Netflix is reportedly pissed that the horniest scenes from its hit new series Bridgerton have popped up on a bunch of porn sites. The streaming service is apparently doing everything it can to remove the clips from adult streaming websites, including sending official copyright warnings.

The pirated scenes in question feature leading stars Phoebe Dynevor and Regé-Jean Page, who play Daphne Bridgerton and Simon Basset, the Duke of Hastings. If you haven’t watched the show yet, then all you need to know is that it is indeed very, very horny. So it’s not a surprise this has happened, but that doesn’t make it right.

According to The Sun, the actors are said to be understandably upset by the developments.

“It’s been particularly distressing for Phoebe and Regé-Jean, two young actors who signed on for the role of a lifetime and did not consent to being exploited in this way,” a source told the publication.

“Netflix has been working tirelessly to hunt down pirates and eliminate misuse of their intellectual property. Anyone thinking about trying this will have the full force of the globe’s biggest streaming service against them.”

Unfortunately, people ripping intimate scenes from films and TV shows and putting them on porn sites is nothing new to the industry.

Last year, the producers of the critically acclaimed series Normal People issued a takedown request to PornHub after a compilation of sex scenes from the series surfaced on the site.

“We’re hugely disappointed that excerpts from the series of Normal People have been used in this way,” executive producer Ed Guiney said in a statement to Variety last year.

“It’s both a violation of copyright and more importantly, it’s deeply disrespectful to the actors involved and to the wider creative team.”

PornHub removed the Normal People clips immediately, saying it believes itself to be “fully compliant with the law.”

Whether or not it, and other platforms, will do the same for Bridgerton remains to be seen.

Bridgerton is streaming now on Netflix.
