A self-described former pimp is going around outing OnlyFans content creators to their families and other jobs. He seems to only target women and does it under the guise of “helping” and abolishing sex work.
Screenshots show the people saying his alleged threats made them break down in tears and contemplate suicide.
OnlyFans is a perfectly legal form of sex work. People can post anything in the realm of fully clothed selfies, nudes to hardcore videos. The site gives sex workers control and ownership of their content and who gets to see it. OnlyFans content creators set their own prices and get to keep 80% of their commission. It’s been a source of income for many out of work people during the pandemic.
“On that Demon Time, she might start an OnlyFans,” the song goes.
But a man, who goes by King Willhelm—let’s just call him Willhelm—is snatching the agency the app gives people. Willhelm allegedly threatens to expose women to their loved ones if they don’t post a video of themselves begging for his mercy. In addition to the public humiliation, Willhelm allegedly asks the women to denounce sex work and take down their content.
He’s made what should be a safe space where sex workers are in control of a place of anxiety.
Willhelm manipulates women by acting like he’s contacting them to buy exclusive photos and videos. It’s really all a ploy to gather content he can show their families.
He gloats about his “work” on Twitter, often with the hashtag #Abolish SexWork. In one post, he uses #EndOnlyFans #BuyingNudes #MakeSexWorkIllegal.
One content creator—who wasn’t aware they were talking to Willhelm—knew he was going exploiting creators on the app and tried to get him to send a selfie to prove he wasn’t Willhelm. But Willhelm faked sympathy saying men who do that (aka people like him) are sick bastards and he “doesn’t understand why men can’t let sex workers be happy.”
“It’s YOUR body, you should be able to do whatever you want with it,” he continues, eventually convincing the woman to send the agreed upon pictures and videos.
“She’ll be crying & begging pretty soon,” Willhelm wrote along with screenshots of the conversation.
In a since-deleted tweet, he asks what seems to be a sex worker to join him as his “servant” to take down more accounts and start following his “written teachings.”
Willhelm claims he didn’t delete his tweets out of fear, but at the request of the FBI who he claims wanted him to “protect” himself.
While Willhelm has his share of supporters, most of his mentions are people blasting him for doxing sex workers and calling on others to block his account and get it taken down.
There’s also the added component of his self-proclaimed past as a pimp.
Sadly, this seems to be a common issue for sex workers just going about their lives, indicates @tonguedeity.
Willhelm did not respond to the Daily Dot’s request for comment. The Daily Dot has also reached out to OnlyFans.
