The poor interviewer had no idea what he'd just said

As an interviewer, it’s fairly common that a question you’ve asked comes across differently from the way you intended. It’s not usually quite as extreme as in this MTV interview with Avril Lavigne though.

The singer was discussing her decision to continue working with Sum 41’s Deryck Whibley after their split, when the interview asked her, unaware of the double entendre, “Are people surprised that you’re still so tight?”

He meant, of course, that she's still so close with Whibley. That's not how she took it though.

Lavigne promptly burst out in awkward laughter. The poor interviewer had no idea what he’d done.
