioned bullying. “Many people use your products — some people love them and some people don’t,” her open letter reads. “Either way, you’re allowed your musical opinion; however, your jab at Nickelback is in poor taste.”
Avril signs off with a few choice hashtags, including #TheJokeIsOld and #NickelbackHasSoldOver50MillionAlbums. She and frontman Chad Kroeger separated last fall after being married for two years, though clearly they’re still in good terms.
