Axl Rose Calls for Google Take Down Unflattering Footage
Axl Rose is demanding Google take down a number of unflattering pictures of him which were used as a part of an web meme mocking his bodily look.
Harvard College’s Lumen Database lists no less than eleven requests made on behalf of the Weapons n’ Roses frontman citing copyright violations since Might 31. The requests middle on the "Fats Axl Rose" meme. One of many photographs Rose needs taken down consists of the message, "Keep in mind the 80s? He ate them."
Google says it sends all such requests to the Lumen Database for publication. The database exhibits Rose used a British firm, Net Sheriff, to make the requests.
Neither Rose nor Net Sheriff instantly responded to a request for remark.
