Whistleblower: Pornhub Tells Content Moderators Not to Report Child Porn to Authorities

A whistleblower has come forward claiming they used to work for Mindgeek, which is the conglomerate behind Pornhub and other smut websites, and the company deliberately allowed child porn to be collected and distributed on their platform.

Canadian MP Charlie Angus read the whistleblower testimony while speaking before parliament on the matter.

“I fear for my safety so I prefer not to give more details, but please investigate all the cam girl sites that Mindgeek runs,” the whistleblower said. “I am certain many of these so-called Mindgeek models are being held in captive in trafficking situations all over the world.”

“For example, women trying to escape North Korea will be held captive and forced into the cam studios in China by their trafficker who they thought would help them get out. This story repeats globally,” they added.

The whistleblower claims that Mindgeek gets around culpability for this sex trafficking operation because they use third-party vendors.

“Ask Mindgeek to provide all the financial records for all incoming and outgoing transactions and their affiliate networks for all business units, all pay sites, all tube sites, all cam sites, all advertising networks like TrafficJunkie. It will be clear that the scope of the problem is much larger than anyone on the ethics committee or reporting in mainstream media currently realizes,” they said.

“This problem is so much bigger than Pornhub,” the whistleblower continued, adding that he was “discouraged from contacting Interpol” by his superiors when he found child porn on the network.

Big League Politics has reported on the explosion of the illicit child pornography and human trafficking industries powered by the rise of streaming video sites and social media platforms:

A video exposé posted onto YouTube by the account Racy Beaver makes a strong case that OnlyFans, the social media platform that encourages young girls to post lewd sexual content of themselves to the internet for cash, is driving global consumption of child pornography.

The video starts with some damning statistics about Western culture and use of pornography before dovetailing into OnlyFans, which has turned a nation of porn consumers into porn creators exploiting themselves for money to a subscriber base of gawking perverts.

“If you consume pornography on an even semi-regular basis, with an estimated 45 million child pornography photos and videos circulating the internet right now, chances are likely that you’ve consumed child pornography without releasing it,” Racy Beaver said.

“That’s almost certainly the case if you’re a regular user of OnlyFans,” he contended.

The video argues that OnlyFans’ lax standards allows young girls to make a fake ID, begin posting illicit underage pornography of themselves on the platform, and then distribute it for money to predators. This could be considered a form of child sex trafficking, and it is one that is already extremely pervasive throughout society.

Racy Beaver cited a BBC study contending that “on a single day, a third of Twitter profiles globally advertising “nudes4sale” (or similar) appeared to belong to an underage individual and many of those used OnlyFans to share their content.” He also found Twitter accounts where young girls were selling nude pictures and bragging about how they used fake IDs to sell child porn on OnlyFans.”

MindGeek must be fully investigated and anyone involved with alleged sex trafficking in the company should be swiftly brought to justice.
