Axl Rose wants Google to take down unflattering pictures


Axl Rose has demanded that Google takes down several unflattering images of him.

The images have been used as part of an internet meme mocking the Guns N' Roses star's physical appearance, and it seems he isn't impressed.

Harvard University's Lumen Database lists at least 11 requests made on Axl's behalf since May 31.

The requests - which cite copyright violations - centre on the "Fat Axl Rose" meme. One of the images the rocker wants taken down includes the message "Remember the 80s? He ate them."

Google says it sends all such requests to the Lumen Database for publication.

The database shows Axl used a company called Web Sheriff to make the requests.
