Two Survivors of Childhood Sex Abuse Sue PornHub Over Videos of Sexual Assault on Website

A 16-year-old Alabama girl who claimed she was drugged and raped and that the sexual abuse was filmed and uploaded to PornHub was one of two girls who filed a federal class action lawsuit against the adult video site’s parent company.

The lawsuit alleges PornHub profited from sex trafficking and did not take steps to ensure its videos did not contain victims of child pornography or rape.

The suit, filed Thursday in federal court in Birmingham against MindGeek — PornHub’s parent company — alleges that the site violated a number of laws, including the Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act , which allows victims to sue entities in civil court who benefit from “a venture that it should have known was engaged in a violation, including that an act involving a child 18 years of age or under constitutes a violation,” according to the complaint.

The girl, who is not named in the lawsuit, was drugged and raped in 2018 by a Tuscaloosa man who uploaded video of the sexual assault to PornHub, the suit claims. The alleged rapist is also not named in the suit, and he is not named as a defendant.

Lawyers for the teen, who along with an underage California girl brought the federal lawsuit in Alabama, said PornHub did not make an effort to check whether she was a minor or victim of rape or sex trafficking.
