Hundreds of OnlyFans users have shared their dismay over the move, which will lead to a steep loss of income for many who turned to the site after losing their jobs during the pandemic.
One creator posted on Twitter: “I’m actually f***ing distraught by the onlyfans news and don’t know where my income will now come from, as someone with a thousand projects to fund, and in order to just be able to simply eat & buy necessities – this is horrific.”
Another told the New York Times: “People are not going to be able to make ends meet. People are going to lose the roofs over their heads.”
Lilli Sabine told Buzzfeed News she makes between $100 and $1,200 from OnlyFans every month. “Unfortunately, if I can’t quickly get my fanbase over to another platform … it will take out a major chunk of my content income,” she said. “It can be super hard to convert followers over to new platforms, and I am going to have to rebuild everything from scratch if OnlyFans kicks sex workers and lewd creators off the platform.”
Model and Love Island star Megan Barton Hanson also spoke out against the decision, saying OnlyFans is “empowering” for many former glamour models.
She told the BBC: “For years women have been used for music videos or the sexy person in a James Bond film or worked for big corporations making porn. This is a way for a woman at home, struggling with the pandemic, to put out her own content at her own prices and make a taxable income.
“Now we’re being penalised for that so it’s really sad and a shame the banks wouldn’t want to accept money from women or men who are just consenting adults who want to put that media out there. It’s weird.”
Other high-profile users of the site include rapper Cardi B, Kate Moss’ sister Lotte Moss and actress Bella Thorne.
