On Sunday, many in India woke up to certain restrictions on their internet usage and soon it was revealed that government had  issued notices to internet service providers across India to block more than 857 'pornographic' websites Much has been spoken about the ban on 'porn' with people joking and outraging about it, while the government defended the move as a bid to combat child pornography.

However, one of the strongest critiques on the whole issue might just belong to, wait for it, a porn site. Look at what Xvideos.com tweeted about India's #Pornban.

Representational image.

The Twitter description of Xvideos.com claims it is the most visited adult site in the world and it hasn't shied away from making a strong political statement, aptly showcasing its sentiments towards the NDA government’s decision.

Additionally, it appears that porn is not the only thing on the ban-radar with other, clearly not X-rated sites like 9gag.com and  CollegeHumor.com being inaccessible as well. (yes, these portal of hilarity are blocked too!)

So how would site like College Humor respond to this extreme step by the Indian authorities? Humorously, of course! Check out their cheeky tweet

And from what  certain Twitter users who have access to the 'made-up facts' show, the facts are indeed quite ridiculous.
