According to the porn site, it had decided to celebrate the reopening of museums around the world, with its app "stimulating the public to visit, explore, and fall back in love (or lust) with these cultural institutions". But it appears the said institutions were not exactly thrilled with this type of assistance.
The Louvre Museum has initiated legal action against Pornhub over its "Classic Nudes" app that recreates famous paintings with adult movie stars. The first edition shows porn stars recreating various masterpieces from the Louvre and Musee d'Orsay in Paris, the National Gallery in London, the Uffizi in Florence, and the Prado in Madrid.
The museums, however, didn't really appreciate this search for inspiration: the Louvre and the Uffizi demanded that the porn site remove reproductions of the paintings they host.
The Louvre told the media the museum had already contacted Pornhub and expected the works to be removed "at once".
