THAILAND bans pornography websites prompting #SavePornhub hashtag following an announcement on Tuesday, November 3.

Over 190 pornography websites, including Pornhub which was among the country’s Top 20 daily traffic searches in 2019, were banned by Thailand’s government, however, the hard decision was met by backlash from some frustrated fans.
Digital minister Puttipong Punnakanta told reporters the block was part of efforts to restrict access to porn and gambling websites, adding that such content is illegal under the country’s cybercrime law.

Thai users have tried to reverse the ban by starting the hashtag #SavePornhub on social media with an activist group called Anonymous Party posted a statement saying: “We want to reclaim Pornhub. People are entitled to choices.”

Big demonstrations and protests have begun in the country, although it is unknown how long they can keep it up.
