Bella Thorne has been accused of ‘ruining OnlyFans,’ after gathering a record-breaking $1 million during her first 24 hours on the site.
Thorne joined OnlyFans and opened up her account last week, charging users $20 a month to see her content.
However, the 22-year-old former Disney star is now facing backlash from other OnlyFans content creators as well as subscribers after she was accused of lying about creating nude content to get more money.
A screenshot shared to Twitter alleges to show Thorne promising ‘no clothes naked’ content to a subscriber if they unlock three extra images at the expensive price tag of $200.
But, a subsequent screenshot of her sharing an article about her OnlyFans account appears to contradict this, quoting Thorne as saying: “Also noooo I’m not doing nudity!!!”
Angry content creators have also taken to Twitter to complain about the caps that have now been put in place for ‘pay per view’ content.
“So Bella Thorne scammed her fans and sent out a $200 non-nude pay per view. Is that why the max pay per view price is $50 f*cking dollars now?? And why fans can only tip $100 f*cking dollars?? Because this dumb b*tch scammed everyone and OnlyFans and getting massive amounts of chargebacks???” one content creator blew the frustration on Twitter.
Pedestrian reports that the new policies to OnlyFans, seemingly thanks to Thorne, means some content creators will have to wait for a month before being paid, which could be detrimental to those who, unlike Thorne, rely on it for income.
The new rules also restrict how much money the models can earn, as users are reporting new limits on donations and tips from subscribers.
“She’s f*cked up so many peoples’ job while already being a successful actress with money already. The greed celebrities have for money when they already have boat loads of it amazes me,” one subscriber said.
“OnlyFans will delete her account,” another suggested, “She is doing fraud.”
“First Rubi Rose now Bella? Pretty gross to see mainstream celebrities basically making a joke out of Onlyfans, as if there weren’t enough people who didn’t trust the site,” a fourth angry user wrote.
In addition, Thorne has been criticized for posting content that is reported to be almost identical to the pictures already posted on her Instagram account.
In an interview with PAPER, Thorne explained she wanted to do OnlyFans because it ‘is the first platform where [she] can fully control [her] image; without censorship, without judgment, and without being bullied online for being [herself]’.
For now, Thorne’s OnlyFans page is designed to be a place to ‘really just be more personal with my fans’, with ‘good night and good morning messages’ and other tailored content available.
