Why the athlete sues Pornhub

At the age of 18, Leigh Nicol decided to make a home video of her having sex just for herself. Who would have thought that a few years later it would become public? Nicol got hacked, and her intimate video ended up stolen and uploaded to MindGeek porn sites.

According to the Crystal Palace player, she tried to remove the videos from Pornhub several times already, while the site is being visited by about 130 million users every day. However, fragments of the video have reappeared again and again.
"It's illegal. I didn't post anything, but I'm trending on the world's largest adult website," Leigh Nicol shared on social media.

Leigh Nicol's psychological trauma

The incident with the leaked home video affected the girl's mental state. Thus, in 2019, Nicol decided to quit soccer for a year to deal with her mental trauma.

It turned out that the athlete still can't recover and fears that now no one will want to marry her:
"Even at this moment I look at myself in the mirror - and I feel bad because it is no longer personal. Because most of the general population has seen things they shouldn't have seen. There is a shame, there is an embarrassment, there is disgust, and there is doubt that I am not good enough. I feel like no one would ever want to be my husband because of that video." That's how a single video can ruin a person's life...

It's worth noting that Leigh Nicol isn't the only one suing Pornhub over videos leaked without consent. There are 34 girls among the victims, 14 of whom were minors at the time the intimate videos were filmed. Another 14 are victims of people accused or convicted of sexual misconduct.
