Earlier this week, the former Big Brother star was called out for shaming OnlyFans users.

Wheatley, who is considered one of Australia’s first influencers, made rude and judgmental remarks about online sex workers in a recent YouTube video.

She said she was ‘fuming’ that some women in her industry are making good money by filming themselves performing sex acts.

Wheatley, on the other hand, takes pride in the fact she is a more traditional influencer who earns a living endorsing brands on Instagram.

She made the divisive remarks while speaking to fellow influencer Finch. 

‘I’m sorry, let me get my dildo out and f**k myself on OnlyFans,’ said Wheatley, whose Instagram account features suggestive lingerie and bikini content but nothing nude or X-rated.

‘I like to make my money by approving a product and loving a product organically and sharing it with my audience rather than f**king myself with a f**king dildo and making money,’ she continued.

Reality stars and influencers who have found success on OnlyFans include Married At First Sight’s Jessika Power and Hayley Vernon, and TikToker Anna Paul.

Wheatley went on to say that OnlyFans was responsible for ‘ending marriages’.

‘Do you know how many girls that go through their boyfriend’s phone and see that they’re secretly subscribed to a girl’s OnlyFans? That’s the end of a marriage right there. It’s actually ludicrous!’ she said.

Wheatley has since addressed the comments, apologising while telling So Dramatic! that her words were heavily taken out of context.

‘It’s not an excuse but I was speaking out of hurt and anger about someone specifically, not OnlyFans creators in general,’ she explained.

‘This someone I was talking about is a sex worker and was coming for my line of work and I was venting to a friend… I don’t actually have those views.’

Her rant was discussed this week on the Outspoken podcast, which documents the lives of Australian influencers and the social media marketing space.

The podcast’s hosts, triplets Amy, Sophie and Kate Taeuber, noted how Wheatley’s view is shared by many other influencers who broke through during the early days of Instagram.

‘It seems to be there are these two groups of influencers now, with the OG ones thinking they’re “better”,’ one of the sisters said.

‘It just sounded like she was annoyed that she either isn’t earning as much money as OnlyFans creators and has to slug it out by promoting products,’ added another. 

‘Or, it seems like potentially someone in her life has been looking at this content and it has created dramas for someone else.’

The Taeubers also pointed out that Finch did not appear to weigh in on Wheatley’s comments, but simply said: ‘Freedom of speech. Freedom to talk…’

'I make my money by approving a product and loving a product organically and sharing it with my audience rather than f**king myself with a f**king dildo and making money,' Wheatley said

‘I think what Skye said is extremely condescending and offensive,’ one of the sisters said.

‘I almost feel like… she seemed to be offended about something. I mean, she did go on about how OnlyFans creators ruin marriages.

‘I think it’s very unfair to put this on someone that does sex work. It’s actually the person’s husband that is seeking out this content.’

While the sisters appeared unimpressed by Wheatley’s statements, the trio said it was interesting to see OnlyFans dividing influencers into two rival camps.

‘It’s interesting that these two camps of influencers are being formed,’ one host said.

‘I want to know how that’s going to play out moving forward, because there’s this secretive nature of OnlyFans where it’s not really spoken about, because you can’t even say “OnlyFans” on Instagram without the content being flagged.’

The sisters then suggested some older influencers are ‘jealous’ of their younger counterparts, like OnlyFans star Anna Paul, who has a net worth of about $10million thanks in part to her popularity on the adult website.

‘There’s a lot of these influencers who are getting a little bit older and probably feeling a little bit more irrelevant,’ one of the Taeubers said.

‘Also, they can’t make the money that the top OnlyFans creators can make.’ 

Wheatley shares sons Forest and Bear with her long-time boyfriend Lachlan Waugh, whom she met on Tinder back in 2017. 

In addition to influencing and property development, she is the co-founder of clothing label Good People Apparel.
