Kim Kardashian and Lil Nas X sprinkled cash among the masses for Christmas. For the rapper’s effort, he told fans to tweet various things before randomly blessing select ones with money via CashApp. Walking Dead actor Daniel Newman decided to gift his followers with a little something different: his OnlyFans account.
As we all know by now, OnlyFans is essentially social media that you pay for. It is a platform that allows creators to charge followers on a monthly fee — or even per post at times — to consume whatever content they are posting. That content is often adult material, the proliferation of which has seemed to increase during the pandemic. But this isn’t the only thing there: some drag performers like Shea Coulee use it to post behind the scenes, or otherwise exclusive drag content, as do celebrities like Cardi B and more. Bella Thorne drew the ire of many with her approach to the platform, which was followed by some new guidelines being put in place. Now, comes Newman.
“I just joined OnlyFans!” the Walking Dead and East Siders performer wrote to Twitter. “Let’s have some fun!! It will all be PG to maybe R-rated tho just warning NO X. Merry Christmas (& Definitely all photoshopped!!)”
The actor, who previously hasn’t shied away from talking about sex online, pre-loaded his account with over 30 posts.
Earlier this year, Newman became a bit of a meme after posting about having some “summer fun” with friends. He posted a photo of himself and a group of shirtless friends on vacation, writing “private island all tested negative multiple times wear a mask.” (This was prior to Kim Kardashian’s own birthday post that came with a similar addendum.) Twitter quickly turned it into a well-shared meme.
This came months after Newman railed against the government publicly after he came down with symptoms that indicated he might have the virus at the center of the ongoing pandemic but wasn’t impacted enough to get tested. He then also raised alarms when he was sent his hospital bill of over $9,000.
