Avril Lavigne may have moved on from one busted-haired musician that won’t go away to another. But that doesn’t mean she won’t stand up and defend Nickelback’s honor when someone takes a dump on them. I know, “honor” was a weird choice of word to describe what Nickelback has.
Avril Lavigne has slapped at Mark Zuckerberg and the Facebook team for making fun of Nickelback in a recent commercial. Facebook has launched a Siri-like AI called Jarvis, voiced by Morgan Freeman and based partially on J.A.R.V.I.S. from Iron Man. Mark Zuckerberg starred in the launch video, which was a perfect casting choice, since Mark Zuckerberg is the closest thing we have to a full-human robot. Mark Zuckerberg’s operating system must have recently been upgraded to include a comedy algorithm; at the 1:10 mark he attempts to bring the LOLs by trolling the hell out of Nickelback.
I’ll admit, that was pretty funny of Mark Zuckerberg. Although if he really wanted to poke at Nickelback, he would have had Jarvis programmed to respond: “That depends, Mark. Are you currently being arrested for drunk driving in Prince Edward Island?”
But Avril Lavigne wasn’t laughing and is never laughing when it comes to Nickelback hate. Shortly after Facebook roasted Nickelback, Avril opened up her Notes app and let Mark and Facebook know she’s not here for their Nickelbullying.

Avril is so done with the “Nickelback is the music industry’s wettest shart” jokes, and I get that. But what she doesn’t understand is that Nickelback has transcended from merely a crappy Canadian band to a word that conveys pure awfulness in any language. Your legs could give out on you while hiking in Machu Picchu and if tell your Sherpa “Um…Nickelback“, I’m pretty sure they’ll respond with an empathetic nod and an offer to take a break. I’m sorry Avril, but it’s a word of the world now!
