OnlyFans creators call for boycott after owner supports Israel lobby

The situation in Gaza

Sex workers and other OnlyFans creators are not happy with owner Leonid Radvinsky's support of the Israel lobby.

Following the Hamas attack on Israel on October 7, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) has stepped up its fundraising efforts in support of the Tel Aviv regime.

OnlyFans’ Jewish owner Leonid Radvinsky and his wife have pledged a large donation to the lobby group, which is not appreciated by sex workers and other creators on the notorious platform.

In the wake of the war in Gaza, the lobby group AIPAC has launched a campaign to raise $100 million to fight “pro-Palestinian candidates” in the US. The goal is to oppose and defeat candidates who are not perceived as sufficiently pro-Israel for the 2024 US elections.

During AIPAC’s annual policy conference last week, the American Prospect reported that the pro-Israel group provides its supporters with dubious arguments to try to influence lawmakers, including outright false claims that people are not starving in Gaza and that Israel is not blocking aid shipments.

This has prompted creators and sex workers on OnlyFans to call for a boycott. One of those involved, BodyXBlunts, says that “as an activist, as a sex worker, we want decriminalization because we want safety. They [Palestinians] want safety and freedom. If we can’t understand that, who can? To be in solidarity with them is easy”.

Owner Radvinsky heavily criticized

Molly Simmons, a leading figure in the boycott, says hundreds of creators have joined the call and she is now urging others to migrate to alternative platforms.

– Whether it’s their genius marketing or divine intervention, [OnlyFans] has become the household name, even though OnlyFans as a platform — Zionism aside — sucks, she says. It’s the worst one. It’s terrible.

OnlyFans has long been heavily criticized for the way it treats its creators. But the owner’s alleged donations to AIPAC have only made things worse, causing more people to abandon the platform. Radvinsky has yet to comment on the allegations.

Detailed instructions on how to leave OnlyFans and support creators on other platforms are now being circulated on social media. In summary, creators are calling for a boycott of OnlyFans for three main reasons: to support Palestinians, to protest the way the platform is run, and to express dissatisfaction with the owner’s political support for Israel.


An online platform where users, known as creators, can share various types of content, including images, videos and live streaming, often of a sexual nature, for a subscription fee set by the creator. Founded in 2016 by Tim Stokely, OnlyFans has quickly become a popular platform for creators in the entertainment industry, including models, artists, and sex workers.

The platform offers creators the opportunity to earn money by offering "exclusive" content to their subscribers for a monthly fee. The owners then take a cut of the creators' revenue.

OnlyFans has come under heavy criticism, mainly because the platform is often used by people who publish pornographic content - but also because of concerns about user privacy and security.

The platform has long been owned by Ukrainian Jewish businessman and pornographer Leonid Radvinsky, who moved to the U.S. with his family when Radvinsky was a minor.
