Bella Thorne Faces Backlash for $ 2 Million Salary on OnlyFans
Not everyone was impressed with the actress and singer Bella thorne‘s $ 2 million in transportation in less than a week on the platform by subscription Only fans, in which sex workers, as well as celebrities and mainstream influencers, charge fees to access content that could be censored elsewhere.
Three days after a Los Angeles Times story about the feat of the former disney starThorne was hit with backlash as she trended on Twitter. People accused her of causing changes to the rules of what the creators of OnlyFans can ask for, as they said she manipulated subscribers into overcharging a one-time event she suggested would be racy more than he was. (Its subscribers regularly pay $ 20 per month.)
People identifying themselves as the creators of OnlyFans on social media have also claimed that the company’s payments have been delayed due to Thorne’s massive payment. They blamed Thorne for, as several people have said, ruining OnlyFans for people who particularly need an income now, just as the coronavirus has closed businesses and destroyed the economy.
In a statement, the company said Thorne was not the reason, but made changes: “Transaction limits are set to help avoid overspending and to allow our users to continue using the site safely. We appreciate all feedback received since this change was implemented and will continue to review these limits. Our goal remains to provide the best possible platform for the OnlyFans community. We can confirm that changes to transaction limits are not based on a single user. “
Thorne’s rep did not respond to Yahoo Entertainment’s request for comment.
Some of those unhappy with Thorne have pointed out that for her, creating content for OnlyFans is just a side business. While Thorne did making a movie for Pornhub Last year, she revealed that her foray into the website was actually part of her acting research for an upcoming film.
“This is a feature that we are looking for as I am currently experiencing it,” Thorne told the Los Angeles Times. “What are the ins and outs? What does a platform like this do to its users? What is the connection between your life and your life in the world of OnlyFans? … How can this change your life for the worse and for the better? How far are you ready to go and how far are you going to want go? You can be me, or that talented girl from Montana, and OnlyFans could be life-changing – if you want to, of course.
Thorne told the Time she teamed up with director Sean Baker. However, Baker said Friday night that he was “NOT committed to this project.”
