At least three teachers have lost their day jobs after using OnlyFans for a side hustle.
Two high school teachers from Missouri were placed on leave after word got out that they had personal OnlyFans accounts, Fox News Digital reported. The move received both praise and ridicule.
Megan Gaither and Brianna Coppage, both now-former teachers at St. Clair High School, apparently started “selling racy content to pay off student loans.” Gaither had $125,000 in student loans to pay off and turned to the digital prostitution site to supplement her income. Coppage, who makes only $42,000 annually as a teacher, is now “among the platform’s top creators, raking in nearly $1 million since she began the account over the summer,” Fox News Digital added.
These girls aren’t the only ones who turned to OnlyFans for extra cash. Samantha Peer, a former Arizona teacher, said, “I created content at the beginning of the summer in order to earn extra money on the side to help pay for our basic necessities that our salaries were no longer meeting,” adding she later felt pressured to resign after some of her students found her account.
Kristin MacDonald, a former special needs teacher in Canada, was fired after “refusing to take down her OnlyFans account,” according to Fox News Digital.
Teachers are supposed to carry themselves in a light that sets them apart and gives them the chance to be role models for their students. There’s a sort of set of unspoken - with some literally spoken - rules that I feel like teachers are held to. You know, like don’t wear belly shirts, don’t drink at school, don’t date your students, don’t talk about your sex life (though as of late woke teachers have gotten especially bad at limiting that). Being on OnlyFans is a violation of a school district’s code of conduct.
Nonetheless, while I get that teachers are teachers at school and regular people at home who deserve privacy, I feel like if someone is low enough as a person to sell their body for sexual purposes, they aren’t right in the head enough to spend eight hours a day imprinting on kids.
Even still, Rita Mkrychyan, a senior defense attorney at the Oak View Law Group in California told Fox News Digital that it was “disheartening” to hear about the “backlash” these teachers are receiving and blamed the education system for not paying them enough and forcing these teachers “into such positions.”
“In my opinion, it's not even debatable because we hold teachers to a higher standard because they're not only teaching academics, they're also teaching character and how to be a good citizen," Mkrychyan said. "I understand there's those codes of conduct, I don't oppose it, it's clearly a contractual violation, [but] I wouldn't say it's illegal."
Nikki Neily, founder and president of the parental rights group Parents Defending Education, was not in favor of the teachers' choice to join OnlyFans.
“Teachers are held to a higher standard for good reason: not only are they tasked with shaping the minds of young children, but they're also role models who parents assume will lead by example,” Neily wrote on X.
Another X user wrote, “even if they made $100k per year they would still be doing it. People with no sense of morality trying to rationalize their filthy wretched behavior. Disgusting and disgraceful!”
So what do you think? Do you think it’s appropriate for the people who teach your kids to take raunchy videos and pictures and sell them online? Or do you too, think they’re nuts!?
