Avril Lavigne has hit back at Taylor Swift after she liked a Tumblr post implying that other artists aren't as friendly with their fans as Swift. See the post and Avril's respone below.

A series of photos showing Avril Lavigne, Kanye West, Katy Perry and Britney looking miserable with fans was contrasted with images of Swift joyfully embracing various fans. Swift liked the post which appeared on Tumblr.

See the post and Avril Lavigne repsonse on Twitter below. 

The picture of Avril Lavigne appears to be from her South American tour last year, the singer charging £250 for meet and greet tickets where fans were kept at arms length for pictures.

Twitter jabs have a tendency to snowball very quickly, so we'll soon find out if Taylor Swift feels inclined to respond to Avril's criticism.

Avril Lavigne also filed a lawsuit against a gig streaming website last year, claiming that the company owed her $375,000.

  • Her dead-eyed dancers: Oh, joy. Never since Gwen Stefani and her poor Harajuku Girls has a group of Asian women be so dumbed down, made to look indentikit and paraded around as a white singer's accessory. They continue to look like, well, dolls for the remainder of the video, in comparison to Avril's SPUNKY! LIVELINESS! AND QUIRKINESS!

  • Every single bit posing with the bloody guitar: This woman is 29 years old.

  • TEEHEE, SUSHI!: Clapping and giggling with excitement when given a tray of sushi - all of these things are TOTALLY Japanese (the only thing that's missing is the anime). It's like a video director being given a brief for a French-themed clip and filling it with baguettes, onions and striped tops. Did the researcher ever get past simply letting Google autofill after the word 'Japan'?

  • When she acts like the Queen: There's a particularly irritating segment when Avril swans around, waving to her fans (…) like she's transformed their monotonous, black-and-white, Western-starved world with one single hand gesture. In reality, she was probably waving at one big ol' tumbleweed. :(

  • Poor Monki: Here we see Avril wearing those suspender tights we briefly and regrettably flirted with wearing in 2010. In the background you can see popular Swedish outfitters Monki, who never asked for this product placement.
