“Hard” Of Hearing: PornHub Being Sued By Deaf Man For Lack Of Closed Captioning

Visuals are sometimes difficult to enjoy without context.

At least, that’s the argument being made by Yaroslav Suris, who is suing the popular online porn site claiming that its lack of closed captioning for the deaf and hearing-impaired is discriminatory. 

Suris is claiming that the website violates his rights under the Americans With Disabilities Act, according to TMZ, who first broke the story. 

He claims that the deaf and hearing impaired can’t understand the audio tracks of videos on the website and claims that some of his favorite titles – with names like “Hot Step Aunt Babysits Disobedient Nephew,” “Sexy Cop Gets Witness to Talk” and “Daddy 4K — Allison comes to Talk About Money to Her Boys’ Naughty Father” – are difficult to follow.

This is a man who obviously appreciates artistic integrity of the actors and actresses…

He also says that he would pay for a Premium subscription to PornHub, but that it is pointless to shell out the money for it without closed captioning. Because we all know there isn’t enough free porn out there – and there definitely isn’t enough free porn with closed captioning. 

He is suing PornHub not only to request closed captioning, but also for damages.

PornHub, on the other hand (no pun intended), actually does have some closed captions.

PornHub’s VP, Corey Price responded by 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.”

We hope Yarslav doesn’t spend too much of his spare time on the site, however. He could wind up deaf and blind.
