Pornhub has been sued again, the site is said to operate like a criminal organization


The largest adult video sharer and its parent company are accused of sharing videos about juveniles and women who didn’t agree to it.

In late 2020, the big Pornhub scandal erupted, which we wrote about in detail here. Due to the poorly managed content, the site received a lot of criticism at that time, which had serious consequences not only from the user but also from the business side: Mastercard and Visa no longer support the website, thus losing a strong financial pillar, which broke all previous viewership records at the time of the epidemic closures.

Another lawsuit has now been filed in California against the site and its parent company, MindGeek, alleging that Pornhub clearly benefited from videos that included victims of violence, sexual exploitation of youth, or human trafficking, as well as a mass of videos that were made. or the uploaders simply did not agree to upload it.

According to the official complaint, MindGeek is a criminal organization, “like Sopranos,” and lawyers are demanding compensation for the 34 people involved in the lawsuit and a guarantee that this will not happen to them or to “thousands” of other people in the future.

Incidentally, after the December scandal, Pornhub has thoroughly rethought how the site works, removed a lot of content, and now only allows verified users to upload it. At the same time, it has now been said in a statement that the case will be investigated because zero tolerance is applied to illegal content and all such reports will be investigated. At the same time, the statement that the company would operate like a Sopranos-like gang was called absurd and utterly insane.
