In pure (not-so-pure?) retaliation, porn site YouPorn has banned its employees from bringing Starbucks products into their office.

Earlier this week, Starbucks announced that they are investing in a service that will block users from searching porn on company wifi. The block will start in 2019.

However, the sites that the coffee chain plans on blocking are not too happy. YouPorn recently sent a memo to its employees banning them from getting their daily dose of caffeine from Starbucks.

According to TMZ, the ban will be effective Jan. 1.

“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,” the email from Vice President Charlie Hughes reads.

According to the Washington Examiner, YouPorn is of the top 200 highest-traffic websites in the United States.

The coffee chain has yet to disclose any detailed information regarding the ban. However, representatives have complied with the demands of Enough Is Enough. Enough Is Enough is an internet-safety advocacy group that targets businesses without blocks on unsafe or offensive content. 

“To ensure the Third Place remains safe and welcoming to all, we have identified a solution to prevent this content from being viewed within our stores,” a Starbucks representative says. “We will begin introducing it to our US locations in 2019.”

The original concern was brought up by Enough Is Enough in 2014.

“By breaking its commitment, Starbucks is keeping the doors wide open for convicted sex offenders and others to fly under the radar from law enforcement and use free, public Wi-Fi services to access illegal child porn and hard-core pornography,” Enough Is Enough says in a statement.
