Ah, how fickle fame can be when you’re rendered an Internet meme that draws its strength from insanity. Yup, the web is starting to grow weary of Mr. Charlie Sheen’s antics, as evidenced by Tinted Sheen, the Charlie Sheen Browser Blocker.
Yep, this browser extension for Chrome and Firefox blacks out all mentions of Sheen and his antics (i.e., words like #winning) from your Internets. Download it today, unless you’re one of the legions of folks planning to apply for his ad-sponsored internship position — or you’re following his famous Twitter account.
This little extension was whipped up by Greg Leuch, who also created a hack that turns your Twitter icon into an animated GIF, and JESS3′s Ex-Blocker plugin (which my Stuff Hipsters Hate co-blogger and I contributed to) and does basically the same thing as Tinted Sheen, just with exes.
Will you nix Sheen from your digital world?
