America’s Largest Porn Website Just Gave Trump’s FCC Members The Ramming They Deserve

- Desember 14, 2017

In a move as shameful as it was predictable, the Republican-led Federal Communications Commission (FCC) voted this morning to scrap net neutrality regulations ensuring that Americans have access to a free and open internet.

The move was widely condemned by Americans on both sides of the aisle. A staggering 83 percent of Americans polled supported keeping the Obama-era net neutrality rules in place. That did not stop any of the Republican members of the FCC from thwarting the will of the American people in this morning’s vote.

Among the onslaught of vocal detractors, America’s largest porn website, Pornhub, took to Twitter to put into plain terms what actually occurred this morning.

This morning’s move has effectively neutered regulations that prohibited internet service providers from blocking websites, throttling speeds, or charging premiums for certain content. The commission’s chairman, Ajit Pai, has defended the rollback by defiantly claiming that it would “promote competition.”

Pai and his Republican committee members can try to pass off this blatant giveaway to ISPs as a boon to innovation, but Americans from all political persuasions can see through their empty rhetoric—and have vowed to fight the decision.
