Avril Lavigne slams people who make fun of and criticise Nickelback
'Sk8er Boi' songstress Avril Lavigne took aim at E! News recently for writing an "extremely rude and uncalled for" article about Nickelback.
Lavigne married the band's frontman Chad Kroeger in 2013, but in September last year she announced that they were separating. However, the pair were seen at the GRAMMYs looking as though they had reconciled their differences.
E! News shared a feature last week entitled "Poll reveals people actually dislike one thing more than the rock band," which referred to Nickelback and the fact that they're often the butt of jokes online, but Lavigne didn't find it at all amusing. She tweeted:
"Hey @ENews and everyone writing these articles.... grow up. This is extremely rude and uncalled for. 17 #1 HIT SINGLES!!!! What an epic accomplishment!!!! @Nickelback is adored by millions worldwide !!! I've seen their sold out shows!!! Enough is enough!!! You can't live a positive life with a negative mind. #SpreadMoreLoveThanHate."
