Sick of Chris Brown? Use Chris Brownout

Chris Brown is everywhere these days, it seems. He was caught kissing Rihanna at the VMAs recently, allegedly brawled with Drake at a New York City nightclub earlier this summer and was the topic of social media conversation last week thanks to getting an offensive tattoo. And anywhere Brown can’t be, Team Breezy is present, tweeting LiK3 tHiz and issuing death threats whenever they feel Brown has been slighted.

But Team Breezy will definitely go on the rampage when they discover the new Google Chrome app designed “to scrub the internet of Chris Brown.”It’s called Chris Brownout, and according to The Grio, it will allow Chrome users to literally block any mention of the Virginia-born singer’s name from their computer screens “permanently”. You can see how it will work here

The Grio also reports Chris Brownout was created by Aux Labs, or Aux TV, a Canadian national music channel that airs live concerts, has weekend-long tributes to classic albums – this weekend it’s Bob Marley’s “Catch a Fire” – and artist interviews. 

Apparently, Aux also provides a similar program for Nickelback, called Nickelblock.

The jokes write themselves.
