Earlier this week, the Reddit thread r/WallStreetBets encouraged people to pile into GameStop’s stocks in an effort to stun Wall Street firms who were betting those stocks would fall. As a result, financial apps began supporting hedge funds and banning individuals from buying those stocks to keep them from losing more money.

Now, the internet is comparing the ongoing situation to when Bella Thorne joined OnlyFans.

Last year, Bella Thorne decided to join the subscription-based platform OnlyFans. Soon after, she faced backlash from sex workers who claimed her presence on the platform caused policies to change that negatively impacted their ability to make money. For the most part, many argue that because of her fame, she is taking customers and prospective subscribers away from individuals who truly need the money.

Now, this situation is being compared to Reddit's GameStop stocks ploy. One tweet has gone viral after arguing that financial apps such as Robinhood and hedge funds blocking the purchasing of GameStop's stocks is similar to Bella Thorne joining OnlyFans.
