Yaroslav Suris, a hearing-impaired man, has filed a class-action lawsuit against Pornhub, popular adult website, for allegedly denying the deaf access to its videos enjoyed by others.

According to TMZ, Suris is suing the adult video website for lack of closed captioning, claiming it violates their rights under the Americans with disabilities act.

“Pornhub has shut one man out of enjoying his favorite naked vids to their full potential — and violating federal law in the process — so he’s filed a class-action lawsuit,” the news outlet wrote.

The complainant also cited examples of some of the deaf and hearing impaired content he watched, stating that the the audio portion of the video on the site cannot be understood.

While lamenting that he paid for Pornhub’s premium subscription, Suris also questioned the quality of that package with the lack of closed captioning.

Consequently, he is suing for the adult website to add closed captioning, in addition to damages.

Corey Price, Pornhub’s VP, in response to the lawsuit, disclosed that they actually have closed captions category for the hearing impaired.

“We understand that Yaroslav Suris is suing Pornhub for claiming we’ve denied the deaf and hearing impaired access to our videos,” he told TMZ.

“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.”
