We’ve got good news for Chris Brown haters who want to wipe Breezy from their Internet altogether. Canadian music site AUX has developed a new app called “Brownout” that deletes all photos and news stories that have to do with the singer.
We love hearing a good anti-Chris Brown story as much as the next person, but you have to admit, after a while it gets a bit cumbersome. Why are we STILL reporting on his crazy antics? The app was developed after he got that crazy tattoo on his neck and was designed to remove all Brown-themed articles and images.
According to Digital Spy, producer Sam Sutherland said: “If [Brown] 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.” He added: “All we had to do is build a frame where it recognises the word and ignores it and literally erases it. You can see everything except his name and his face.”
AUX’s previous eraser app took out Nickelback (hoorah!). Which artist would you like to see erased from the Internet?
