Mastercard and Visa block transactions on Pornhub

  • Further to our story on Wednesday,  Mastercard and Visa have now said they will  block their customers from using the credit cards to make purchases on Pornhub following accusations the pornographic website showed videos of child abuse and rape
  • This news follows an investigation by the opinion columnist Nicholas Kristof of the New York Times that also alleged the site depicts revenge pornography and videos taken without the consent of participants. Pornhub has denied the allegations
  • Mastercard said it is terminating the use of its cards on Pornhub after its own investigation confirmed violations of standards prohibiting unlawful conduct on the site
  • Mastercard said it was also investigating other websites for potentially illegal content
  • Visa said it was suspending the use of its cards on Pornhub on Thursday, even though its own investigation was incomplete.
  • In a statement, Pornhub called the actions “exceptionally disappointing”
