According to Pornhub’s metrics, over 741,000 searches including the word “joker” have been submitted in the four days that followed the release of the film. TMZ reports that this past Sunday searches hit a high, with over 290,000 of them submitted in the span of 24 hours. This means that a lot of people watched the incredibly creepy and depressing movie and then had the guts to feel horny and look for porn inspired by it.

Pornhub reports that superheroes and villains tend to inspire these sort of searches, no matter the content of the film. In 2016, with the release of “Suicide Squad”, Harley Quinn became the most searched prompt on different porn sites. With the release of the “Birds of Prey” trailer, which is Margot Robbie’s second time interpreting the character, the site reported a similar spike.

Since its release Joker has received pretty polarizing reviews from critics, with some calling it a masterpiece and others claiming that it’s overrated. Joaquin Phoenix is rumored to nab an Oscar nomination, so at least he can say that his role inspired something more than creepy clowny porn.
