Actor Tyler Posey signed up for an OnlyFans account and people have a lot of thoughts.
The Teen Wolf star announced via Instagram that he created a profile with the online content subscription service.
He posted a trailer-like video featuring the young star naked while sitting on a stool with his legs crossed and playing a guitar.
As a caption, he wrote:
“You guys asked for it, and I supplied. I now have an OnlyFans. Follow the link in my bio and come get wet with me! Haha.”
He also posted the video to Twitter.
OnlyFans is a platform which allows people to post exclusive content, which followers pay a premium to access. It’s best known for its NSFW content, and has offered a new stream of income to sex workers, especially during the pandemic.
Posey’s followers immediately went into a frenzy:
But not everyone was happy.
People criticised the actor for using a platform that typically a lot of sex workers use to make a living.
They argued privileged celebrities – just like Bella Thorne – creating accounts takes away this vital income:
Some people believe celebrities using the platform makes it harder for non-celebrities because the algorithm will naturally favour them:
Others used the opportunity to point out the double standard in the backlash Bella Thorne received but people not having a problem with Posey:
Earlier this month, Bella Thorne came under fire for her presence on the subscription-based platform.
OnlyFans users allege Thorne charged $200 (£149) for a supposedly “nude” pay-per-view (PPV) photoset that turned out to be her wearing lingerie – causing some of her subscribers to complain.
They claimed a rush of people requesting refunds made OnlyFans implement a $50 cap on PPV posts, as well as earnings from the site being paid out monthly now instead of weekly.
This effectively put a cap on many sex workers’ income.
Bella Thorne has since apologised, tweeting: “I hurt you and for that I’m truly sorry.”
At the time of writing, Posey has uploaded six posts to his OnlyFans account – five pictures and one video.
