PornHub Troubles – MindGeek CEO And COO Resign!

According to WSJ, MindGeek CEO Feras Antoon and COO David Tassillo are leaving the parent company of major pornography site Pornhub amid scrutiny of alleged nonconsensual sexually explicit videos hosted on the site. The leadership changes have been in the works since early 2022, MindGeek said. However, Antoon and Tassillo will remain shareholders, the company said.

Investigations by several news organizations, including the New Yorker earlier this month, reported that Pornhub allegedly hosted videos that included nonconsensual and underage sex.

A company spokesman said the departures aren’t related to the accusations against MindGeek. The company said it has enacted safeguards and that it removes incidents of child sexual-abuse material. “MindGeek has more comprehensive and effective policies than any other major platform on the internet,” the company said. 

MindGeek has more than 1,000 employees and its network of sites attracts over 150 million daily visitors, according to the company. Besides PornHub, the company also owns other popular porn sites such as RedTube and YouPorn.
