The reason it was taken down was initially unknown but Pornhub has now revealed to BuzzFeed News why the advert was removed so quickly.


A spokesman said the advert had been mounted on a building occupied by the Hilton DoubleTree hotel.

The reason it was taken down was due to complaints by the hotel's general manager.

"Our initial agreement with City Outdoor, the company that owns the billboard space, was that we had full approval for the ad to be placed in the initial location," the spokesman added.

"We are now currently in the process of evaluating various high traffic alternative locations in New York City and in other major metropolitan areas."
