Bella Thorne’s Nude Picture Hoax Destroyed OnlyFans

Bella Thorne broke the record for the most money made on OnlyFans in a single day, raking in over a million dollars in the first 24 hours she was on the platform. But then other users started accusing her of pulling a stunt that has severely impacted the entire platform for everyone and left it much worse than it was before she joined.

As a content creator on OnlyFans, you have the ability to send a pay-per-view message to your subscribers, and it’s exactly what it sounds like; you can buy access to a post for a set price. Bella Thorne used this feature to send a nude picture to her subscribers for the low, low price of $200, which is enough to hire an okay-looking prostitute to have actual sex with you.

A lot of people, however, were willing to pay the $200 to see the former Disney star take it all off, even though you can just see her and her pierced nipples for free on Twitter (link NSFW).

The problem isn’t that Thorne didn’t actually make good on her promise and her “nude picture” wasn’t actually nude. People felt scammed and demanded their money back, and OnlyFans agreed and refunded the people who fell for Thorne’s ploy.

Here’s where the trouble starts for other users: OnlyFans took measures to avoid having this sort of thing happen in the future, and users of the site are saying it’s having a real financial impact on them.

The main that changed for users is that OnlyFans changed from holding your money in escrow for seven days to holding for thirty days. They also set a cap on the amount creators can charge for a pay-per-view post and the amount a user can tip a creator. While this theoretically limits the income users can make, the longer escrow period is the real kick in the pants for users.

Thorne issued an apology on Twitter where she claims she was just trying to help all the other users of OnlyFans.

PT1 Remove the stigma behind sex, sex work, and the negativity that surrounds the word SEX itself by bringing a mainstream face to it that’s what I was trying to do, to help bring more faces to the site to create more revenue for content creators on the site.

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… behind anything sex related. I wrote and directed a porn against the high brows of my peers and managers because I WANTED to help with the stigma behind sex.

…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.

Ps. I’m meeting with only fans about the new restrictions to find out why!!! This is fucked up and I’m sorry comment any ideas or concerns you want brought up to OF!! and send me your links and a pic so I can promote you guys

She also doesn’t know how to thread a tweet.

I don’t buy for a second that Bella Thorne just wanted to help promote OnlyFans and to legitimize sex work by scamming thirsty dudes out of money by selling them fake nude pictures. I think she wanted to make some quick m9 eye by being porn-adjacent without actually getting her tits out.

That’s not someone trying to normalize sex. “I’m just trying to normalize sex work because it’s so normal and we need to end the stigma! Also, I won’t be doing it myself, I’m a legitimate artist, silly.”

“…which is enough to hire an okay-looking prostitute to have actual sex with you.” I nearly snorted my coffee out my nose when I read that :) Thanks as always for the lols Eric.
