Avril Lavigne’s ex & his pal dressed up as her & Chad Kroeger for Halloween

Deryck Whibley

Deryck Whibley did something kind of funny over the weekend. That is, he decided to dress up as his ex-wife, Avril Lavigne, for a Halloween party, and one of his buddies dressed up as Avril’s current fiancé, Chad Kroeger; or at least, Deryck’s pal dressed up as Chad when he still had that ramen-noodle looking long hair of his. Us Weekly even ups the ante by claiming that this is actually a photo of Deryck with his girlfriend, Ari Cooper, in the Chad costume. It sort of looks like her, but I’m not quite sure with the facial hair going on here, so I’ve included a photo of Ari with Deryck at the bottom of this post.

These days, Deryck doesn’t exactly get papped very often, but the guy had to know that, in the age of Facebook and Twitter, someone was bound to take a photo of his costume antics and post it on the internet, right? And that is exactly what happened. The photo really is rather hysterical, right? I mean, it’s a douchey thing to do when one dresses up like one’s ex for Halloween, but Avril is a massive douche herself (and Chad doesn’t score too poorly on the douche scale either), so it’s utterly permissible in the entertainment context. To make matters even more amusing is that, instead of ignoring the issue, Chad has taken to Nickelback’s Twitter page to defend his (as well as Avril’s) douchey honor with a “Hey Deryck, loved the costumes! We were going to dress up as you guys this year but all the parties had celebrity themes haha.

Avril Lavigne

Was that a burn? He sort of ruined it at the end with the “haha.” They’re all douches, and they’re all made for each other.

    Make fun of her all you want but you’re the one who married her dude. Your credibility is already down the toilet

    • Elizabeth says:

      I’m a divorce lawyer and when a client really bad-mouths their ex, I always think “You should know – you married them – and stayed with them for “x” years”. I mean really, take some responsibility. No one forced him to have a honeymoon in Europe paid for by her, live in a mansion in LA paid for by her. I’d have more respect for him if he owned up to having been 1/2 of a failed marriage.

      • littlestar says:

        Right on sister. It also looks like they are still holding resentment and feelings towards their ex when they do things like this. I will admit it’s funny though.

        And dude is so little next to his new girlfriend! I couldn’t keep that comment to myself :D .

  2. Korel says:

    Wow at the last photo- no comment. Avril sure knows how to pick em, doesn’t she? but she is not much of a prize either. What happened to that douche she was dating, Brody?

  3. cmc says:

    Whoa, his girlfriend is SO tall. She makes him look like a child.

    • Adrien says:

      Yeah, look at the photo above it, Deryk’s still taller than Avril. How short is Avril?

      • EmmaStoneWannabe says:

        Yeah had to do a double take too…guess Avril is like 4’6″??

      • Lizzie says:

        Avril’s 5’1″, so he looks like he’s maybe 5’4″ or 5’5″, and his girlfriend’s probably like 5’8″ and she’s in platform heels in that photo. She’s not THAT tall… i’m just imagining her trying to kiss him tho and it would be sooo awkward.

      • SleepyJane says:

        LOL @ “Avril is like 4’6″

    • HotPockets says:

      I think he is just really short, but he still looks like a man child.

  4. LittleFATMe says:

    It’s her, facial hair is easy to glue and look good. NOT easy or comfy to take off, lol. I agree – I love it! I want Reggie Bush to go Trick turning, I mean trick or treating, as KK this year!

  5. alons-y alonso says:

    Chad Kroger looks like the Paddle Pop Lion so I’m just going to leave this here: http://www.planetmaddog.com/images/paddlepop.jpg

  6. Lilo says:

    Am I the only one who finds it extremly sad and idiotic to make fun of your ex-wife, a person who you once REALLY loved? I guess someone did not quite get over her.
    Childish and pathetic, that’s what it is. Liked Chad’s reaction though…they are all douches however, including Avril.

    • MorticiansDoItDeader says:

      If I were Deryk’s girlfriend, and he suggested dressing as Chad and Avril, that would be a HUGE red flag that he’s obviously not over her!

    • Christian says:

      Everyone involved with this is a total tool, and I HATE myself for saying this, but the Nickelback guy had a pretty good comeback.

      • busy ramone says:

        Really? I thought it was pathetic. It seemed like he spent a lot of time thinking about what to say – and that’s all he came up with? Sort of like his band and their shitty songs.

  7. CamColty says:

    Hahaha that last picture is halarious!!! I’ve met Avril before in her very early success days (complicated) and she was a bitchy douche then so I can only imagine it got worse from there.

