Chris Brown’s … let’s just say “unique” place in the pop-music firmament got a little more interesting this morning, as Canadian music site AUX unveiled a Google Chrome app that allows users to hide every image and mention of Breezy on the Internet.
From Digital Spy:
Producer Sam Sutherland told CBS Local: “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.”
The app is more a cheeky psuedo-event than any real activism (AUX’s previous eraser app took out Nickelback, whose only sin is horrible lyrics) but it’s an illuminating one. Team Breezy already lives in its own digital world, where every mention of Brown’s name is an opportunity to loudly proclaim his decency and innocence. Why can’t Chris Brown’s detractors have their own bubble too? If it’s good enough for Fox News and MSNBC, it’s good enough for pop music.
