Bella Throne has become the first person on OnlyFans to make one million dollars in 24 hours and since then, she’s more than doubled that.
The 22-year-old threw a bit of a curveball when she revealed that she was going to be on OnlyFans, but her stunt seems to have paid off as she’s made a shedload of cash from the endeavour.
Thorne announced that she would be on the saucy social media site for a number of reasons, but primarily that she was researching for a film she’s working on with director Sean Baker.
She told The Times via text:
“It’s a feature we are researching as I’m living it currently.
“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“.
Furthermore, in an interview with PAPER Magazine, Thorne revealed part of the reason why she decided to join OnlyFans.
“OnlyFans is the first platform where I can fully control my image; without censorship, without judgment, and without being bullied online for being me.”
Needless to say now though, certain people aren’t happy with the actions of Thorne, as they believe that she’s taking the money and attention away from sex workers who genuinely need it.
Sex worker Ellamourne said about the 22-year-old:
“The perspective she’ll gain won’t be representative of what most people experience as content creators on the platform.
“I am certain she’ll deal with some of the same issues — fans crossing boundaries, scammers, etc. But at the end of the day she is a celebrity and wields a large amount of privilege.
“Unless the intent is to drive the conversation toward decriminalisation of sex work, I’ll be disappointed“.
Another sex worker, writer, and cohost of the Peepshow Podcast Jessie Sage, then added:
“To witness a celebrity gentrifying a platform and making obscene amounts of money without acknowledging the plight of sex workers is truly a slap in the face“.
