The Bachelor’s Holly and Jimmy hit back at cancel culture following backlash from OnlyFans comments

Holly Kingston and Jimmy Nicholson have doubled down on their disparaging comments about reality stars making their living on OnlyFans.

The couple sparked outrage last Tuesday when they said selling nude photos is not “empowering” and that reality TV stars should promote charities rather than “take money.”

Despite receiving outrageous backlash, with the likes of Abbie Chatfield piling up, the pair defended their position in a statement on Instagram on Sunday.

Bachelors Holly Kingston, 28, and Jimmy Nicholson, 33, have hit back at the cancellation culture, declaring they “will not be bullied in silence” after sparking outrage last week by saying OnlyFans is not empowering. (Pictured in Sydney on December 14, 2021)

They started by saying that they only mentioned OnlyFans in their Q&A last week because so many of their followers had asked if they wanted to join the adult website.

They emphasized that they are not against sex work – nor will they be bullied into saying it is “empowerment” just because that is the politically correct view.

“Over the past year, we’ve received literally hundreds of messages assuming that because we met on a reality TV show, we’d set up an OnlyFans account. We won’t be,” they said in a joint statement.

“We have no problem with anyone working freely and legally in the sex industry, whether on OnlyFans or elsewhere.

“But like most people who have contacted us, we don’t believe this is the best way to promote male and female empowerment among young people. That’s just our opinion.’

The couple condemned the cancellation culture, revealing that they had been subjected to a… wave of ‘insulting messages, character assassination, cancellation attempts, death threats and a gross violation of the fundamental human right to feel safe in our own home’.

The pair denounced the cancellation culture, revealing that they had been subjected to a spate of “insulting messages, character assassination, cancellation attempts, death threats and a gross violation of the fundamental human right to feel safe in our own homes.”

“We believe that being ‘progressive and open-minded’ does not mean that you have the same narrow-minded worldview as other people who call themselves ‘progressive and open-minded’. It means you are willing to tolerate views that are different from your own,” they wrote.

“It is not acceptable to bully, harass or threaten anyone (either online or in the ‘real world’), whether you agree with them or not. In addition, if you have a public profile, we think it’s especially important to encourage constructive, unbiased discussion rather than attack.”

The pair doubled down on their beliefs and concluded, ‘We won’t be forced into submission; we continue to stand up for things we believe in.’

‘We are not against OnlyFans. We’re against a toxic trend that says it’s okay to bully or “cancel” people you don’t agree with just because they have a different opinion than you. In our view, that is the real threat to the empowerment of people in our society.’

The OnlyFans saga kicked off last Tuesday when Jimmy and Holly were asked during a Q&A if they would ever consider becoming creators on the subscription website.

The pair slammed the X-rated platform, saying reality stars are simply trying to “grab money” by selling nude photos and videos of themselves online.

“We get this question a lot and we thought now would be a good time to answer it once and for all,” Holly began.

“No judgment on anyone who has OnlyFans, but I think there’s been a bit of a trend of people coming off reality shows and using that level of fame and then selling nudes online.”

Jimmy added that his problem with the increasing number of reality stars joining OnlyFans is that they claim they’re doing it for “female and male empowerment.”

“I personally think that’s a lot of nonsense,” he joked. ‘I think you should be a role model for future generations.

“If you want to celebrate the empowerment of men or women, start a charity, donate to the awareness of breast cancer or prostate cancer,” he continued.

“I think it’s a way to grab money, and” [you should] think of the example you set for future generations, for your children when they are in school.’

Holly then weighed in with her thoughts on the controversial topic.

“Our view: Normalizing the sale of nude photos on the internet does not equal empowerment of men and women,” she wrote. “If this is your opinion, fine. It’s just not something we’re going to do. Thank you for coming to our TED Talk.”

The couple’s comments angered Bachelor rejection Abbie Chatfield, who lashed out at the couple on Wednesday in a lengthy Instagram tirade.

“The tone of no judgment, but here’s our judgment is not ideal, but nobody really asked you about the morality around Only Fans or sex work,” Abbie chided the duo.

“The tone of voice of no judgment, but here’s our judgment is not ideal, but nobody really asked you to think about the morality around Only Fans or sex work,” Abbie said.

She continued: ‘They just asked if you would do it and to be honest I don’t think anyone cared that much. I just felt kind of like a vessel to talk about your firing people who do Only Fans.”

Abbie went on to say she’s not sure how it’s different from her or Jimmy and Holly using their “fame” to make money on Instagram or social media.

“It’s the same thing that we commercialize content, but it’s clear that sex workers are very different in the way they are marginalized…and treated.”

OnlyFans has become a lucrative career option for Australian reality stars in recent years.

Since then, she is said to have brought in more than $100,000, while her boyfriend Jackson has followed in her footsteps by signing up as well.

Other Married At First Sight stars launching careers on OnlyFans include Jessika Power, Alana Lister, Hayley Vernon and even grandmother Mishel Karen.
