Teacher 'fired over her OnlyFans account' starts GoFundMe to fight dismissal and raises £16
| Last updated
A teacher who claims she was fired after starting an OnlyFans page has launched a fundraiser to appeal against her dismissal, but so far it's not going brilliantly.
Many people hold down multiple jobs, but some work better together than others. 'Teacher' and 'OnlyFans model' are not two jobs that scream peaceful co-existence, but it seems a number of teachers have not let that get in their way.
Among them is former teacher Sarah Juree, who says she lost her job after her workplace found that she had started a side hustle selling racy snaps of herself on OnlyFans.
Despite having a steady job as a science teacher Sarah found it increasingly difficult to make ends meet, and turned to the site as a means of making extra money.
Unfortunately, despite her claiming her boss had advised her to start an OnlyFans, she subsequently lost her full-time job. She is now appealing the decision and has started a fundraiser with the aim of raising $10,000 / £8,000.
However, things don't seem to be going quite as swimmingly as Sarah may have hoped, as at the time of writing she has only raised $20.
A caption on the page said: "Hi! I am Sarah Juree! A single mom to twins. I was unfairly fired from my teaching job for starting an Onlyfans Account after my boss encouraged me to do so. I am raising money to help support myself and my twins as I navigate this difficult time."
Sarah previously told the Daily Star: "Almost every teacher in America has a second side job or more. My former coworker worked as a bartender and she mentioned starting an Onlyfans page.
"My boss told us both to start a page and sell our panties on it days before I got fired."
Since turning to OnlyFans, Sarah has spoken about how it helped her to break out of a 'poverty cycle'.
Speaking on Alex Burket’s Rise To The Challenge podcast, she said: “I had a job where I was using my intelligence, but I was living in a poverty cycle. However, as a woman I can take my clothes off and make five to eight times what I was making as a teacher simply because I have a body…”
Sarah now hopes to fight her former employer for severance, claiming that her dismissal was 'unfair'.
