Pornhub permanently banned from Instagram despite claiming its account was ‘PG’

Pornhub has been permanently banned from social media platform Instagram even after saying its account was "fully PG".

The popular pornographic website's social presence has taken a blow after Instagram removed the official account from its platform following pressure from anti-pornography groups.

A Meta spokesperson has since gone on record to confirm the account was removed, saying: "We've permanently disabled this Instagram account for repeatedly violating our policies."

The Pornhub Instagram account is said to have racked up a number of terms of service breaches over the decade it was active on the social media app, with several warnings administered.

Meta has claimed it notified Pornhub about the posts that violated its terms of service, but did not disclose which posts from the account had violated said terms.

Meta did, however, make note of its terms describing adult content, nudity, sexual solicitation and guidelines on the accumulating violations of its terms of service.

Pornhub took to Twitter and shared an open letter from various pornographers, performers, industry activism groups and models protesting the ban.

The letter read: "Sex workers and performers have been unfairly targeted in the form of bans, shadow bans, suspensions, loss of Live privileges, and content removal, despite taking extra care not to violate Instagram's Community Guidelines."

The letter also took a jab at Kim Kardashian, with the Pornhub Twitter account adding: "Pornhub's safe-for-work account has been disabled for three weeks.

"In the interim, Kim Kardashian has posted her fully exposed a** to her 330 million followers without any restrictive action from Instagram."

Despite the ban, a Pornhub spokesperson believes the account deactivation will be temporary as it has "happened many times in the past due to Instagram's overly cautious censoring of the adult industry".

Regardless of that belief, Instagram has stated its decision is final, Indy100 reported.
