Danielle Bregoli, the teen rapper known now as Bhad Bhabie and formerly as the “Cash Me Outside” girl, officially shattered an OnlyFans record on April 1 when she racked up more than $1 million in just six hours following her debut.

She shared a photo to her Instagram account that appeared to show her total earnings from the not-safe-for-work site at just over $1 million, including $757,526.08 from subscriptions, $267,675 from DM payments and $5,502.35 in tips. A representative from OnlyFans confirmed her record-smashing $1 million+ earnings to Page Six.

 “Not bad for 6 hours,” she wrote. “We broke the f*** out of that onlyfans record.”

The previous holder of that record was former Disney star Bella Thorne, who earned more than $1 million in her first 24 hours on OnlyFans in August 2020. She was met with swift backlash from sex workers who rely on OnlyFans as their main source of income (Thorne’s success led the site to reduce the maximum limit creators could charge for exclusive content.)

Thorne has since apologized to the community but remains on the platform alongside other celebrities like Cardi B, Jordyn Woods, Tana Mongeau and now Bregoli.

Bregoli turned 18 on March 26 — just one week before launching her account. Her 18th birthday Instagram post was flooded with comments asking when she’d join OnlyFans. Her rush to get on the platform and the comments encouraging her to do so have been a major source of backlash. 

“Saw your 6 million comments and now i’m answering your call … we breaking all the rules ” she wrote in an Instagram caption, suggesting that there were millions of comments from interested parties.

“The amount of dudes that absolutely RAN to bhad bhabie the immediate second she turned 18…” one Twitter user said.

“People were dead*** saying ‘i’ve been waiting for this’ when bhad bhabie launched her onlyfans and if that doesn’t scream predatory i don’t know what to tell you,” another wrote

“Y’all wasted money to see a girl that just turned 18?” a user commented on Instagram.

Comments calling Bregoli’s massive earnings “sad” and criticizing people who were “down bad” enough to subscribe to her page have flooded her Instagram to the point that she turned off comments on her latest post.

She doesn’t seem to be bothered by the backlash, though. She tweeted April 3 that she’s “having fun” with her account.
