Tumblr announced a ban on adult content and now the adults are making memes
Tumblr just thoroughly pissed off a whole bunch of adults, and now has to face the wrath of their memes.
After the website known for its lighthearted content, artwork, and yes, porn, announced it will be banning all adult content from its platform on Dec. 17, lots of Tumblr-loving adults got Very Mad Online.
The drastic new policy comes weeks after Tumblr's iOS app was temporarily removed from the App Store due to child pornography.
The site, which previously allowed all sorts of NSFW content will now limit "adult content" such as "photos, videos, or GIFs that show real-life human genitals or female-presenting nipples, and any content—including photos, videos, GIFs and illustrations—that depicts sex acts," per a statement.
As you might expect, many Tumblr users who were not offended by and even may have enjoyed the site's lax, NSFW content, weren't too pleased to hear the news.
Many shared their outrage via Twitter, creating Tumblr-esque memes, dragging the site for not taking tougher action on child porn and on-platform trolls.
It's been a tough week for those who enjoy consuming porn online, as Starbucks recently announced it plans to block access to porn from its public WiFi, too.
Stay strong, everyone. Twitter probably doesn't give a fuck about porn.
