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.

She Moved Up The Ranks From Janitor To Nurse Practitioner, Now She’s Viral

Talk about a dream fulfilled.

For ten years, Jaines Andrades harbored her desire to move up from her custodial position at Baystate Medical Center in Springfield, Massachusetts to nurse. Now, ten years later, as an RN she’s excelled well past her drams.

Andrades worked her way through nursing school while working at Baystate Medical in Springfield, Massachusetts, as a janitor.

Ten years ago, Andrades accepted a position as a custodial staff member at Baystate Medical Center with big dreams of being a nurse. Born to Puerto Rican parents Andrades moved from her family home in Springfield, MA in 2005 when she was 14 years old. From there she and enrolled as a student at Putnam Technical-Vocational Academy with hopes of moving up the ranks as a nurse.

“As I got older and approached graduation I just didn’t see how a little girl like me could ever become a lawyer. I didn’t see it as something that was possible for me, so I got discouraged from the idea,” Andrades explained according to Masslive.com.

That all changed after she struck up a conversation with a nurse during a doctor’s visit for her mother. According to Andrades, the nurse tipped her off on the benefits of nursing. “He told me about the program to become a nurse, and, the more he talked, I just thought, ‘Yeah, I can do this.’ It’s a respectable profession, and I could provide for myself financially, so the idea grew from there.”

Soon after she enrolled at Holyoke Community College, ticked off all of her pre-requisites and a handful of introductory nursing classes. Then, in 2010, she transferred to Elms College.

The same year she transferred, Andrades applied for a job in Baystate’s Environmental Services Department and became a custodian at the hospital.

“It’s tough to be the person that cleans. If I had to go back and do it again, I would. It’s so worth it,” Andrades explained in an interview with WBZ-TV.

In a Facebook post, Andrades wrote about her journey from hospital custodian to nurse practitioner and posted a picture of all three of her IDs.

Andrades’ story went viral after she shared her experience to Facebook.

Speaking about her journey from custodian to nurse practitioner, Andrades shared a picture of all three of her IDs.

“Even if it was cleaning, as long as I was near patient care I’d be able to observe things. I thought it was a good idea,” the RN explained in her interview before sharing that her favorite part of being a nurse has been her ability to provide patients with comfort. “I just really love the intimacy with people.”

“Nurses and providers, we get the credit more often but people in environmental and phlebotomy and dietary all of them have such a huge role. I couldn’t do my job without them,” she went onto explain. “I’m so appreciative and like in awe that my story can inspire people,” Andrades told WBZ-TV. “I’m so glad. If I can inspire anyone, that in itself made the journey worth it.”
