Mastercard, Visa “Look In” on Pornhub Content


Payments giant Mastercard is reviewing its business with pornography platform Pornhub, following allegations published by the New York Times.

Pornhub parent company MindGeek has denied Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Nicholas Kristof’s claims he found multiple videos featuring child sex abuse, “revenge porn” and rape.

Mastercard rival Visa is now also investigating the claims against the site.

Its content is largely uploaded by its own community and publicly viewable.

The company, for its part,  said every video uploaded was reviewed by human moderators.
