Holly Kingston and Jimmy Nicholson's comments about OnlyFans divide the internet

''Why do they get to decide what is empowering for others?''

Jimmy Nicholson and Holly Kingston have divided fans over their remarks about OnlyFans.
Whilst plenty of former Married At First Sight stars have flocked to the adult content site in recent weeks, the season nine Bachelor couple have made it clear they won't be joining anytime soon.
"We get this question a lot and we figured now is a good time to just answer it once and for all," Holly said in a video Q&A series posted to her Instagram Stories.

"No judgement to 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."
Reality TV fans have certainly noticed the trend Holly mentioned, especially with the debate surrounding Jackson Lonie and Olivia Frazer joining the site after appearing on TV.
Jimmy also appeared in Holly's Stories and shared his own perspective, which was a little more direct than his girlfriend's.
"My problem with it is people saying they're doing it because it's female empowerment or male empowerment, I think that's a load of s—t personally," he said.
"I think you need to be a role model to future generations… if you want to celebrate male or female empowerment, start a charity, donate to breast cancer awareness, prostate cancer awareness, do these things."
The former Bachelor added that he believes TV stars join OnlyFans as "a way to grab money" and urged those who had signed up to the platform to think about the "example" they're setting for younger Australians.
Holly added a final statement in the form of a caption on the last clip, which outlined their view that "normalising selling naked photos on the internet doesn't equal male/female empowerment".
The couple added that while they have absolutely no issue with people disagreeing with them or being active on OnlyFans, it's not something they're interested in doing.

However, the couple's remarks didn't sit well with many reality TV fans.
"It's giving high school 'no offence but' energy," one social media user wrote, while another said: "Did he really just tell people to start a charity instead of doing OF? How many bills are charities paying these days Jim."
"The very definition of privilege," another comment read. "Gross opinion.. why do they get to decide what is empowering for others?"
However, many fans were in agreement with Jimmy and Holly's take on OnlyFans.
"Finally somebody said it 👏," one wrote, while another commented: "LOVE that they voiced their opinion. Everyone is entitled to one."
