Avril Lavigne slams Facebook & Mark Zuckerberg for ‘bullying’ Nickelback

Avril Lavigne has hit back at Facebook and Mark Zuckerberg for ‘bullying’ Nickelback in a recent video.

This week, Zuckerberg posted a video to launch and promote new Facebook AI technology Jarvis – in which he made a sly dig at the Canadian rockers.

When Zuckerberg asks Jarvis to “play us some good Nickelback songs”, Jarvis replies: “I’m sorry Mark, I’m afraid I can’t do that – there are no good Nickelback songs.”

“Good. That was actually a test,” says Zuckerberg in response

Now, Lavigne has jumped to the defence of her husband Chad Kroeger’s band. In a Tweet simply captioned ‘Dear Facebook’ she wrote to Zuckerberg: “Many people use your products – some people love them and some don’t. Either way, you’re allowed your musical opinion however, your jab at Nickelback is in poor taste.”
