Pornhub’s Instagram Account Pulled

Media Take Out Staff |

The official Instagram account for Pornhub has been removed for breaching the platform’s guidelines.

Pornhub’s parent company MindGeek is being sued for allegedly distributing child pornography.

“Instagram has made the right decision by cutting ties with Pornhub, and now joins Visa, Mastercard, Discover, PayPal, Grant Thornton, Heinz, Unilever, Roku, and many other companies in rejecting to do business with Pornhub, a site infamous for monetizing the sex trafficking and criminal sexual abuse of countless victims including children,” founder and CEO of the nonprofit Justice Defense Fund, Laila Mickelwait said in a statement to the New York Daily News.

“It is worth remembering that it’s illegal in the United States according to the Trafficking Victim’s Protection Act to knowingly benefit from a sex trafficking venture,” she continued. “Now, it’s finally time for Google search, Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure, and Reflected Networks to follow suit.”

Pornhub’s Instagram account had over 13.1 million followers and more than 6,200 posts when it was removed.
