translated from Spanish: Pornhub removed 65% of its videos for alleged distribution of illegal content

Today, pornographic content website Pornhub announced the removal of all videos uploaded from accounts without the verification badge, which equates to 8.8 million videos (65% of total content). This is due to an alleged distribution of illegal content within Pornhub that caused financial services companies such as Visa and Mastercard to prohibit their cards from being used for subscriptions and purchases within the website. From Pornhub’s social media they released a statement explaining the situation and ensuring that «community security is the priority.»
«It’s clear that we’re not being attacked by our policies or how we compare to our peers, but because we’re an adult content platform,» they argue. «The two groups that have led the campaign against our company are the National Center against Sexual Exploitation and Exodus Cry. These are organizations dedicated to abolishing pornography and sex work and banning material that they create ‘obscene’.» Comparing her situation to Playboy magazine, women’s rights and LGBTQs and sex education, the statement closes: «In today’s world, all platforms and social media must share a responsibility to go against illegal material. Solutions should be found with real facts and experts. We hope to have shown our dedication by being an example.»
