Pornhub deletes over 10 million videos after Mastercard and Visa cut ties

The site made the announcement days after Discover, Mastercard, and Visa all stopped accepting payments from Pornhub over concerns the platform was hosting thousands of child porn and rape video clips. In its defense, Pornhub is questioning why the child porn controversy is threatening its business when illegal videos continue to circulate on mainstream social media sites such as Facebook. However, the founder of TraffickingHub, Laila Mickelwait, has long argued that Pornhub often ignored the child porn videos on its site, leaving victims to suffer while it profits from the traffic.
