LOS ANGELES — As social media and academia, once the greatest defenders of free speech, increasingly flex their censorship muscles to dictate what content the American public should and should not be exposed to, ABC’s “Nightline” delved into the recent porn banning efforts of Tumblr and Notre Dame students.

XBIZ Award-winning performer Abigail Mac was featured prominently in the episode, championing the rights of the adult industry and advocating sex-positivity. “I am so honored that ABC has given me a voice on their platform,” Mac told XBIZ. “The adult industry will keep pushing past boundaries set by society’s standards. I am so proud to be a positive representation of a misunderstood industry.”

During the episode, Mac said, “I do a multitude of things … I do scenes, I do movies, I do feature dancing, I have my own website, I try to stay very diversified in how I can make money,” as “Nightline” correspondent Linsey Davis commented on how Mac uses the internet to monetize and distribute content, with the help of her husband Zachary Kurtz.

Davis examined how talent like Mac are lamenting the announcement that popular website Tumblr will ban adult content starting next week.

“If it’s so easy for just one day…” Mac said, snapping, “Gone! Then, it’s going to be really easy for another to be like, okay, gone too! It’s really scary to know I can just wake up tomorrow and all my social media just won’t be there.”
