Deryck Whibley and a friend dressed up as Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger for a halloween party, much to Kroeger's distaste.

Halloween is prime time to dress up to revere your idols, scare your friends or ridicule those that you may feel deserve it. Occasionally however some people can get offended, which is exactly what happened with Prince Harry dressed up as a Nazi a few years back, and more recently when Sum 41 front man Deryck Whibley and a friend dressed up as his ex-wife Avril Lavigne and her new fiancee Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger, reports the NME.

Kroeger retorted to the offence with a tweet via his bands Twitter page, saying: "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"

Lavigne was married to Deryck Whibley for three years, it seems their remaining friendship that she referred to in OK! magazine after their divorce has wained a little since then! Despite the fairly shoddy effort of Whibley's costume, other people make much more effort, particularly in halloween zombie walks that have taken over subcultures all over the world, particularly in cities such as Toronto in Canada and Bristol in the UK.
