Pornhub/MindGeek Investigation

 
Defend Dignity
May 3, 2021

Pornhub & its parent company MindGeek are under investigation by the House of Commons Ethics Committee. Pornhub has hosted & profited from videos of egregious crimes such as rape, sex trafficking, CSAM & non-consensually shared content. Advocates and survivors of sexual exploitation have been exposing Pornhub’s criminal activities and now Parliament is acting!

In February, 104 survivors & 525 NGO’s from 65 countries called on the Canadian government to encourage the RCMP to launch a full criminal investigation. In March, over 70 parliamentarians also called on the RCMP to act.

Action Steps

You can stand with survivors & advocates!

  1. Copy & paste the tweet(s) to Justice Minister David Lametti, Public Safety Minister Bill Blair, & RCMP Commissioner Brenda Lucki below:

It’s crucial for Canada to make a strong statement that illegal content such as CSAM and non-consensual material will never be tolerated. It’s time to hold Pornhub accountable for breaking our laws @DavidLametti @BillBlair @CommrRCMPGRC #ETHI #cdnpoli

I’m calling on @DavidLametti @BillBlair @CommrRCMPGRC to stand with survivors by holding Pornhub liable for their crimes, including distributing CSAM & non-consensual material. #ETHI #cdnpoli

Pornhub (owned by MindGeek) has hosted & profited from heinous crimes such as rape, CSAM, sex trafficking, & non-consensual material. They also failed to report CSAM for nearly a decade & have made the removal of illegal videos extremely difficult for victimized individuals. The House of Commons Ethics Committee is currently studying the issue while survivors, advocates, & lawmakers continue to call on the RCMP to launch a full criminal investigation into MindGeek.
