“We get asked that question a lot, and we thought now was a good time to answer it once and for all,” Holly began.
“No judgment on anyone who has OnlyFans, but I think there was a small trend of people coming off reality shows and using that level of exposure to then sell nudes online.”
Jimmy added that his problem with the increasing number of reality stars joining OnlyFans is that they claim they’re doing so for the “empowerment of women and men.”
“I think you should be a role model for the future generation,” said the healthy couple
“I personally think that’s a lot of crap,” he joked. “I think you should set an example for future generations.
“If you want to celebrate male or female empowerment, start a charity, donate to breast cancer awareness or prostate cancer awareness,” he continued.
“I think it’s a way to get money, and [you should] Think of the example you set for future generations, for your children when they are at school.’
Holly then offered her thoughts on the controversial topic.
The couple’s comment drew the ire of Bachelor rejectionist Abbie Chatfield (pictured), who lashed out at the couple in a lengthy Instagram rant on Wednesday
“Our view: Normalizing the sale of nude photos online does not equate to empowering men and women,” she wrote. “If that’s your view, fine. It’s just not going to be something we’re going to do. Thank you for coming to our TED Talk.”

“The tone of voice with no judgement, but here’s our judgement, isn’t ideal but no one’s really asked you what the morality is in terms of fans only or sex work,” Abbie chided the duo.
“The tone of voice without judgement, but here’s our judgement, isn’t ideal, but no one has actually asked you what you think about the morality of fans-only or sex work,” Abbie said
She continued: “You just asked if you would and to be honest I don’t think anyone really cared. I just felt like a vessel to speak out about your firing of people just making fans.
Abbie went on to say she’s not sure how using their “fame” to make money on Instagram or social media is any different from her or Jimmy and Holly.
“It’s the same thing that we market content, but obviously sex workers are very different in the way they’re marginalized… and treated.”
