A bombshell lawsuit filed Thursday against Pornhub and its parent company MindGeek accuses the adult website of hosting — and profiting off of — videos depicting rape and the sexual exploitation of children. Thirty-four women have joined the civil suit, accusing MindGeek of running a “criminal enterprise.” “MindGeek is the most dominant online pornography company in the world. It is also one of the largest human trafficking ventures in the world. And it is likely the largest non-regulatory repository of child pornography in North America and well beyond,” the lawsuit asserts. The lawsuit emphasizes that the case against MindGeek is not about porn, but child exploitation, rape, and coercion. “This is a case about rape, not pornography,” it reads. “It is a case about the rape and sexual exploitation of children. It is a case about the rape and sexual exploitation of men and women. And it is a case about each of these defendants knowingly and intentionally electing to capitalize and profit from the horrendous exploitation and abuse of tens of thousands of other human beings so they could make more than the enormous sums of money they would have otherwise made anyway.”
