OnlyFans model fuming after gym cancels her membership over changing room photo
| Last updated
An OnlyFans model has slammed the 'disgusting' actions of her former gym after her membership was axed over a changing room photo.
Stephanie Harrison signed up to CrossFit Death or Glory in Newcastle earlier this month, having been a member of a number of CrossFit gyms since 2019.
On 21 February, the 31-year-old decided to take a post-workout selfie at the sports club in which she's wearing a sports bra and leggings.
She then shared the photo on her work's backup and personal Instagram account, which has a link to her OnlyFans and AdmireMe.VIP profiles, adding the hashtag #crossfit.
Despite being an innocuous post with no mention of the specific gym she was at, WhatsApp messages appear to show that Stephanie was told to drop her £79 per month membership immediately.
In the first message, the accused owner writes: "Afternoon Stephanie, it has been brought to our attention that you are running an OnlyFans page and that pictures on the page have been taken in the gym.
"What you do in your own time is completely up to you, however we as a business want absolutely no link to something like this.
"We therefore respectfully request for you to leave the gym with immediate effect.
"We will cancel your membership and refund you the week that remains on the month you have paid for.
"We hope you understand and wish you luck in the future."
When Stephanie asked to see proof in the exchange, she was sent a screenshot of the photo from her backup Instagram account.
She denied the accusation that the image was on her OnlyFans, arguing that she only posted it on her Instagram and didn't tag the gym.
But the owner came back to say that her OnlyFans is linked to the account.
A later message from the manager reads: "It isn’t a personal attack on you or your profession, it’s a decision we are making based on not wanting people seeing those images and linking the gym or us to it.
"Regardless of whether you agree with it or not, we reserve the right to decide who trains here and to protect our reputation."
Stephanie expressed her shock over the treatment, accusing the sports club of discrimination towards her line of work.
The mum-of-two said: "I’m honestly stunned and absolutely disgusted. This is utter discrimination.
"I'm sorry I'm not a doctor or a lawyer and they don't think my money's clean enough for them."
She continued: "CrossFit gyms are supposed to be a community - my job shouldn't be questioned.
"There wasn't even any link to the gym at all in that picture, and I don’t mention them in my stories.
"You can't tell from the picture where it was taken. I used the CrossFit hashtag, but that isn't naming the gym.
"This was totally unexpected. It's not like it was nude - I was in a sports bra. There's nothing in the gym to say, 'No photography'. I'm being victimised.
"I deal with a lot of hate in my work. The stigma is still there, and for a reputable gym to do this is not on at all.
“You also do not cancel someone's membership by WhatsApp."
