Instagram served as a distribution partner with this criminal enterprise, helping to push millions to their website, including children,” the group’s CEO, Dawn Hawkins, said in a statement Saturday.“We are grateful that Instagram has heard the voices of sexual abuse survivors who have been personally harmed by Pornhub’s insatiable appetite for profit,” Hawkins added.
