Bella Thorne Sobs While Addressing Whoopi Goldberg Who Slut-Shamed Her For Taking Nude Selfies

Earlier this week, we reported on the terrible ordeal that happened to actress Bella Thorne. A hacker attempted to threaten the star with nude images he had taken from her phone. He told her that if she didn’t give him money, he’d release the photos to the public. While Thorne tried to talk him out of doing that — because he’d threatened other celebs — she decided to take power away from him and the release the images herself. The majority of people on social media applauded her for taking control of the situation and releasing the pictures herself. There was one person, however, that didn’t think she deserved any praise.

“The View” co-host Whoopi Goldberg said Bella Thorne shouldn’t have been taking nude pictures in the first place.

“Listen, if you’re famous, I don’t care how old you are, you don’t take nude pictures of yourself,” Whoopi said on the show. “When they’re hacking you, they’re hacking all of your stuff. So, whether it’s one picture or a million pictures, once you take that picture, it goes into the cloud, and it’s available to any hacker who wants it. If you don’t know that in 2019, that this is an issue… you don’t get to do that.”

Thorne fired back emotionally at Goldberg and called her out for what she says was essentially slut-shaming.

On her Insta-story, Thorne addressed Goldberg directly, saying ” “Dear Whoopi, I have loved u for so long, but honestly I’m so displeased and saddened by your response to my [leak]. Blaming girls for taking photos in the first place? Is sick and honestly disgusting,” she said, “I’m offended for anyone out there who has ever taken a sexy photo.”

She also said that she would no longer be making a scheduled appearance on “The View” saying that she did not want to expose her own audience to such negative thoughts.

“I’m not gonna lie. I wanna say that I feel pretty disgusting. You know, I feel pretty disgusting, Whoopi, knowing that everyone has seen my shit. And I just wanna say that me watching this interview made me feel really bad about myself. Shame. On. You. Whoopi. Shame on you. And Shame on you for putting that public opinion just out there like that for every young girl to think that they’re disgusting for even taking a photo like that. Shame on you,” she said. “Saying if you take a sexy photo then it basically deserves to get leaked, like, don’t be surprised at all and don’t feel sorry for yourself. So, if I go out to a party drinking and I wanna dance on the dance floor, do I deserve to be raped too? Because to me, I see those two things as really f*cking similar.”

Goldberg’s words are a clear reflection of an older generation’s mindset.

We have seen her time and time again, be degrading of things going on in popular culture. She hates talking about topics that have to do with men, dating, marriage, and definitely anything about reality TV.

We totally understand that “The View” is about having different perspectives, but Goldberg should have been a bit more sensitive about this topic and not come down so hard on her. People know there’s a risk when taking nude selfies, but that doesn’t give people the right to violate them by hacking, blackmailing or shaming them.

We are very curious to know how this topic will play out on “The View.”

Bella Thorne Made $2 Million On OnlyFans, Now She’s Apologizing To The Platform’s Sex Workers

Bella Thorne Made $2 Million On OnlyFans, Now She’s Apologizing To The Platform’s Sex Workers

Bella Thorne is an actress, director, singer, model an OnlyFans record-breaker. Now she’s an apologizer.

The “Shake It Up” star might have risen to fame with her roles for Disney but in recent years she has carved out a career and profile for herself that promotes sex positivity and openness. Last year (in August) Thorne announced that she would make her directorial debut on Pornhun, a pornographic video sharing and pornography website. Her film, “Her & Him” earned her a Vision Award at the second annual PornHub Awards in Los Angeles. Soon after the win, Thorne announced that she had signed a partnership with the website to help change the company’s flagging algorithm.

It looks like Thorne isn’t done with taking home wins related to the adult entertainment industry though.

Last week, Thorne broke the internet when it was revealed that she had set a new record on the subscription-based social platform OnlyFans.

Within just 24 hours of joining the platform, Thorne hit the OnlyFans jackpot and set the record by becoming the platform’s first member to earn $1 million in just one day. By Wednesday, Thorne managed to rake in an additional $2 million.

Speaking to Los Angeles Times, Thorne outlined her plans for earnings from her account, stating that she plans to use her earnings for her production company and charity. To access Thorne’s content on the platform, fans have to pay a $20 a month subscription fee. According to The LA Times, Thorne intents on using her OnlyFans account as research for her next independent feature with director Sean Baker of The Florida Project and Tangerine.

“It’s a feature we are researching as I’m living it currently,” Thorne explained. “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.”

Soon after, the reveal, however, backlash sparked when OnlyFans announced new restrictions on the platform.

The site announced that they would be capping fan tips at $100 and pay-per-view post charges at $50. It was also revealed that the waiting period to transfer funds from the site to a bank account will take 30 days. Users were quick to blame Thorne for the changes.

“You scammed people, which in return made us look like scammers and not the hard-working people we are,” one sex worker commented.

“I hurt you and for that I’m truly sorry,” Thorne apologized in a series of tweets. “I wanted to bring attention to the site, the more people on the site the more likely of a chance to normalize the stigmas.”

OnlyFans is a paid subscription platform that is mostly known for its adult and NSFW content.

Recently, “WAP” rapper Cardi B announced her plans to invest time in the platform to better connect with fans who truly support her. “I have a lot of people that claim they don’t like me,” Cardi B explained in an interview with CNN. “I want to have conversations with my real fans.”

The former reality star went onto explain that she won’t be appearing nude on the platform but intends to share content with fans that will take them behind the scenes of her projects.

