WHY IS THERE AN ADVERT FOR A HORROR MOVIE ON MY DASH TUMBLR I FUCKING HATE HORROR MOVIES I DO NOT WATCH HORROR MOVIES I EITHER END UP TERRIFIED AND HAVING NIGHTMARES FOR WEEKS OR I GET TRIGGERED INTO SELF HARMING MYSELF OR BOTH!! WHY IS THIS BULLSHIT ON MY DASH STOPPIT
is there a way to block sponsored posts?
Check out XKit and Tumblr Savior. Both are browser extensions that will let you block posts that match certain criteria. Lately all the horror movie sponsored posts I’ve seen have been tagged with #horror, so you should be able to block based on that, assuming that:
- It really is something Tumblr is requiring horror movie advertisers to do consistently, and
- you aren’t browsing from a phone or tablet.
But really, the decision by Tumblr to run ads for horror movies as part of the sponsored posts program is all kinds of fucked up. I’m sorry you had to experience the consequences of it.
