New Mexico AG: Pornhub, OnlyFans Safer Than Facebook, Instagram

SANTA FE, N.M. — The office of New Mexico Attorney General Raúl Torrez has asserted, in a statement announcing the state’s lawsuit against Meta, that some child sexual abuse material (CSAM) is 10 times more prevalent on Facebook and Instagram than on Pornhub and OnlyFans.

New Mexico’s suit against Meta and CEO Mark Zuckerberg alleges that the company’s platforms “enabled child sexual abuse material to be distributed, and failed to identify alleged predator networks,” CNBC reported.

Torrez filed the lawsuit after an undercover investigation, which New Mexico alleges “revealed myriad instances of sexually explicit content being served to minors, child sexual coercion, or the sale of CSAM.”

The New Mexico AG’s office said through a statement that Zuckerberg and other Meta executives “are aware of the serious harm their products can pose to young users, and yet they have failed to make sufficient changes to their platforms that would prevent the sexual exploitation of children. Despite repeated assurances to Congress and the public that they can be trusted to police themselves, it is clear that Meta’s executives continue to prioritize engagement and ad revenue over the safety of the most vulnerable members of our society.

“The Office’s investigators found that certain child exploitative content is over ten times more prevalent on Facebook and Instagram than it is on Pornhub and OnlyFans,” the statement noted.
