What is OnlyFans, Anyway?
If you haven’t heard of OnlyFans, don’t be embarrassed. The social media platform came out in 2016, but only recently blew up in popularity. Fans sign up for exclusive content from their favorite stars for a monthly fee. The fee varies. For example, Bella Thorne’s OnlyFans is $20 a month.
The celeb chooses what type of content to provide to their subscribers. However, most of the content is racy, including topless photos. Due to the nudity and adult themes, subscribers must be 18 or older.

While fans are happy that Bella is earning money, they ask: at whose expense?
Fans SLAM Actress and Other Rich Celebs For Using the Subscription Service
For many adult entertainers, OnlyFans is their source of income during the global pandemic. For that reason, Twitter users SLAMMED Bella for co-opting the platform. In fact, before Bella and other celebs made it popular, OnlyFans was mainly a porn site frequented by adult entertainers.
Fans decry already-rich celebrities taking over the social media platform.
Bella Thorne capitalizing on a SW platform that is helping people get by during an economic collapse is shady as fuck.— Cameron (@Threewine1) August 26, 2020
Moreover, angry fans think Bella and other celebs are coming from a place of privilege. They call for the US to decriminalize prostitution if sites like OnlyFans are allowed.
I hope huge celebrities creating an OnlyFans and making huge profits inspires America to decriminalize sex work.— Dedee 🥀 (@thoughtfulbae) August 26, 2020
Bella Thorne is making millions within hrs while sex workers are dying each day due to the illegality of their profession. Change it!
Bonus documentary idea! You know what would be super cool research? If @bellathorne used her onlyfans account to promote other sex workers after she gathered her own stats. Now THAT would change somebody's life. 🥺❤— Ellie🦋 (@dovah_queen69) August 26, 2020
The actress did reveal that part of her intake from the subscription service will go to charity. She’s using The other portion to finance the above-mentioned movie.
