Axl Rose Doesn't Want You To See These Unflattering Photos Of Him

🎤 Welcome to the internet, we got photos and memes🎤

Axl Rose isn't happy with the internet right now. 

The frontman for Guns N' Roses recently filed multiple Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) complaints asking Google to take down unflattering photos of him that are online. According to the Associated Press, Rose used a company called Web Sheriff to file multiple requests citing copyright violations for photos of "Fat Axl Rose" meme

Below are a few examples of the photos and memes he's trying to remove, which mock Rose's weight using lyrics from some of his songs. The photo was taken by Boris Minkevich at a 2010 concert and published in the Winnipeg Free Press.  

The requests were found in the Lumen Database, which -- according to its website -- is a "an independent 3rd party research project studying cease and desist letters concerning online content."

The Harvard University database shows Rose's requests here, which reads, "Copyright image of Axl Rose. Please be advised that no permission has been granted to publish the copyright image so we cannot direct you to an authorized example of it." 

Unfortunately -- just like Barbra Streisand and Beyoncé's attempts before him -- Rose's takedown requests drew even more attention to his unflattering photos. 

The Huffington Post reached out to reps for Rose and Web Sheriff and will update this post accordingly.
