  • A ‘creepy’ design has been painted on a community centre in Northern Ireland 
  • The drawing on a portacabin in Carrickfergus looks identical to Pornhub’s logo 
  • Reddit users are appalled by the painting describing it as ‘sick’ and ‘depressing’ 

A community youth group’s portacabin has been slammed by Reddit users for its ‘outrageous’ design. 

A viral photo showed the bright and colourful cabin in Northern Ireland plastered in graffiti and popular kids cartoons. 

But, upon closer inspection, one painting which read ‘Hub Mara’, looked virtually indistinguishable from the pornography website Pornhub’s logo. 

The conspicuous design, which stands out against the building’s green and blue background, reads: ‘Hub Mara Community Youth Group,’ in bold white letters.

The word ‘Hub’ is painted in an orange black box within a bold black rectangle – almost identical to the website’s logo.

Above the prominent design, a plastic sign reads ‘Castlemara community centre’.  

The community centre, based in Carrickfergus, offers free Bible lessons every Sunday for primary school aged children run by the Baptist church. 

Its website reads: ‘There will be Bible Lessons, Memory Verses, Quizzes and Great Songs. So come along and join the fun.’ 

Reddit users were appalled by the painting, and took to a Northern Ireland subreddit to complain. 

Hundreds of comments described the design as ‘sick’, ‘depressing’ and ‘inappropriate’, while others tried to comprehend why it was painted. 

One person suggested that the design was painted by the attendees of the youth group and the reference ‘went tight over the heads of whoever was supervising them.’

Another added: ‘Yeah I’d like to imagine the older kids were given responsibility for the art and the leaders are religious types who have no f***** clue what it’s from.’

One former youth club member added: ‘Highly possible.

‘I have literally been the young person awarded responsibility for designing and painting the entrance to the youth club I attended when I was a kid.’ 

However, one user pointed out: ‘The kids using it are mostly primary school aged. This isn’t a hilarious prank. This is outrageous.’

To which one user replied: ‘You’d be surprised at the age they start.’
