Porn videos interrupt Louisiana regulator on Hurricane Ida

A meeting of Louisiana’s utility regulator about Hurricane Ida turned raunchy Wednesday when porn was blasted out to attendees.

The state’s Public Service Commission met virtually to discuss power and phone outages during Ida — but several users shared their screens and broadcast “explicit” pornography, The Advocate reported.

Electric companies and the PSC have been under fire in the wake of Ida, facing lawsuits and general community ire, the publication stated.

“It was unfortunate and disgusting,” PSC Chairman Craig Green said of the Zoombombing incident, the Advocate said. “Apparently, the hackers have adequate electricity and internet access.”

The five-member commission had to adjourn the meeting for 15 minutes while they resolved the issue, reports said.

The executive secretary of the group told WGNO-TV that there were multiple “fraudulent” accounts involved, but once the meeting resumed there weren’t any further interruptions.

The PSC meetings have to be held publicly under law and come with a public comment period, which made the meetings susceptible to the X-rated interruption, the secretary said.

Included on the to-do list for the meeting was a discussion of reports from utility companies about the massive service outages as a result of Ida, which hit the Louisiana coast in late August.

Ida knocked out power to more than 1 million customers, The Advocate stated – and 25,000 are still without electricity after the monster storm.
