Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger arrives at the 2016 Pre-Grammy Gala And Salute to Industry Icons Honoring Irving Azoff at The Beverly Hilton Hotel on Feb. 14, 2016.

Avril Lavigne is saying "see you later boy" to Mark Zuckerberg after he made fun of Nickelback in the new promotional video for his home artificial intelligence system, Jarvis.

In the video the Facebook CEO asks Jarvis to play him “some good Nickelback songs” to which Jarvis replies, “I’m sorry, Mark, I can’t do that. There are no good Nickelback songs.”

Last night (Dec. 22) Lavigne took to Twitter to confront Zuckerberg for joking at her ex’s -- Nickleback’s singer Chad Kroeger -- expense.

“You have a voice like yours, you may want to be more responsible with promoting bullying, especially with what’s going on in the world today,” Lavigne wrote on Twitter. “#SayNoToBullying #TheJokeIsOld #NickelbackHasSoldOver50MillionAlbums.”