    • Jo 'Mama' Besser says:

      Ha. I live in the general area that can be described as the Avril-Bieber Belt and though I’ve never met them, I’ve known enough people who have and the stories are…not great.

      • Zombie Shortcake says:

        Lol, please tell us the geographic region making up the Avril-Bieber Belt.

      • busy ramone says:

        Justin is from Stratford, Ontario (he was born in London) and Avril is from Napanee, Ontario. They’re all in the Southern neck of the province. Check an atlas if you really want to know. Deryk is from Ajax, which is basically just a suburb city outside of Toronto.

        I’m from London and I’ve heard Avril stories too and she sounds like quite the idiot. Canada is a small place. :P

        I actually met Deryk once before he (officially) started dating her. We were backstage at a Sum41 show (shut up, my friend’s dad took us because he was a huge fan and that was the only place in the all-ages show we could get a drink) and I asked him why the fuck they hung out with her so much and I said what a loser she was…and he said to me DIRECT QUOTE “I dunno, she just like, follows us around”

        Even then he was ashamed of being with her, I don’t really know what changed. They both suck but the costumes were hilarious. Props to Deryk and his girl. LOL

      • Zombie Shortcake says:

        Lol Thanks Busy Ramone. I live in Windsor, so I’m going to safely consider it outside the Avril-Bieber Belt. That’s a wild anecdote re what Deryck thought of her, given that they did get married.

      • Jo 'Mama' Besser says:

        I wonder if it’s too late to respond.

        The gist of what I’ve been told is that JB fancied himself to be some kind of thug lovah who ditched school and roamed the streets. The Straford Truant Menace, apparently, who roamed the streets of Canada’s answer to Star’s Hollow.

        Avril was a bit older and from what I gather, she was a bit like those groups of kids who hang out in front of the city hall and bus terminal for HOURS after school every day. That’s what they did where I used to live, at least. You know you’re in a bit of a wasteland when the kids literally play in the traffic. You know how some people put on a disaffected affect and confuse generalized peevishness with insight and modern world alienation? She didn’t bother with school too much, so she made it official when she was fifteen. She started off country, Shania Twain saw her at a mall talent show and she was re-configured with the bratty punk princess persona of today. There you go.

  8. Bubbling says:

    I thought it was hilarious! Oh and btw I think that each household should have Shmit douche jar, genius thing!

  9. Samigirl says:

    I loled at all of it. The costumes, the tweet. I think it’s hilarious!

    • Ashley says:

      Same here! It’s especially funny to me that all these celebs are resorting to Twitter to fight back. Last night I was watching the Bad Girls Club reunion and it’s hilarious to see how much they start fights over things that were said on Twitter.

  10. Saphana says:

    the idea is great.

    but not if you were married to her before. not only because its really not classy but because hell you married her.

  11. Joanna says:

    how funny!

  12. Shitler says:

    I love Avril but I still found this funny

  13. snappyfish says:

    avril has a face that just begs to have a drink thrown at it.

  14. Victoria says:

    I’m mad I didn’t think of this costume idea. Too funny. Yes everyone douchey deserves to be made fun of

  15. Victoria says:

    I’m mad I didn’t think of this costume idea. Too funny.

  16. alexis says:

    Avril still dresses like a tween who thinks she’s hardcore. Yes I said it. Yes, twas bitchy to say. I’ve come to the right place!

  17. Lemonade says:

    None of these people are relevant. Avril’s schtick got old when I was in middle school and the name Nickelback is a punchline in itself.

    I think the costume is funnier than the response though lol

  18. Lauren says:

    I am Canadian, have relatives who live in Napanee and the above comment about her being a bitchy douche, is about the mildest assessment I’ve heard describing her “charming” personality. Basically, her Mother should be ashamed for raising such an entitled, rude, spoiled brat. People in town can’t stand her. She and Chad, completely repulsive, Kroeger are the perfect couple.

    • Zombie Shortcake says:

      Omg please dish more dirt. Like, what have you heard?

      • busy ramone says:

        Well for one thing, she publicly badmouthed her hometown in the international media even AFTER they like, named a day after her (sad and lame, I know…but come on, have some respect).

      • Lauren says:

        Well, she treats people that she knew before she got famous like they are dirt and annoying the hell out of her for daring to speak to her. Like a long time neighbour she’s known since she she moved to Napanee when she was 5 or 6 years old, greeted her with “welcome home” and was completely ignored. She just stared blankly at them and turned her back. She treats people who knew her growing up really dismissively like they are stalkers or out of control super fans rather than people from her hometown wishing her well. Napanee is small. There are only about 14,000 people and that includes surrounding areas. You can’t get away with that crap without it getting around. That town supported her and were so proud and she’s insulted it in interviews multiple times.

