Los Angeles – Cherie DeVille‘s open letter in The Daily Beast rallying against Utah’s Porn Ban Bill was just published on Saturday, and has already caused waves. Just hours after Cherie’s article hit the web, The Salt Lake Tribune picked up on it, quoting Cherie several times, and garnering a response from Rep. Susan Pulsipher, the Republican who sponsored the bill.
In “A Porn Star’s Open Letter To Utah Republicans On Their XXX Cellphone Ban”, Cherie rightfully articulates the pitfalls of HB72, which will require all new cellphones and tablets to block what they deem as explicit content. Cherie argues that a measure of this extreme is a direct violation of free speech, and will end up hurting those in the adult industry in the long run. As she points out, since the boom of the internet, parental filters and controls have existed, and put the onus on parents to monitor their children’s online activities. Cherie also calls out the fact that porn will be available on other devices connected to the internet, as well as the hypocrisy of free speech proponents.
In response, The Salt Lake Tribune published “Adult Film Star Urges Utah Gov. Spencer Cox To Veto Porn-blocker Bill”, which includes several quotes from Cherie’s open letter. In response, Rep. Pulsipher defended her bill, stating that her bill will help lessen the frustration of parents who cannot figure out how to use existing filters, especially those who aren’t tech-savvy.
“I would like to thank The Daily Beast once again for letting me speak my mind,” Cherie commented. “I also want to thank The Salt Lake Tribune for picking up on my letter. I hope this exposure will urge Gov. Cox to veto this bill and protect freedom of speech and the livelihoods of adult performers.”
