According to Consequence of Sound, Starbucks announced last week its plans to block access to porn sites on its servers. A major US porn site, YouPorn, has hit back by banning all Starbucks products from its offices.
YouPorn vice president Charlie Hughes wrote in a company memo,
“In light of the news that Starbucks has blocked customers from searching and viewing adult content within their establishments, Starbucks products will officially be banned from the YouPorn offices,”.
Starbucks’ policy will go into effect at all its US locations at the beginning of 2019. According to internet safety organization Enough Is Enough convicted sex offenders and teens visit porn sites whilst grabbing a coffee.
Enough Is Enough criticised Starbucks recently, maintaining that it didn’t follow through on a promise it made in 2016 to block offensive content. In a statement, Starbucks explained the delay saying that it was still looking for a solution which they seem to have found.
