Source - The actor, best known for starring in Baby Driver and The Fault in Our Stars, pulled off a spectacular flex on Instagram on Tuesday by posting a nude photo.
With almost everything on display, he teased: “OnlyFans LINK IN BIO.” However, while many, many thousands of people who broke the sound barrier with a rush towards the actor’s Insta bio, the link was not to the promised nude-sharing app, but to a fundraiser providing free meals to Brooklyn hospital staff.
Although the photo has now been removed – from his Instagram at least, let’s not pretend we didn’t all save a copy – the stunt seems to have paid off, with donation on the page rising by $19,000 overnight after the actor’s post – from $193,000 to $211,000.
I don't know why but I'm suddenly craving a cigarette. Weird. I don't even smoke. Anyway, $211,000 overnight just by posting a teaser to a nude ain't too shabby. Here's a link to the original photo which has since been deleted. Don't act like you didn't zoom in.
After it came down he went on IG to explain himself:
He said: “I just wanted to say, thanks a lot! Everybody’s raised a lot of money. I don’t know how much of this is from the post, but it seems like a lot of people have been giving in the past few hours. Looks like it was worth it.
“Unfortunately, Instagram told me I’ve got to take my post down because of nudity, so I’m going to take it down. Maybe I’ll repost a version that cuts a little higher. “Sorry about that, Instagram, sorry if I offended anybody, but we did a good thing.”
Revealing a baffling snippet about the photo, he added: “My dad took the picture, by the way, he was mad and said I needed to give him credit.”
What a good guy. A little strange that he had his DAD take the photo, but that's neither here nor there. Anything for charity!
Now that the money's raised he should post an actual link to an OnlyFans. That's an easy quarter of a million dollars in extra income per month. Not that he needs it. Oh well. Good on you, Ansel.
While I have you here, let's do a quick check on Gay Twitter to see how they're handling things...
Seems about right. On to the next one…
