PORNHUB could face a cash crisis after Visa announced it will no longer handle the website's ad payments.
Visa is currently facing a court case over claims it enabled Pornhub to profit from child porn and non-consensual images.1Visa announced it will no longer handle Pornhub's ad payments following a lawsuitCredit: Getty
The card company is now refusing to accept payments for the adult website’s ad wing TrafficJunky.
This follows an earlier suspension on card payments to Pornhub after it was found that illegal videos were being circulated on the website.
Pornhub’s parent company MindGeek is being sued along with Visa by a woman who claims in 2014, when she was 13, a former boyfriend shared an explicit video of her to Pornhub where it gained 400,000 views.
The video was removed by informing MindGeek that “the video qualified as child pornography,” however, it was re-uploaded “several times” with one upload having over 2million views.Most read in The US SunKIM-TENSE Kim flaunts TINY thighs in gym at $60M mansion as fans say she's 'too skinny'CODE RED China 'convinced it needs to hit US with Pearl Harbor-style strike' over TaiwanBREAST IDEA?

The woman’s lawyers say her life “spiraled out of control” as a result, with her becoming suicidal and addicted to heroin.
The suit alleges that MindGeek earned ad revenue and “profited” from the videos and Visa played a role as it processes payments for the company.
In a statement, Visa’s CEO Alfred Kelly Jr said the company’s role had been “mischaracterized” and said the allegations are “repugnant.”
“Let me be clear: Visa condemns sex trafficking, sexual exploitation, and child sexual abuse. It is illegal, and Visa does not permit the use of our network for illegal activity,” he said.
“Our rules explicitly and unequivocally prohibit the use of our products to pay for content that depicts nonconsensual sexual behavior or child sexual abuse.”
