Here is what happened....
It's mostly the Chrome Adder... but we'll just stick with the color itself (because the same principle applies)
When you get a paint job for your vehicle, the most expensive is Chrome. So people would start buying Chrome and drive around with a sense of entitlement that they were 'richer' or 'better' than other players because they have the most expensive paint job. Or at least that's what other players thought those players were doing (as if someone can't genuinely like Chrome)
Instead of other players getting 'jealous' or being 'impressed'.. they chose to approach it with an attitude of "Chrome is a stupid color".
Chrome really isn't dumb, and is quite snazzy looking (if used right)..... people just say it's stupid to make the people who bought it feel bad.
Crew Color Chrome is quite awesome looking as well
Just thought people should know this.... because a lot of you out there don't even know WHY you hate Chrome.... you just hate it because it's the "cool" thing to do and everyone is doing it.
