Tired of Hearing About Chris Brown…There’s an App for That!
Had it up to your overplucked eyebrows with reading Chris Brown headlines? Well, you may be interested in a new app which effectively deletes Breezy from the internet.
Developed by Canadian music blog AUX, Brownout removes all browser-based mentions of the polarizing R&B star. Sam Sutherland is the man behind the blocker:
“It is nearly impossible to go on the Internet without reading something about him, he is always doing something outrageously moronic. If he wants to get a tattoo on his neck that kind of looks like Rihanna, we are going to write about it. But at some point, it reaches Chris Brown idiocy saturation. All we had to do is build a frame where it recognizes the word and ignores it and literally erases it. You can see everything except his name and his face.”
In 2011, Nickelback were the targets of AUX’s ire. The site launched their “Nickelblock” plugin erasing all of the band’s online footprints.
