Criticizing Nickleback is apparently bullying

Or so says Avril Lavigne thinks, this past week she lost her shit on social media after the owner of Facebook Mark Zuckerberg a rather tame joke about Nickleback when he was showcasing his automated home system called “Jarvis” a digital butler voiced by Morgan Freeman. In the ad, Zuckerberg asks Jarvis to “play us some good Nickelback songs.” After an extended pause, Jarvis replies “I’m sorry Mark, I’m afraid I can’t do that … there are no good Nickelback songs.” Ragging on Nickelback is a harmless national pastime. It’s the modern equivalent of making blond jokes. Even Nickelback makes jokes about Nickelback.

So after watching the video and hearing the joke, this is what Avril considers bullying? She really is Canadian, isn’t she. She also tagged a wide variety of anti-bullying organizations in her iPhone’s Notes app and sent to all of her 20 million followers:


“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.” Kind of irresponsible if you think about it, there are many reasons to tag anti-bullying organizations, calling your husband’s band shit is not one of them. Bullying is wrong don’t get me wrong. But let’s save our efforts for actually bully-victims, and not Canadian primadonna’s who dislike people making fun of her husband’s band.
