Any way to block a specific ad?

Roku is already notoriously bad for showing the same ads over and over, but there is this one particular ad that is for a college system local to where I live that is so low budget and poorly written I literally cringe every time it comes on and I’m seeing it over and over and over again. I’m so sick of it. I know some apps have the option you can block an ad when it comes up so you won’t get it any more. Is there any options like this with Roku? I’m fine with seeing ads, even some that repeat aren’t terrible, but this one particular ad is THAT bad it needs to never be on my screen again. I’m using the Roku App on an Amazon Fire TV if that helps
