A deaf man is suing the world’s largest adult videos site for allegedly violating the American Disabilities Act by failing to provide enough subtitles for their X-rated films.
According to TMZ, the bizarre class-action lawsuit against Pornhub was filed by Yaroslav Suris who claims he is denied proper access to the international porn site’s content due to the fact that he’s deaf and the site doesn’t provide subs for all of their films.
As Mr. Suris argues in the lawsuit, he had attempted to understand the plot of several Pornhub videos, including the one in which ‘Sexy Cop Gets Witness to Talk,’ with little success due to the lack of subs.
While the site has previously confirmed that some of their videos were getting closed captions, Suris believes his rights are being violated due to the limited amount of content with subs available on the site.
While the Department of Labor “prohibits discrimination against people with disabilities in several areas, including employment, transportation, public accommodations, communications and access to state and local government’ programs and services,” the displeased man believes that his rights were violated not only by the lack of subs but also by the fact that he was let down after paying for premium subscription in hopes of having access to more closed caption videos.
After the news of the bizarre lawsuit went viral, Pornhub’s VP Corey Price responded in a statement saying:
“We understand that Yaroslav Suris is suing Pornhub for claiming we’ve denied the deaf and hearing-impaired access to our videos.
“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.”
However, Suris apparently isn’t happy with the limited number of ‘just’ 400 videos with closed captions available on the site.
