A Porn Site Is Paying to Remove Its Logo From a Man’s Face

What about the other logos though?

It looks like there’s a happy ending–not in a weird way–for Billy Gibby, after all! A few months ago, the 32-year-old man (who also goes by Hostgator Dotcom, for those keeping track) said he obviously regretted his decision of getting porn website logos tattooed on his face for extra cash.

Last month, he told VICE that perhaps he shouldn’t have gotten tons of porn company logos permanently plastered to his face since it pissed off his wife and he even lost his job. After being moved by his plight, Cam4.com is now offering to pay Mr. Giddy to get all of the logos removed off his face. He shared the happy news with VICE:

Yeah, so the website cam4.com is going to pay for the tattoo removal on my face. They advertised on my face a long time ago, read the VICE story, and decided they wanted to help me—they’re just doing it to be nice. I had my first laser removal treatment last week.

Since Mr. Giddy isn’t bound by any contracts, the logos can be removed whenever. But in case you’re interested in propagating his version of the American dream, Mr. Gibby is not yet done selling #ads. He said his funeral will be “entirely sponsored by websites” because it would be “funny.”
