LAS VEGAS — (12-07-20) — According to Visa and Mastercard, they are now investigating their business relationships with Pornhub after Nicholas Kristof, a columnist at The New York Times, wrote a recent op-ed alleging the adult entertainment network is carrying rape scenes and other footage of nonconsensual acts.

“It monetizes child rapes, revenge pornography, spycam videos of women showering, racist and misogynist content, and footage of women being asphyxiated in plastic bags,” wrote Nicholas Kristof of the New York Times. “A search for ‘girls under18′ (no space) or ’14yo’ leads in each case to more than 100,000 videos.”

Kristof alleges “several descriptions and examples of sexual assault were found on Pornhub, many including underaged girls and many posted onto the website without consent”.

In a statement to The Associated Press on Sunday, Pornhub said it is “irresponsible and flagrantly untrue” to suggest that it allows images of the sexual abuse of children on its site. Pornhub added that it employs moderators to screen every upload and that it removes illegal material.

Visa released the following statement….“We are aware of the allegations, and we are actively engaging with the relevant financial institutions to investigate, in addition to engaging directly with the site’s parent company, MindGeek.  And if Pornhub is violating the law, they will prohibit their card from being used on the site.” said a Visa Representative.

Mastercard added that “immediate action will be taken″ if the allegations are true, adding, “We are investigating the allegations raised in the New York Times and are working with MindGeek’s bank to understand this situation.

American Express confirmed to JRL CHARTS that their policy prohibits their card from being used on “digital adult content websites” while PayPal stopped processing payments to Pornhub last year.

Of course we have yet to see any examples of the alleged videos alleging streaming on the Pornhub Network by the New York Times. One has to wonder what the opinion writer of the New York Times’s agenda really is because Pornhub has never been accused of promoting child rape, Rape or assault videos of any kind.

JRL CHARTS will continue to follow this story and bring you updates as they become available.
