The planned image change of the content creator platform Onlyfans is not coming after all. Last week, the platform drew attention with a planned rebrand that would prohibit the offering of pornographic content – now the company is backpedaling.
Pornography on OnlyFans still allowed
Actually, all explicitly pornographic content on OnlyFans should be prohibited from 01 October 2021, but nothing will come of it. As one communicated now via Twitter, one makes a backdown:
“We have received enough pledges to support our diverse creator community and have suspended the changes planned for October 1. OnlyFans stands for inclusion and we will continue to provide a home for all content creators.”
Upon request from CNN, they confirmed that support for any content had also been pledged by banks and investors – the lack of support was key to OnlyFans seeking the image change.
Especially interesting is the statement that the corresponding adjustment was currently only suspended. OnlyFans thus reserves the right to perhaps implement the possible ban of explicitly pornographic content in the future. OnlyFans plans to send an official statement to its users shortly. OnlyFans was founded in 2016 and currently has over 130 million registered users and more than two million content creators.
