BrownOut App Rids Internet of Chris Brown

It’s anti-Breezy gone wild!

From bar brawls to anti-domestic abuse propaganda, the R&B singer Chris Brown is having trouble getting people not to hate him lately. The latest non-love arrives in the form of an app, designed to wipe his name from Google searches.

According to the Google Chrome page for “Chris Brownout,” the basic purpose of the app is “to scrub Chris Brown from the internet. Permanently.”

A screen shot on the page demonstrates the app in action…

Blue and black-censored boxes block out any texts that reads “Chris Brown” and, in the search bar the letters are starred out.

Aux Labs, a Canadian music channel, developed the extension. The app page also gives credit to Greg Leuch and Roman Swietlik as the programmers at the helm.

(According to the description, though, Drake was not involved… How awesome would that have be?)

So far, anyone that has reviewed the app has given it a five-star seal of approval.

Aux Labs has also reportedly created a similar app for the rock group Nickelback.

The app news comes at the heels of Brown’s latest hate campaign when stickers on his album Fortune told customers, “Warning - Do not buy this album! This man beats women.” The trashed albums were featured in London’s HMV store.

According Perez Hilton, since the stickers, album sales at the store actually went up.

"We were as surprised as anyone when the stickers appeared,” the rep for Brown told Perez. “Obviously someone must have snuck in to put them on a handful of CDs.”

In addition to boosting sales, the anti-Brown stickers apparently helped spread the word about the album.

"I guess they got their point across pretty effectively ,” the rep continued. “With widespread coverage around the world, though, by the same token, quite a few more people now know there's a new Chris Brown album out."
