OnlyFans is currently trending in Malaysia on Twitter and it’s for the most unexpected (yet expected) reason ever.
Recently, a youth member of the Malaysian Islamic Party (PAS), Hezry Yasin was called out for following OnlyFans on social media right after he schooled Twitter-users regarding aurat.
If you have been living under a rock, OnlyFans is adult content sharing platform where content creators can share videos, photos, and even chances to chat one-on-one… for a price.
The platform is extremely popular for the adult entertainment industry. In fact, The New York Times even ran a story in early 2019 that claimed OnlyFans had changed sex work forever, dubbing it “the paywall of porn”.
OnlyFans has been around since 2016 and is widely used by sex workers, though some celebrities have also recently begun using it to earn extra income by selling exclusive X-rated pictures.
While most internet-users know what’s up with OnlyFans, the PAS youth member defended himself by saying that he only followed OnlyFans’ account for… fitness workouts. Mhmm, yeah, sure – maybe YouTube just wasn’t enough.
“My friends and I were following the progress of a fitness trainer, who mentioned that he would share more in-depth knowledge on OnlyFans,” Hezry said today – while also failing to mention who the fitness trainer is. He created a Twitter thread explaining the motive behind his decision and even compared it to another video-sharing platform, TikTok.
Click the tweet below to unravel the thread:
Semalam sebelum tidur bukak twitter jap…viral isu page onlyfans tu sampai pagi ni.
So ini penjelasan saya mcm mana saya follow akaun tu.
Ini thread kisahnya.
Nota: saya terangkan, yang terima, terima…yang tak terima dan terus fitnah, saya serahkan anda pada Allah

While his tweet couldn’t be replied to (thanks to Twitter’s new reply-blocking feature), many quoted his tweets calling his explanation BS and some just straight-up shaded him in separate tweets.
Take a look at what netizens had to say:
Nyahhhh…onlyfans takkan sama dengan tiktok nyahh,everyone knows that – a simple googles description can tell you that. Utk allegedly professional learning facilitator how can you do no research for these types of sites? Come back with better alasan ler nyahhh.. https://t.co/aRkaTyKSWp
