Abbie Chatfield Criticises The Bachelor’s Jimmy and Holly For Their Take on OnlyFans
Ooooh boy, things aren’t looking too good for winning Bachelor couple, Holly Kingston and Jimmy Nicholson. On Tuesday night, in a decision I’m still scratching my head over, the pair shared exactly what they think of reality TV stars turning to OnlyFans to make money.
Both of them stated that they had no intentions of joining and selling “nudes online” on the adult-only website, with Jimmy saying he would rather see TV personalities focussing on charity endeavours and using their platform to set an example for younger Australians.
As expected by everyone other than Jimmy and Holly, their comments sparked backlash and now, outspoken queen Abbie Chatfield has weighed in on the matter.
Abbie took to her Instagram story to label the message as “sex work shaming”, “very problematic” and “misogynistic” and revealed that she private messaged Holly shortly after the comments were made.
“I messaged her explaining what was wrong with it in the hopes that a private message from me, someone who has hung out with them before, would then cause them to sit and think about what they posted and maybe post an apology,” Abbie said.
She then posted a screenshot of the message she sent, where she called the couple’s opinion “the opposite of progressive” and insisted that they stop “shaming marginalised communities”.
The next day, Jimmy and Holly decided to stand by their comments which left Abbie “extremely uncomfortable” and “disappointed” and is the reason she decided to comment publicly.
“No one actually asked you guys what you thought the morality around OnlyFans or sex work was, they just asked if you would do it,” Abbie pointed out.
“To be honest I don’t think anyone really cared that much. This felt like a vessel to speak about your dismissal of people who do OnlyFans.”
She emphasised her point further by explaining how those on OnlyFans or engage in sex work are often marginalised and that the couple’s comments could cause more negativity and strife.
Abbie then touched on Jimmy’s comments in which he said reality TV stars should be “good role models” and start charities rather than selling explicit photos.
“You can be a sex worker and be a role model, and you can be a non-sex worker and be a complete f—king piece of liberal f—king voting piece of s—t,” she said angrily.
If you thought it couldn’t get any worse then you couldn’t be more off the mark. Hours after Abbie uploaded her Instagram stories, she then returned to reveal that Jimmy had called her and “basically said that I should’ve given him and Holly a heads up”.
She told him that she had messaged Holly on Tuesday night, but Jimmy reportedly accused her of “being very aggressive.”
“There was a long seven-minute conversation had… let me just say the tone of voice was what I imagine a dad getting you in trouble was like,” she alleged.
“He seems to stick by his opinion… but you have to understand the repercussions of that.”
