Avril Lavigne, the Suicide Squad of early- to mid-2000s Canadian mall punks, was pronounced dead by the internet in 2015, even though she was alive. Unfortunately, the “Sk8er Boi” singer has once again passed away; fortunately, she’s still with us. It’s not quite as out there as the Katy Perry/JonBenet Ramsey conspiracy theory, but one of Twitter’s favorite pastimes is spreading the theory that Lavigne died in 2003, the year after her debut album came out, and was replaced by a look-alike.

That would explain marrying the guy from Nickelback

Anyway, the speculation was explained, in great detail, by @Givenchyass (ah, if only Twitter had been around during the Paul Is Dead-era), who made a video comparing Real Avril’s 2002 hit “Complicated” (which, for what it’s worth, is still a jam) to Fake Avril potentially-racist 2014 single “Hello Kitty.”
