Avril Lavigne News: Singer Slams Mark Zuckerberg For Joke Against Nickelback [VIDEO]

Avril Lavigne may no longer be married to Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger, but that doesn't mean she won't come to the defense of his oft-ridiculed band.

Nickelback is often at the butt of people's jokes about their music, and it appears Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg has a similar feeling about the group, joking at their expense by saying they had no "good songs," in a video he posted which introduced his new A1 Jarvis, a product which is voiced by Morgan Freeman.

"Hey Jarvis, play us some good Nickelback songs!" Zuckerberg says in the video.

"I'm sorry Mark, I can't do that," the system replies. " There are no good Nickelback songs."

However, Lavigne didn't take kindly to the remark, and took to Twitter to call out Zuckerberg for it, telling him he should reconsider saying things that could be construed as bullying since he has such a massive following.

"Dear Mark," she wrote. "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't going on in the world today. #SayNoToBullying #TheJokeIsOld #NickelbackHasSoldOver50MillionAlbums xx, AL."

Zuckerberg has yet to respond to Lavigne.
