Nearly Deaf Man Sues Pornhub over Lack of Closed Captioning, They Respond

A hearing-impaired man has initiated a class-action suit against Pornhub for not offering a closed caption option on its X-rated videos. The suit, filed by Yaroslay Suris, claims the lack of closed captioning is a violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act, according to court documents. The paperwork even lists a few of the videos Suris has had trouble understanding, such as "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." The lawsuit asks the court to order Pornhub to include closed captions as well as an undisclosed amount of damages.

Pornhub has responded to a man’s claims that there’s a lack of closed caption videos on the site. Yaroslav Suris is suing Pornhub because of videos that he says he can’t enjoy because they are equipped to be viewed with closed captioning. In a statement to TMZ, Pornhub responded: "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." It appears that Suris missed that category Suris is seeking damages and hopes for the site to become more inclusive for hearing impaired users. Maybe they will just make the font bigger on the category. Do you think Yaroslav Suris has a chance of winning his lawsuit?
