The popular news website will also black out its site for 12 hours ( 8 a.m to 8 p.m.) as Alexis Ohanian, the company’s co-founder will be testifying Wednesday Jan. 18 before the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform about the underlying dangers of the proposed bills.

In a blog post, the Reddit Team said that “Instead of the normal glorious, user-curated chaos of reddit, we will be displaying a simple message about how the PIPA/SOPA legislation would shut down sites like Reddit, link to resources to learn more, and suggest ways to take action.”

Reddit is a social media news site, where the registered users submit content and vote up or down on it.
