Antoine Dodson's Sex Offender iPhone App Uses Augmented Reality to Find the Creeps


"Are you still hiding yo wives, hiding yo kids and hiding yo husbands?" asks Antoine Dodsonof bed intruder fame, oblivious to the fact he's using his sister's misfortune to shill this $2 sex offender augmented reality app.

It may sound like a joke, but the app is real and actually works. Well, I assume it works—I haven't downloaded it myself—but developer BeenVerified.com has used its background checker database as the basis for the augmented reality app, which displays red dots when in the proximity of known sex offenders' locations.

5 per cent of the sales are being donated to the Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network (RAINN), and the app's available for both iPhone and Android. You'd have to be pretty paranoid to download it, but I guess for some it's a valuable tool to add to their apps-toolbox if they're concerned about some neighbours.

This guy is probably making millions off of this stuff. He was on the BET awards singing bed intruder song.

This is an ingenious app. If I was teenage girl I would definitely get it... but I'm a dude so I just walk around with a knife in my pocket. I'll stab any creepy pedo' who comes after me.

This is a pretty useful looking tool.

Erroneous Maximus said...

Ok so he's clearly a degenerate. He is making the best out of something bad that happened to his sister though, and really capitalizing on his annoying personality, so that's good for him.

God, I love Antoine Dodson. He's fully embraced his celebrity and you can tell he doesn't take any of it seriously, he's living a fun little dream right now.

Hopefully he has some talent or appeal with someone, I'd actually like to see more of the guy. Here's to Dodson having a career that lasts longer than 15 minutes.
