STATEMENT – Terry Crews is Right: Pornhub Must be Defunded

Washington, DC (July 15, 2020) – The National Center on Sexual Exploitation (NCOSE) commends actor Terry Crews for calling on Pornhub to be defunded.

“It takes courage to publicly state that there are major problems with the largest pornography website’s existence, and we commend Terry Crews for using his influence to call on Pornhub to be defunded,” said Dawn Hawkins, senior vice president and executive director of the National Center on Sexual Exploitation.

“The case against Pornhub is strong; over 1 million people have demanded to shut Pornhub down, and even a U.S. Senator has called on the U.S. Department of Justice to investigate Pornhub for its ‘alleged involvement in videos of women and children being raped and sex trafficked.’

“Pornhub – which requires no legitimate forms of age-verification from users who are uploading content – ultimately is fueling demand for sexual abuse material and putting lives at great risk. It is past time to shut down Pornhub.”
