Pornhub Pays Tribute To Prince By Changing 'P' In Name To Symbol

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) -- A porn site is paying its respects to Prince.

Pornhub changed the "P" in its name to the symbol Prince used when he identified himself by a key-like symbol with an unpronounceable name when he was trying to get out of his contract with Warner Bros.

Social media users sounded off on the porn site's tribute.

Prince's sexual nature on his albums became his trademark during his career.

Pornhub pulled an April Fools' Day prank earlier this month when people who went to the site were greeted by Cornhub, videos of corn.

Prince was found dead at his home on Thursday in suburban Minneapolis. He was 57.
