Pornhub Hit w/ Lawsuit for Posting Alleged Child Molestation Video

‘A bad day for Pornhub is a great day for humankind...’

(Dmytro “Henry” Aleksandrov, Headline USA) The parent company of Pornhub, MindGeek, is being sued by a woman for allowing the dissemination of videos and images of her son being molested by an Alabama man despite warnings from authorities,

A mother, who uses the anonymous CV1 Mother because of the sensitive and private nature of the allegations, filed a lawsuit last month against MindGeek, other foreign entities and Rocky Shay Franklin, a man from Greenville, Ala., who was accused of signing a contract with MindGeek’s operator in a U.S. District Court of Alabama, reported the Daily Wire.

“This lawsuit concerns perhaps one of the most disturbing courses of conduct imaginable: the exploitation of child molestation for profit,” according to the lawsuit.

“The MindGeek Defendants are those entities who utilized their platform(s) in collaboration with Defendant Franklin to disseminate obvious images and videos of child molestation, thereby profiting from their dissemination.”

Franklin uploading at least 23 videos molesting the child offered for at least $15 represents “substantial financial benefit to the MindGeek Defendants in multiple ways,” the prosecutors said.

He was arrested in May 2020 for sexually exploiting a child, advertising child pornography and distributing it. After his arrest, he pled guilty and is currently serving 40 years in prison.

The lawsuit claims that before his sentencing, Franklin lived with plaintiff CV1’s Mother and her children between July and Oct. 2018 — the time during which he assaulted the 12-year-old boy and another minor.

“Franklin overpowered them and, in some cases, drugged them for the purpose of preying on them [while] recording his acts of sexual violence,” the court document states.

Franklin signed a contract with MindGeek, where the footage of the molestation generated 188,000 video views with more than 1,100 subscribers on Pornhub, according to the lawsuit.

Laila Mickelwait, founder and CEO of Justice Defense Fund, a nonprofit that has opposed Pornhub since the accusations of having ties with sex trafficking minors started, advocated shutting down the website completely and holding all of its executives accountable after issuing a list of accusations in her tweets.
