AVRIL Lavigne has accused Mark Zuckerberg of bullying after a new Facebook video slams her ex-husband’s band, Nickleback.

According to The Sun, the advert, for an artificial intelligence device called Jarvis, sees Zuckerberg asking for some good Nickelback songs to be played to which the butler replies: “I’m sorry Mark, I’m afraid I can’t do that, there are no good Nickelback songs.”

Mark then replies: “Good, that was a test.”

Lavigne, who was married to Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger or two years before their split last year, didn’t take kindly to the dig and lashed out on Twitter.

In an open letter to her fans, she wrote: “Dear Mark, 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.”

The 32-year-old started dating Kroeger in 2012 but they separated in September 2015.

Despite the split the pair have remained good friends.

Last month Lavigne was rumoured to be getting close to her good friend, Ryan Cabrera.

E! News reported the pair were spotted getting close while having dinner at Chalk Point Kitchen in New York City.

Zuckerberg has yet to respond to Lavigne’s comment.
