Yesterday, Bella Thorne went on a rant on Instagram, calling out her fellow celebs for “following [in her] footsteps” by joining OnlyFans.
Thorne has been the source of much controversy over the online sex work platform as she has copped flak for taking work away from professional sex workers.
The actress is now pissed that a bunch of other celebs, like Tyler Posey and Austin Malone, have followed her lead, all the while evading the criticism that she copped.
“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 has since been called out on Twitter in a tweet pointing out that several other famous folk were on OnlyFans before her including Cardi B, Blac Chyna and her own ex girlfriend, Tana Mongeau.
Tana retweeted the tweet, accompanied by a bunch of thinking emojis and wrote “hahahahahaahahhah.”

As you’ll see from the timestamps on the articles, Bella is the most recent of the four stars mentioned to join OnlyFans.
Page Six reports that in the first 24 hours after creating her account, Bella Thorne made an eye-watering US$1 million (AU$1.4 million) in subscriptions. She is reportedly the first user to ever make that much in their first day on the platform. At one point, Thorne’s popularity actually caused the site to crash.
A few months back, Bella Thorne told the Los Angeles Times that she’s made a staggering $2 million from her $20/month subscription service, also claiming that she’ll be donating the funds to charity.
“It’s a feature we are researching as I’m living it currently,” Thorne told PAPER of the whole OnlyFans saga. “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.”
