From their story (link above):
If you’re tired of seeing his stupid face in your news feed and no longer want to hear about how he’s turned domestic violence into a marketing ploy or how Dr. Drew is still making excuses for his inexcusable behavior, you’re in luck: There’s an app (well, a plugin) for that.
Chris Brownout is a Google Chrome extension that aims to “scrub Chris Brown from the internet. Permanently.” Says the team at AUX, the developer behind the project, “It’s become clear that [Brown] remains impulsive and unapologetic and isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. So, we here at AUX Labs took it upon ourselves to get rid of him.”
I love my firefox but this may very well inspire me to switch to Chrome. 😉
Not sure who Chris Brown is? Here he is summarized:
- beating up singer Rihanna
- fighting with rappers in public over the ladies it seems
- treating his new girlfriend with respect
- latest greatest tattoo exploit
and probably a bunch of other stuff but I just can’t seem to muster up enough energy to actually learn more about this utter piece of crap other than the aforementioned. And honestly, it should have ended when he beat the shit out of Rihanna. It’s absolutely shocking to me that despite having publicly assaulting a fellow celebrity and everyone being so “outraged” about it, he still has a career and a rather successful one at that. Disgusting.
Thanks for the Brown-out.
As a survivor of domestic violence, I feel like the internet is a little less insulting with this application. 🙂
