OnlyFans, the online platform where users share obscene videos and photos for money, announced that it will remove pornographic content by making a statement the other day. The company says the content ban is “necessary” to secure banking and payment services.
OnlyFans tweeted in support of adult content creators after backlash against the company’s new policy that bans p*rnography on the platform. In a tweet on Saturday, the company said the p*rn ban was “necessary” to secure banking and payment services on the platform.
In its first tweet for sex workers, whose contributions to the platform’s growth are widely acknowledged, the company added that it “works day and night to find solutions.”
Last week, the company said it would ban “any content containing sexually explicit behavior” from October 1 to “ensure the long-term sustainability of the platform.”
Currently, the company’s rules prohibit content that is “illegal, fraudulent, defamatory, hateful, discriminatory, threatening or harassing, or that praises or encourages violence or any illegal activity.”
The platform’s rules further state that it prohibits anything that “could exploit, harm, or attempt to exploit or harm anyone under the age of 18.”
While OnlyFans said that posts containing nudity will still be allowed, it has not yet clarified exactly how their policy distinguishes between sexually explicit content and nudity.
It is also unclear how much of the content or users on the platforms will be removed after the new rule.
Bella Thorne Criticized After Onlyfans Decision
After the OnlyFans decision, Bella Thorne, who broke the record by joining the site and earning $ 1 million in 24 hours, reacted. Social media users criticized Bella for ’caused the domino effect that ended OnlyFans’.
After the announcement of the ban, top-earning OnlyFans performer Andi Land recently said, “It’s no secret that they’re trying to appeal to investors. Many of these investors fear the stigma associated with the adult industry. “I’m disappointed, but I can’t say I’m surprised,” she said.