Two Women Thought It Was A Good Idea To Dress Up In KKK Robes And Parade Themselves Around Black People

Two Women Thought It Was A Good Idea To Dress Up In KKK Robes And Parade Themselves Around Black People

Why In 2019 Some People Would Think That A KKK Costume Or A Bloodied And Bruised Makeup Look Are ‘Cute’ Is Above Us

Bella Thorne Angered Her Followers For Bloodied And Bruised Halloween Selfies: ‘Stop Glamorizing Domestic Abuse’

Bella Thorne’s Bruised And Bloodied Selfies And Two Women Dressed Up As KKK Members in DTLA Riled Up The Internet This Halloween

Just when we thought we’d made it through this year’s Halloween season without any inappropriate or problematic Halloween costumes, Bella Thorne posted her look on Instagram. A lot of the actress’ followers were offended by her makeup, saying that it looked too similar to a domestic abuse victim. And in Downtown L.A., a group of Hispanic women thought it was ok to dress up as KKK members until people snatched their hoods off. Here’s what went down. 

Bella Thorne wanted to show off her makeup skills in a bloodied and bruised look —but instead, was dragged by her followers.

Instagram @bellathorne

Before unveiling her actual Halloween costume as a sexy Girl Scout, Bella Thorne took to Instagram to show off her makeup skills by posting a photo of herself looking bruised and bloodied. Looking like someone had punched her in the face, the actress captioned the series of three photos with: “Hire me for your Halloween makeup I got you boo ???????????? ????????????.”

The actor riled up her followers who were quick to assume she’d been hurt.

Although the caption made it pretty clear that she hadn’t actually been hurt, many of her followers said the pictures were jarring and worrying. One wrote: “My heart dropped. I immediately got angry that someone hit you. This is uhhh fkn scary.” Another added; “Almost said, are u okay, lol.”

Her followers called the actor out for ‘glamorizing’ domestic abuse.

They also called Bella out for “glamorizing” domestic violence and said it should never be used for aesthetic purposes. Some commenters said: “Why is glamorizing being physically abused culturally appropriate during Halloween?”, “I feel this is too close to physical abuse, you’re crossing a fine line here.”

“That’s kinda insensitive to real victims of DV.”

“I’m just sickened and so disappointed in you. What a platform you have…and misuse it like this. Sickening, Bella.”

The actor is known for her wild, bold and colorful looks —hair and makeup included. The photos posted on October 30, featured a cut lip and bruises on her jaw and eye.

Commenters thought her makeup would be triggering to those who have experienced abuse in their own lives. Bella has previously spoken out about her own struggles with physical and sexual abuse in the past, so it’s surprising to see her showcase such a makeup look. 

As part of the Time’s Up movement, Bella Thorne spoke up about her own experience of sexual and physical abuse as a child last year.

“I was sexually abused and physically growing up from the day I can remember till I was 14..when I finally had the courage to lock my door at night and sit by it,” she wrote on Instagram. “All damn night. Waiting for someone to take advantage of my life again. Over and over I waited for it to stop and finally it did. But some of us aren’t as lucky to get out alive. Please, today stand up for every soul Mistreated. #timesup”

Bella went on to debut her actual Halloween costume on Instagram the following day and has yet to respond to comments regarding her previous post.

And speaking of insensitive and problematic costumes, these two Hispanic women in DTLA thought that dressing up as KKK members would be funny —until it wasn’t.

A group of Hispanic women dressed as Ku Klux Klan members in downtown Los Angeles, on Halloween night and roamed around town, sparking outrage and alarm. Videos of their costumes were shown in several social media posts. One clip shows a woman telling the cloaked person to take her hood off until someone finally snatches it off her head. 

One of the women who confronted the insensitive trick-or-treaters took to Facebook to share a post about how things went down.

Racist women get KKK mask snatched off them and ran out of DTLA #share #Melaninispowerful“THIS SHIT ISN’T FUNNY”“Oh so you thought this was funny”I’m not a bully nor am I a killer but this type of shit needs to stop, before somebody gets killed or we start a riot as people. Last night Two Mexican women walked down the streets of LA wearing KU KLUX KLAN outfits thinking shit was funny and “allegedly trying to scare ppl” so we snatched their mask off and had a little conversation… this isn’t just disrespectful to black ppl but all people who fought for our rights this is disrespectful to our people my people your people(to The women). “The same people you two are supporting is the same folks supporting deportation of your ppl and your walking #DTLATo “scare people” “ she goes on to say “I am right and I should be mad” that’s the moment I could’ve and should’ve knocked her ass out but unfortunately we would’ve been the ones behind bars for being black in America and fighting the same fight out ancestry fought, we didn’t put our hands on them, we took those mask off and kindly escorted them out of LA..

“I’m not a bully nor am I a killer but this type of shit needs to stop before somebody gets killed or we start a riot as people. Last night Two Mexican women walked down the streets of LA wearing KU KLUX KLAN outfits thinking shit was funny and “allegedly trying to scare ppl” so we snatched their mask off and had a little conversation,” wrote Ashley Williams, one of the people who confronted the women about the disrespectful costumes. 

“This isn’t just disrespectful to black ppl but all people who fought for our rights this is disrespectful to our people my people your people (to the women). The same people you two are supporting is the same folks supporting deportation of your ppl…”

The video compiles a few clips of what went down and how the two hooded women were confronted by a small mob of people.

The nearly two-minute-long video posted to Twitter shows the two women standing on the sidewalk as a mob of people try to take their hoods. Later on they try to enter a smoke shop as everyone around them booed. “Don’t ever wear that sh*t in your life,” said the female rapper Shatown Johnson to the hooded woman. “You’re right,” replied the woman in the ridiculous costume after being confronted. 

Why these women thought it would be cute or “funny” to dress up as Klan members for Halloween? Who knows! But just like Facebook user Ashley Williams put it on her post: “Don’t play like this ppl of America cause this generation isn’t gonna let that shit go down!”
