Hong Kong Porn Sites Shut Down In Support Of Millions Protesting Extradition Law

Two prominent adult sites shut down temporarily last week, displaying messages of support and encouragement for site visitors to join the Hong Kong protests against a proposed extradition bill.

In the days leading up to the landmark protests on June 9, popular pornographic video sharing site ThisAV shut up shop displaying a message on their homepage that encouraged users to attend the “life or death” protests instead of “jerking off at home.”

More than a million Hong Kong locals marched on June 9 in protest of an extradition bill that would allow suspects to be sent to mainland China for trial.

Protestors believed that the bill would allow China to encroach on their rights.

“We go onto the street not because we have hope or we think more people will make our action succeed,” the above screenshot reads.

“We know we need to do it no matter whether we shall succeed or not. Even a pig will scream before it is killed. Should we be killed but remain silent?”

The move has attracted attention locally, prompting ThisAV founder (who has not identified himself) to release a statement on twitter.

“I would like to thank the media for reporting on the way we encourage Hong Kong people to go to the streets, but please don’t stop us as a conscience website,” the statement reads.
