Nickelback singer Chad Kroeger has retaliated after being mocked by Sum 41’s frontman Deryck Whibley, or more specifically Whibley’s partner, model Ari Cooper. As reported by NME, in an attempt to dress in the scariest costumes imaginable, Whibley and Cooper decided to impersonate Kroeger and his soon-to-be wife Avril Lavigne.
Whibley, who was formerly married to Lavigne, dressed as his ex-wife while Cooper did Kroeger all kinds of favours by making the Nickelback frontman actually look good… kinda’. Once pictures of Whibley and Cooper dressed as ‘Chavril‘ hit the World Wide Web, Kroeger decided it was time for action, or more to the point, reaction.
Taking to his Twitter account, Kroeger hit back at Whibley, applauding the Sum 41 vocalist for his efforts before offering up a cheap shot of his own. “Hey Deryck loved the costumes! we were going to dress up as you guys this year but all the parties had celebrity themes haha! -CK”
Being told you’re not on the same level of the celebrity hierarchy as Kroeger and Lavigne, ouch!
Hey Deryck loved the costumes! we were going to dress up as you guys this year but all the parties had celebrity themes haha! -CK
