A woman has claimed that she was blocked on the road by a vehicle with a sticker that said, 'Pornhub casting car' on the back. The incident took place at 1 am at night when the Audi with the dubious label, flashed its lights several times at her and left her shaken and scared. 

The unnamed woman said the incident, which took place in Armthorpe near Doncaster in South Yorks, England, involved a silver TT. Pornhub, which is one of the world's largest adult content viewing sites, with more than four million explicit videos, has insisted that the vehicle did not belong to them because the company "does not have casting cars". The terrified woman posted about the encounter on social media. "Just to make others aware I was on my way to work and a Silver Audi TT with a Pornhub sticker on the back window attempted to block the road and wouldn’t allow me to pass when he kept stopping in the middle of the road," she said. “He did this all the way from Tesco Express all the way to the long road up to Sainsbury’s."

She added: "Eventually stopped - I managed to pass and he was then flashing his lights continuously. It really shook me up as it was so early and there was no one around. Just to make other girls aware who may be walking the streets or driving in the early hours. It was worrying that he had a sticker that said Pornhub casting car. All very weird. It’s really shaken me up. I’m dreading driving to work that way now." 

A spokesperson for the adult streaming service said regarding the incident: "The vehicle does not belong to Pornhub, and has absolutely nothing to do with Pornhub. Pornhub does not have casting cars, and we are investigating who may be behind this."

'Pornhub casting car' sticker spotted on other vehicles

However, there has been chatter on social media regarding cars with similarly fake 'Pornhub casting car' stickers. These bright pink vehicles, carrying the Pornhub logo, have been spotted in several locations around the town. For example, one social media user said a car bearing the X-rated site's logo was spotted in nearby Rossington. Three fake "casting cars" with similar stickers were also spotted last month, most likely in West Yorks. 
 
All of these vehicles had a sign on the rear window that read "Pornhub Casting Car" on them. It was not immediately clear if the two incidents were related. Pornhub has made it clear that the matter was under investigation and was in no way related to the X-rated site. This is not the first time that the adult movie-streaming site has found itself embroiled in controversy. It was accused of hosting child abuse videos and in order to distance itself from the same, the site reportedly removed nearly 80 percent of videos on its website, which in turn infuriated adult film stars who depend on the site for a living.
