Avril Lavigne to wed Nickelback’s Chad Kroeger, Twitter opts to speak now and not hold its peace

Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger, lead singer of the simultaneously successful and reviled band Nickelback, are getting married. The couple just met in February and got engaged earlier this month, according to the Associated Press.

This is the second marriage for Lavigne, 27, who filed for divorce from her first husband, Sum 41’s Deryck Whibley, in 2009 and finalized the split in 2010. It’s the first marriage for Kroeger, 37. And their impending nuptials is an opportunity for social media to explode with reactions to the union of Canadian singers who rock hard and are too rebellious to care what you think, okay?

Seriously, when the news came out last night, it almost broke Twitter . Aw, guys, why’d you have to go and make things so complicated?

Naturally, those Twitter reactions range from congratulatory to snarky to just plain hilarious. (The prevailing sentiment, to quote another Lavigne song, seems to be: “Hey, hey. You, you. I don’t like your (potential) husband.”)

Here are just a few of the best responses so far.
