Porn Site Blocks North Carolina IPs & Reveals Most Searched Terms

The list of businesses either boycotting North Carolina by refusing to do business there, or protesting it, is only growing larger. Now, an unlikely ally has joined the fray: porn site xHamster.

In response to the horrible anti-LGBT bill just signed into law in North Carolina, xHamster has blocked all NC IP addresses and users within that state now get a black screen when going to that site.

According to the company, access will remain restricted until House Bill 2 is revoked in the state.

Mike Kulich, a spokesperson for xHamster, had this to say: “We have spent the last 50 years fighting for equality for everyone and these laws are discriminatory which XHamster.com does not tolerate. Judging by the stats of what you North Carolinians watch, we feel this punishment is a severe one. We will not standby and pump revenue into a system that promotes this type of garbage. We respect all sexualities and embrace them.”

Mike added: “Back in March, we had 400,000 hits for the term ‘Transsexual’ from North Carolina alone. People from that state searched ‘Gay’ 319,907 times.”

Apparently, they are planning to replace the current black screen in place for North Carolinians will be replaced by a petition demanding the anti-LGBT law be repealed.

Mike said: “Hopefully, it will get as many signatures as the ‘transsexual’ searches.”

As I mentioned at the start of this article, the list of companies and entertainers boycotting the state is only growing. Recently, we saw Bruce Springsteen cancel his NC tour date in protest of the law.

Mike, however, seemed to think that xHamster can make an impact even The Boss can’t.

“I think that porn has the power to do what Bruce Springsteen can’t.”

Here’s hoping that this prompts North Carolina citizens to act, or at least see their hypocrisy in all it’s glory. Have you followed us on Facebook and Twitter?
