You know who doesn’t find Nickelback jokes very funny? 

Avril Lavigne. The singer and ex of Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger slammed Mark Zuckerberg for poking fun at the band in a new commercial for Jarvis AI, the Facebook founder’s new artificial intelligence assistant. 

In the commercial, Zuckerberg asks Jarvis to play a good Nickelback song. 

“I’m sorry, Mark. I’m afraid I can’t do that,” the AI butler responds. “There are no good Nickelback songs.”

“Good. That was actually a test,” Zuckerberg says. “How about just play some songs that our whole family likes.”

But Lavigne was not laughing. She accused Zuckerberg of bullying and wrote on Twitter: 

“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.”

Not to mention nearly 19 million likes on Facebook!

Lavigne tagged several anti-bullying organizations in her tweet. 

The “Complicated” singer and Kroeger separated in 2015 but never officially divorced. Clearly, she still has her husband’s back.
