Bella Thorne is facing a lot of heat and has issued an apology to OnlyFans users after facing backlash from other users and subscribers. She made her debut on the subscription based website, breaking a record - earning $1 million dollars (USD) in her first day and reportedly bringing in more than $2 million overall.
Many of the people who subscribed are requesting refunds since they claimed she didn’t hold up her end of the bargain by not posting a full nude photo like she allegedly advertised.
During the Controversy, OnlyFans quietly issued a $50 cap on pay per view messages and a $100 cap on tips, without warning or announcing any policy changes. OnlyFans also reportedly extended the timeline for payouts from seven days to 30 days in some countries. Many believe this change was due to the Bella situation although they made a statement saying “We can confirm that any changes to transaction limits are not based on any one user.”
Bella apologized with a number of tweets saying,
“I wanted to bring attention to the site, the more people on the site the more likely of a chance to normalize the stigmas, And in trying to do this I hurt you. I have risked my career a few times to remove the stigma behind sex work, porn, and the natural hatred people spew..
...I am a mainstream face and when you have a voice, a platform, you try to use you in helping others and advocate for something bigger than yourself. Again in this process I hurt you and for that I’m truly sorry."
Bella claims that she joined OnlyFans as part of a promotion for a new movie with Sean Baker, who directed The Florida Project. Sean is claiming this is not actually the case, setting the record straight saying,
“I would like to make it clear that the news of me making a film (documentary or fiction narrative) about OnlyFans and using Bella Thorne as research is false. I’m NOT attached to this project. I’m actually in development on two features that I’ve put years of research and love in to and neither of these films have anything to do with Ms. Thorne or Onlyfans.”
We found out over the weekend that actor Chadwick Boseman passed away after his long battle with colon cancer at the age of 43. The star of Black Panther was diagnosed in 2016 but it was not public knowledge.
