OnlyFans, a social media platform where fans pay to follow individuals who post photos and videos of themselves on the platform, said it is suspending a plan that would have banned sexually explicit content on October 1. In a tweet on Wednesday, the service said it “stands for inclusion and we will continue to provide a home for all creators.”
The website is reversing course after its plan to prohibit sexual content sparked a furor among some of its creators and users. Earlier, OnlyFans had said thewas the result of requests from banking partners and companies that handle financial transactions, a spokesperson said.
“We have secured assurances necessary to support our diverse creator community and have suspended the planned October 1 policy change,” OnlyFans said in its tweet.
The company said it would be sending an email to creators regarding its policy “shortly.”
This is a breaking story and will be updated.
