Pornhub’s Instagram Account Taken Down After Concerns About Site Content

Instagram has removed the official account of Pornhub—one of the world’s most popular adult sites—from its platform, the latest escalation as tech giants crack down on purveyors of adult content amid mounting public pressure and allegations of widespread abuse and illegal content online.

Pornhub’s Instagram account had some 13.1 million followers and more than 6,200 posts when it was removed, according to Variety this is the first time that this news was reported.

The account did not post pornographic content to Instagram—which would clearly violate the platform’s no nudity rule—and it is not immediately clear why Pornhub’s account was removed.

Screenshots shared on Twitter by an anti-Pornhub campaigner indicate the account was removed for violating Instagram’s community guidelines following a report filed on June 1.

The report is not independently verified. It does not provide any details about the policies that were broken, the time they occurred or what content caused the platform to take action.
