Gabi DeMartino responds to OnlyFans video backlash.
OnlyFans is a subscription-based platform in which users pay for content. The social media app is widely known for creators sharing sexually explicit pictures and risqué content of themselves.
While it has become a popular platform used by sex workers to post pornographic pictures, celebrities and influencers have also created OnlyFans accounts to post more personal and behind-the-scenes content.
After Gabi shared the controversial clip, fans immediately commented on the video's underage explicit content.
"Um @gabcake you better make a statement ASAP about this onlyfans s--t ...you better not be trolling with kid pics and thinking that’s OKAY," one person tweeted.
Another person wrote, "I have absolutely NO words right now. Gabi Demartino really uploaded a video of herself as a child lifting up her dress to her Only Fans account. @OnlyFans this content is disturbing, inappropriate and illegal. Please do something."
This individual commented, "I like Gabi demartino but posting a video of you on OnlyFans of when you were a child & flashed the camera and titling it with a suggestive caption + charging access to the vid for an extra $3 is disgusting."
Following the backlash, Gabi took to Twitter to share a statement with her large fanbase who she refers to as "fancy babies."
"A childhood video of me on the phone saying 'Nani says put your panties back on' and jumping up and down laughing. I'm sorry I didn't think that one through. Period. A home-video I love to share w my friends & I use my [Only Fans] as a "finsta" page where I share stuff as I would [with] friends," she tweeted.
She continued, "The video was a goofy throwback family moment that I wanted to share with my personal Onlyfans fancy babies. I am sorry that this wasn’t thought out completely I apologize. The video is down now I am sorry again if this came out wrong."
Gabi's twin sister Niki DeMartino also shared a statement on social media with her followers regarding the sensitive situation. "I am horrified by what's happened, and I understand why so many people are hurt and angry. I am hurting too," she posted on Instagram. "I love you all so much and I hope you understand why we won't be posting on the "Niki and Gabi" YouTube channel together while our family deals with this crisis. Love you guys."
According to Insider, OnlyFans seemingly deactivated Gabi's account writing in a statement: "The account in question is deactivated for violation of OnlyFans' Terms of Service."
Gabi DeMartino addressed the controversial OnlyFans clip again in a new YouTube video in which she apologizes to everyone that was "triggered" or hurt by the post.
"Recently my lack of judgment and poor decisions have led to a very, very serious issue that needs to be addressed. I owe it to you guys," the influencer stated on her channel. Gabi explained to her followers that she never thought the childhood clip "could be looked at in such an ugly way," adding, that she's "dis-attached with reality" and taking this time to "reflect."
