Avril Lavigne has just gone on a Twitter rant in defence of Nickelback.

Her response comes after E News posted an article about how Donald Trump was the one thing people liked less than Nickelback.

"It's no secret pretty much everyone hates the Canadian rock band more than dog poo on a shoe," the article reads.

"Much to everyone's surprise, however, there is one thing people dislike even more than the band. We know, right? What could it be? A dead phone with no charger? Harry Styles with no hair? Ten thousand spoons when all you need is a knife?".

Lavigne, who was married to Nickelback's lead singer Chad Kroeger, tweeted the article adding "Hey E News and everyone writing these articles ... grow up ... this is extremely rude and uncalled for".


She went on to add that Nickelback had 17 No 1 singles and were "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," the singer wrote, adding a hashtag which reads "spread more love than hate".
