Actress and singer Bella Thorne faces backlash for her $2M payday in less than a week after joining the subscription-based platform OnlyFans.
Bella Thorne sure knows how to grab our attention.
Bella Thorne previously teased on Instagram the type of content fans can see on her OnlyFans page once you subscribe to her account for $20 a month. She later clarified that it won't include nudity.
Bella Thorne became the subject as she trended on Twitter.
Bella Thorne said she’s using her experience with the website as research for a movie she wants to make and star in with Sean Baker. The director is known for his raw, dynamic depictions of the working class through indie features like Tangerine and The Florida Project.
Bella Thorne did direct a film for Pornhub last year, she revealed that her foray onto the website is actually part of her acting research.
People identifying themselves as OnlyFans creators on social media claimed payments from the company had been delayed because of Bella Thorne’s massive payout. They blamed Bella Thorne for, as several people put it, ruining OnlyFans for people who especially need an income now, just as the coronavirus has shuttered businesses and wrecked the economy.
In a statement, the company "OnlyFans" said that Bella Thorne was not the reason why they made changes: "Transaction limits are set to help prevent overspending and to allow our users to continue to use the site safely. We value all of the feedback received since this change was implemented and we will continue to review these limits. Our objective remains to provide the best platform possible for the OnlyFans community. We can confirm that any changes to transaction limits are not based on any one user."
Bella Thorne told the L.A. Times "It’s a feature we are researching as I’m living it currently," “What are the ins and outs? What does a platform like this do to its users? What’s the connective material between your life and your life inside the world of OnlyFans? ... How can it change your life for the worse and the better? How far are you willing to go, and how far do you want to go? You can be me, or this talented girl from Montana, and OnlyFans could change your life — if you want it to, of course.”