    • SP says:

      @Busy Ramone – to be fair, most people I know from Napanee bad mouth it.

  19. hellena says:

    You do know that the “pal” that dressed up as Chad is actually Deryck’s girlfriend…?

  20. judyjudy says:

    It’s a funny costume idea especially because they’re all so ridiculous but…dressing up as your ex and her new partner seems kind of pathetic to me. If my husband asked me to dress up like someone he used to be with I’d be kind of upset. Move on, dude.

  21. handsome man saved me from the monsters says:

    Hate everyone involved but this is hilarious. They win Halloween, and I like that the paddle pop lion didn’t take it too seriously.

  22. Adrien says:

    I thought Deryck’s gf’s costume was funny. Btw, Deryk has a dwarf’s face.
    Chad had the corniest response ever. Boo!

  23. stellalovejoydiver says:

    The first impression was that I found both of it pretty funny, but what makes it douchey is that it´s his ex-wife, and Chad is tweeting about his fiancé`s ex-husband, even though the tweet is even douchier because of its whole “Don´t you know who I am?” tone. Also I used to like some Sum 41 songs, so Deryck gets point for being the musician who sucks the least out of the three of them, Nickelback is commercially more successful but is also being considerid as the worst band of the world, that´s the kind of fame Chad Kroeger has, nothing to be proud of.

  24. HotPockets says:

    It’s pretty hilarious, but the best thing is that Chad Kroeger felt the need to burn her ex back with a twitter response implying that him and Avril are actual celebrities. That may be true Chad, but not in a good way. Jokes on you, your celebrities in the same way Kim Kardashian is a celebrity.

  25. SmokeyBlues says:

    Hah that last photo is basically what my husband and I look like when I wear heels. No lie. I like that she’s owning the height difference.
    Anyway this is petty as hell of him, but I love it.

  26. Toot says:

    Chad’s response was funny.

  27. Jessica says:

    Oh my, what a horrible little troll of a man.. yuck!

  28. Sisi says:


  29. Jo 'Mama' Besser says:

    We should all be thanking Sum 41 guy, I mean it.

    Since we all know that Chad ALWAYS takes the bait, it was all but certain that some response would erupt over this storm in a thimble. If Chad is on his Twitter account, his hands are too occupied to take a steering wheel or fondle the unwilling, so let’s appreciate this gift.

    I think the picture is funny and I’ll bet he earned this photo. I also think his girlfriend’s Chad costume is way less obnoxious than that hipster uniform she’s wearing in the last picture.

  30. claire says:

    Anyone Avril dates automatically becomes a douche in my eyes. I mean, c’mon, how are they not embarrassed that years later, she’s still dressing in the pink/skull and crossbones uniform? I’d feel like I was dating a poser teenager. Seriously, she should consider actually evolving into a grownup at some point.

  31. j.eyre says:

    I believe it’s utterly permissible because it makes us laugh – isn’t that the only requirement?

  32. UghInsomnia says:

    Avril has always looked like a typical suburban teenager that got thrown up on by a Hot Topic.

    All 4 of them are douchenuggets. No one wins.

  33. Nikki says:

    I can’t believe someone’s GIRLFRIEND would be ok with this!! Creeeeeeepy, kinda crazy and perhaps a little obsessive? Seriously what kind of head case dresses up as their ex? Get over it … Anything to stay relevant?? It baffles me

    • busy ramone says:

      This isn’t a normal situation. Lighten up, it was funny. If I was his girlfriend I would have been totally down with it (not that I would EVER date him, LOL).

  34. TheOneAndOnlyOnly says:

    Agree lemonade and i’ve heard the same Lauren from other posters – in this stewpot of douchebaggery and stench, I don’t know how is the worst – I’ll give it to avril because she was actually caught spitting on someone beyond the pale and utterly repulsive – THere was once a time when musicians had talent and were actually cool, very little today.

    • Lauren says:

      You are right. “Cool” is all manufactured now and not genuine like it used to be. Avril spitting on someone doesn’t surprise me in the least. Repulses me, but doesn’t surprise me. She’s low class all the way.

  35. GreenTurtle says:

    This made me laugh- I give Deryck a pass, seeing as she turned into a drunken loon and reportedly cheated on him near the end of their marriage. She’s also just so mockable. This girl is completely lacking in self awareness.

  36. Twez says:

    Well, he’s just a wee little Hobbit, isn’t he?
