Bella Thorne has decided to have a mini-rant in her Insta stories about the fact everyone is “following [in her] footsteps” to OnlyFans even though she was the main person who got slammed over it a few months ago.
Thorne pointed out what she claims are double standards after she was dragged for her pivot to OnlyFans, only for other people in showbiz to follow her to the online sexwork platform without copping similar flak. Recent names include singer Austin Malone and even Thorne’s own little sister Kaili.
Of course, none of this acknowledges the fact people got made at Thorne for misusing the platform by promising to post nudes and then never following through.
Following that little incident, the platform introduced a not-so-little tip limit which screwed over actual sex workers while Thorne herself had already netted a cool $2 mill at the time.
Thorne later apologised, but not everyone was pleased. Anyway, here’s what she had to say this time around.
“Everyone jumping on OnlyFans but I took the hit for doing it firsttttt coooool,” Thorne wrote on Instagram.
“Legit everyone in my newsfeed following in my footsteps,” she added in a follow-up story.
“But when I was getting heat y’all were scared.
“This keeps happening to me hahahah.”
Bella Thorne really thinks she invented OnlyFans, huh.
Double standards suck. So does pretending to be the victim.
Plenty of OnlyFans users have already made clear that it’s the way Thorne used the platform that’s a problem, not just the fact she’s famous and has a huge social media following.
Any celeb who uses OnlyFans in a way that screws over the platform’s original creators opens themselves up to valid criticism.
Pointing out supposed copycats to deflect from that criticism is kind of a shit thing to do and doesn’t really help your argument.Image: Instagram / @bellathorne
