Mastercard and Visa will stop processing payments to Pornhub | Tech

Following the viral New York Times report that detailed Pornhub's hosting of videos featuring underaged girls — and the massive tube site not doing much to rectify the problem — Mastercard and Visa have announced on Thursday that they're cutting ties with Pornhub. Mastercard full-stop won't allow their cards to be used to process Pornhub paymentsVisa is suspending card use and will conduct their own investigation, Bloomberg reported. In statements to Bloomberg, both companies claimed the move was done due to the illegal content on Pornhub.  Given the allegations of illegal activity, Visa is suspending Pornhub’s acceptance privileges pending the completion of our ongoing investigation. We are instructing the financial institutions who serve MindGeek to suspend processing of payments through the Visa network. — VisaNews (@VisaNews) December 10, 2020 Read more...
