Deaf Man Sues Pornhub Over Its Lack Of Closed Captions In Adult Films

A deaf man from New York has sued the worlds most popular adult website because he said that he “cannot enjoy video content” without closed captioning. 

But he hasn’t just sued Pornhub; he has sued a whole host of other adult websites too. 

Yaroslav Suris tried to watch videos on the popular website entitled “Hot Step Aunt Babysits Disobedient Nephew,” “Sexy Cop Gets Witness To Talk” and others in October 2019 and January 2020, according to ABC News.

But Suris could not follow the dramatic plot of the epic films due to the website’s lack of closed captioning, according to the lawsuit filed Thursday in the Eastern District of New York.

The lawsuit alleges that Pornhub, RedTube and YouPorn are in violation of the 1990 Americans with Disabilities Act. 

Part of the ADA’s goal is to provide “full and equal enjoyment” of a public accommodation’s goods, services, facilities and privileges, according to the lawsuit.

“Websites that prevent accessibility to deaf and hard of hearing individuals is a discriminatory act,” the lawsuit reads.

The ADA cites that its purpose is “to make sure that people with disabilities have the same rights and opportunities as everyone else.”

This is also perhaps the first time that anyone has admitted on public record that they actually follow the dodgy plots which are played out on adult websites such as Pornhub.

Most people will be surprised that adult films actually have a plot as they no-doubt skip to the more visually pleasing parts of the videos.

Pornhub’s Vice President Corey Price disputed the claim that the website doesn’t offer closed captions.

“While we do not generally comment on active lawsuits, we’d like to take this opportunity to point out that we do have a closed captions category,” according to a statement from Price provided to ABC News. 

The statement included a link to its closed captions section.

Suris has previously sued Fox News, the New York Post and other outlets alleging similar ADA violations on their websites.

He is seeking compensatory damages, civil penalties and fines against Pornhub.
