It happened to Nickelback before. Now, it looks like Chris Brown is facing some serious digital opposition as the same website, Toronto-based AUX, has launched a new app called ‘Brownout’ that removes all mentions of Chris Brown from the internet. It currently only works in Google Chrome, but you can already download it from AUX.TV. In a conversation with CBS Local, AUX online producer Sam Sutherland said about the app:

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.”
