In retaliation to the porn ban Starbucks is planning to impose, pornographic video sharing website YouPorn is allegedly set to ban its employees from consuming the coffee chain’s products in the workplace.

An email attributed to YouPorn vice president Charlie Hughes made its way to Reddit. A copy of the email was uploaded by Reddit user, dankph, on Friday, Nov. 30.

Hughes reminded that starting Jan. 1, 2019, all full-time and part-time employees of the company are prohibited from bringing Starbucks products in the company’s offices.

“In light of the news that Starbucks has blocked customers from searching and viewing adult content within their establishments, Starbucks products will officially be banned from the YouPorn offices, effective January 1st, 2019,” Hughes wrote.

YouPorn has yet to confirm or deny the email, as of this writing.

Starbucks announced on Nov. 28 that it plans to introduce content blockers which will prevent users from watching porn in their stores, as reported by Business Insider on the same day. The coffee chain will roll out the tool to their United States locations next year.

Internet-safety organization Enough Is Enough launched a petition via Spanish conservative advocacy group CitizenGo for fast food chains and coffee chains to filter pornography from their free Wi-Fi in 2016. McDonald’s, Subway and Chick-fil-A, as per the report, had responded immediately to the petition while Starbucks has yet to implement the measure. NVG
