Twitter, Pornhub and Reddit ban 'deepfake' AI edited pornography videos

Pornhub Officially Bans Emerging Genre Of AI Sex Videos

It's important to note that Reddit isn't banning deepfakes completely but just the porn side of it.

San Francisco, California-based Reddit has also updated its policy on involuntary pornography and the sexualization of minors.

The subreddit where this kind of porn originated was called deepfakes, and the name became synonymous with the fake porn videos themselves: but now several social media and video platforms are working to put an end to the videos by banning them altogether.

That aspect of it has now led to the removal of the Deepfakes subreddit, which was banned earlier this afternoon for violating Reddit's "policy against involuntary pornography".

What makes this story surprising is that the videos are faked. Pornhub's move comes amid the ongoing restriction imposed by social sites, including Reddit and Twitter, following in the identical steps taken by platforms such as Discord and Gfycat.

US House passes stopgap spending bill to avert shutdown
That was a turnaround from Tuesday, when Trump had said he would "love" a shutdown if he did not get his way on immigration. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has been holding a fake filibuster of sorts, speaking since just after 10 a.m.

Earlier this week Pornhub banned deepfakes saying it classifies these sorts of videos as nonconsensual porn. But the company is drawing the line on pornographic videos that show people who didn't agree to be in them. In a statement to press, Reddit stated firmly that "Communities focused on this content and users who post such content will be banned from the site".

'We will also suspend any account dedicated to posting this type of content, ' the spokesperson added.

But the tools are being used to create media without the subject's consent, which is not only poor form to say the least, but could also damage the person's reputation and significantly propagate the spread of fake news and online bullying.

Pornhub states that it doesn't allow "any nonconsensual content" on its platform and has deemed "deepfake" content to fall under this category.

"We do not tolerate any nonconsensual content on the site and we remove all said content as soon as we are made aware of it. Nonconsensual content directly violates our TOS [terms of service] and consists of content such as revenge porn, deepfakes or anything published without a person's consent or permission".
