OnlyFans suspended lifestyle YouTuber Gabi DeMartino's account after sharing a video of herself as a toddler, lifting her skirt and exposing herself on camera.
The 25-year-old YouTube star sparkled outrage for selling the childhood video for $3 on her OnlyFans page. And people accused her of duping her fans and unintentionally setting them up to possess child pornography, a Class D felony.
DeMartino promoted the clip with the caption, 'won't put my panties on.'
Following concerns from fans, OnlyFans rep. confirmed that her account violated company policy, and they have suspended it.
DeMartino also tweeted that she had taken down the video.
"The video was a goofy throwback family moment that I wanted to share with my personal OnlyFans fancy babies."
"I am sorry that [I didn't think this through] completely. I apologize. The video is down now. I am sorry again if this came out wrong."
According to those who saw the clip, it shows a young DeMartino in a dress.
Her dad, filming, at one point asks what DeMartino's grandma was saying, to which the YouTuber responds, 'she says put your panties on.'
Her father then jokes about the fact that his daughter doesn't have underwear on. Afterward, they all laugh and scream when she fully flashes.
People estimate DeMartino was about 3 to 6 years old at the time.
The influencer has more than 3 million YouTube subscribers and 4.4 million followers on Instagram.
In an apology video on YouTube, DeMartino chalked up the OnlyFans video to a 'lack of judgment and poor decisions.' She also noted that the caption was a quote from the video.
"Never in a million years did I think something that I thought was so innocent could be looked at in such an ugly way. I think that's where the problem lies."
"I realized I am so dis-attached with the reality that it didn't even cross my mind that [people] could [view it] like this."
At the end of the video, she began to tear up, while promising fans:
"I'm going to grow and learn from this, and I will come out of this a better person, and I will do better."
However, many people didn't take her apology well.
One user said:
"I'm sorry, but I don't accept this."
"'Won't put my panties on' while advertising your only fans was not a goofy throwback family moment."
"The fact that you thought this was alright to post the moment makes me want to throw up."
Others also argued that influencers like DeMartino are taking advantage of a platform where professional sex workers make their living.
Apparently, this isn't the first time DeMartino has sparked controversy online.
Back in September, she took her TikTok account down for a while after posting a controversial 'BFF Income Challenge.'
In the post, DeMartino compared her spending with a non-influencer friend, showing a spending disparity of thousands of dollars per week.
At the time, fans accused her of flaunting her income.
