Deaf man sued website for not subtitling porn videos

A deaf person living in New York has filed a lawsuit against three porn websites alleging class discrimination. The person has said in his application that without subtitled he is not able to fully enjoy the content available on the websites.

In a petition filed in Brooklyn Federal Court on Thursday, Yaroslav Suris filed a lawsuit against various porn websites stating that they were violating the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990.

Even before this, Suris has sued Fox News for this. He had said that he wanted to watch some videos in October and this month, but could not. Suris wrote in his 23-page petition, “Without the subtitles, people who are deaf and hard of hearing are not able to enjoy the video at all, whereas ordinary people can do it.”

Suris said that he wants the porn websites to be subtitled and he has also demanded some damages. In this regard, the official of a porn site has issued a statement saying that there is also a section with subtitled on the website and they have also given a link to it.
