Kaylen Ward, 20, ignited the craze on Jan. 3 with a tweet saying she would send a nude photo to anyone who provided proof that they donated to one of a list of organizations working in Australia.
That tweet blew up; just a few days later, Ward estimated that more than $1 million in donations had been generated.
Since the money is going directly to charities, Ward herself isn’t getting a cut, although her social media following has grown exponentially since the campaign started. Her Instagram, however, was shut down in the process.
A Facebook spokesperson told BuzzFeed News her account “was disabled for violating our policies. Offering nude images is not allowed on Instagram.”

Jamie Bisceglia took the fateful picture on August 2nd at a Tacoma Narrows fishing derby. Some fishermen she met up with had hooked the octopus, and she decided to take a picture with it attached to her face for the derby’s photo contest. “It was a photo contest in the derby,” she told the news station. “So, crazy me, hindsight now and looking back, I probably made a big mistake.”
Once the octopus had latched onto her face with its tentacles, it bit her in the cheek twice, injecting venom that left Bisceglia in “incredible pain.” Her face swelled up and, after 2 days of holding out in the hopes that the pain or swelling might fade, she finally went to the ER.
In her screenshots of their alleged conversation, she claimed that he asked her for nude photos in exchange for a free photo session. However, when she declined and said that she was only “comfortable shooting lingerie and partial nudity,” he allegedly responded with: “It’s 2k then.”
“Yeah you wack,” she said, according to her screenshot of their private messages. “Find someone else,” he said. “I’ll keep shooting celebs.”
