The Bachelor star Holly Kingston is cruelly trolled for saying she doesn’t want to be a sex worker on OnlyFans: ‘Aren’t you using your body to sell products as well?’
The influencer, 28, sparked outage on Tuesday when she and boyfriend Jimmy Nicholson, 33, suggested that selling naked photos isn’t ’empowering’ and that reality stars should promote charities instead of ‘grabbing money’ by selling nudes.
Critics have since retaliated by leaving cruel comments on Holly’s latest sponsored Instagram post.

Holly shared a video of herself trying on luxury fashion items, and some people argued that trying on clothes for money is no different to taking them off.
‘Very disappointed to see you using your body like this. Next time please just spend the time donating to charity,’ one troll sarcastically wrote.
‘Look at you using yourself to sell a product. But OnlyFans is bad! Got it,’ another commented.

Playing in the background of Holly’s video was a cover version of Oh, Pretty Woman.
Critics couldn’t help but point out the irony of Holly using the song that inspired the 1990 film Pretty Woman – which tells the tale of a rich man falling in love with a sex worker.
‘Ironic song considering your stance on sex work,’ one commented.
‘Using Pretty Woman as the song for selling thigh high boots straight out of a movie about female sex work is a beautiful ironic twist here,’ another agreed.

However, several fans rushed to defend Holly and her stance on OnlyFans.
‘All the people giving Holly grief SHUT UP! Just because Holly and Jimmy have a different view to other celebrities who want to sell themselves online doesn’t mean they deserve to be bullied by you! Grow the hell up!’ one supporter raged.
Another added: ‘Thank you for being so strong to stand in your truth despite online harassment from other public figures trying to force an apology out of you.’

‘That person judging you is not the moral compass for us all and it is refreshing to have someone with class share their views,’ they added.
Jimmy and Holly shared their thoughts on OnlyFans during an Instagram video on Tuesday.
Uploading a video to Instagram, the pair slammed the racy platform and said that reality stars were just trying to ‘grab money’ by selling nude photos and videos of themselves online.

‘We get this question a lot and we figured now is a good time to just answer it once and for all,’ Holly began.
‘No judgment towards anyone who does have OnlyFans, but I think there has been a little bit of a trend in people coming off reality shows and leveraging that degree of fame to then sell nudes online.’
Jimmy added that his issue with the increasing number of reality stars joining OnlyFans is that they claim they’re doing it for ‘female and male empowerment’.
‘I think you should be a role model to the future generation,’ the wholesome couple said
‘I think that’s a load of crap, personally,’ he quipped. ‘I think you should be a role model to the future generations.
‘If you want to celebrate male or female empowerment, start a charity, donate to breast cancer awareness or prostate cancer awareness,’ he continued.
‘I think it’s a way to grab money, and [you should] think about the example you’re setting for the future generations, for your kids when they’re in school.’
Holly then weighed in with her thoughts on the controversial subject.
The couple’s commentary drew the ire of Bachelor reject Abbie Chatfield (pictured) who lashed out at the pair in a lengthy Instagram rant on Wednesday
‘Our view: Normalising selling naked photos on the internet doesn’t equal male/female empowerment,’ she wrote. ‘If this is your view, totally fine. Just won’t be something we’ll be doing. Thanks for coming to our TED Talk.’

‘The tone of voice of no judgement but here’s our judgement is not ideal but no one actually asked you thought of what the morality around Only Fans or sex work was,’ Abbie chided the duo.

She continued: ‘They just asked if you would do it and to be honest I don’t think anyone really cared that much. I just kind of felt like a vessel to speak about your dismissal of people who do Only Fans.’
Abbie went on to say she isn’t sure how it’s any different from her or Jimmy and Holly using their ‘fame’ to make money on Instagram or social media.
‘It’s the same we commodify content but obviously sex workers are very different in the way they are marginalised… and treated.’
