In July 2018, Frederick Allen, an amateur porn star with a hefty social media following across multiple platforms, recorded himself having sex in one of the snack aisles at Hometown gas station, which sits at the corner of 35th and Townsend streets in the city's Roosevelt Grove neighborhood, and proceeded to post it on Pornhub, FOX6 reported.

However, the video, which has since been viewed over 700,000 times, may mark an end for the business. City representatives first caught wind of its existence after a resident saw it online and reported it to officials.

Hometown referred FOX Business to the store's owner, Kulwant Dhillon, who has not responded to requests for comment at the time of publication.

Unsurprisingly, Twitter users took notice.

"People who have never been to Milwaukee: 'Nothing interesting ever happens in Milwaukee,'" Matt Linder, content marketing manager at Rakuten Marketing, wrote on Twitter.

In July 2019, Milwaukee Common Council voted to suspend the gas station's business license for 20 days after Allen's video "35th and Townsend" surfaced on the privately-owned porn site.

"We can't allow these things to go on in our community," District 7 Alderman Khalif J. Rainey said during testimony before the council's licenses committee, according to FOX6.  "Keep in mind, it was right next to the chips, and across from the sunflower seeds."

Kool Petroleum, the gas station's parent company, then sued the city over its business license, FOX6 reported. A county judge issued a temporary injunction that will allow the gas station to stay open until the matter is resolved.

Representatives for Kool Petroleum told FOX Business they are fighting to get the video removed from Pornhub.

Allen reportedly makes a profit from creating his steamy videos, all of which are shot in public places throughout the Milwaukee area, according to the outlet.

His Pornhub channel has more than 67,000 subscribers. According to Pornhub, accountholders earn money based on the number of views a video garners times the ad rate. The rate is calculated based on the performance of ads that circulate on the video, Pornhub's website explains.

Pornhub and Rainey did not respond to FOX Business' request for comment.
