Avril Lavigne Posts Angry Note To Mark Zuckerberg For Making Fun Of Nickelback

Avril Lavigne is now in a fight with Mark Zuckerberg for some reason.

As far as celebrity feuds go, 2016 was paradise.

Kim Kardashian and Taylor Swift, Nicki Minaj and Taylor Swift, Taylor Swift and Demi Lovato, Blac Chyna and Rob, Justin Bieber and himself, plus about a billion other beefing celebs threw down this year on Twitter, in songs and occasionally in real life.

With just nine days to spare until 2017, we may have just witnessed this year’s most random celebrity feud thanks to an off-hand comment during a Facebook video and Avril Lavigne’s ability to screenshot stuff on her phone.

This all started after Mark Zuckerberg posted a video to Facebook about an AI system he built in his house named Jarvis.

Toward the end of the video, Mark asks Jarvis to play some good Nickleback songs, to which Jarvis replied,

I’m sorry, Mark. I’m afraid I can’t do that. There are no good Nickelback songs.

After, Mark jokes he was just testing Jarvis. Granted, this maybe wasn’t the most original bit idea, as Nickleback jokes are about as funny as George Bush jokes at this point, but hey, we’re talking about the guy who invented Pokes, not Chris Rock. God bless Zuck for trying.

Avril Lavigne didn’t really appreciate the crack at her ex Chad Kroeger’s band, though.

She tweeted a note she made on her phone directed at Facebook’s Twitter account and Mark Zuckerberg.

♬ Look at this Screenshot / Zuck really hurt Avril a lot ♬

Avril Lavigne's tweet to Mark Zuckerberg

Twitter

The letter reads,

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.

xx,
AL

Zuckerberg hasn’t responded, so it looks like this beef has sort of quickly died.

Think some random duo will top this before the end of the year? I’m looking at you, Celine Dion and Malia Obama.
