Teacher-Turned-OnlyFans Model Praised By Teachers After Becoming Millionaire

Courtney Tillia is getting a ton of support and inspiring other teachers … after throwing in the towel as an educator and becoming a millionaire as an OnlyFans model.

Courtney tells TMZ … she’s received an outpouring of supportive messages from teachers after TMZ revealed she racked up over $1M through her OnlyFans accounts in just over 3 years.

Something everyone knows … teachers are grossly underpaid, so she’s clearly getting the attention of her former colleagues, many of whom are struggling financially. She’s gotten DMs from folks who say they’re considering quitting teaching — not necessarily a good thing for society, but it’s a reality until teachers are paid more.

Courtney’s husband is not only supportive of her move to OnlyFans … he’s the one who started taking pics to post and he’s still in the mix. Oh, yeah, he also likes the money!!!

She says she really misses her students, but doesn’t miss the job at all. She says she felt underpaid, unappreciated and strangled by school district control. She’s now the master of her own destiny.

Video Of TikToker Joel Hansen (Modelvsfood) Gagging In Asian Grocery Store, Saying It Has A ‘Pet Store’ Draws Backlash

A Canadian social media influencer faced fierce backlash over a racist video in which he joked that an Asian market has a “pet store” in the back.

The influencer ultimately apologized for his ignorance—but viewers aren’t buying it.

“Under his apology video, there are people saying ‘we’ forgive u. Bro, who’s we?!” one TikTok user commented.

Joel Hansen, known as @modelvsfood across TikTokInstagram, and Facebook, set himself up for failure in May—Asian American-Pacific Islander Heritage Month—when he mocked the Asian store and its items in the TikTok video. The 3-minute video, which has been deleted, was captured by TikToker Michael or @chachamyeonmikal.

In the clip, which has a text banner reading “This food should be illegal,” Hansen can be seen standing outside the Asian supermarket T&T.

“If you have never been in an Asian grocery store, you’re about to be shocked!” he says.

The video then shows Hansen inside the store, where he smells durian—a fruit popular in Southeast Asia—and makes a disgusted face. Next, he questions a plucked chicken and why it was being sold with its feet still intact.

“They even have a pet store back here where you can grab whatever animals you want!” Hansen exclaims while holding a crab with tongs at the seafood counter.

At this point, Michael interrupts the video repost to make a statement about Hansen’s racist comments.

“I had to stop right at that comment about there being a pet store at the back of an Asian grocery store,” Michael says. “Like, you have to know how bad that sounds and how bad that looks.”

Then, Michael transitions back to Hansen’s TikTok footage, which includes visible hashtags like “food challenge,” “eww,” “gross,” “gross food,” “gross food challenge,” and “California food.”

“I know he leads a flavourless life,” someone commented under Michael’s repost of the video.

“Bro shocked by fresh seafood lmao,” another viewer posted.

In another video reposted by Michael, Hansen is still at the grocery store making jokes about the customers.

“We have customers in training,” Hansen says as an Asian child walks by with a kiddie cart.

“Omg,” a TikTok viewer commented under the video. “I used to watch him all the time on YouTube, but I literally stopped because any time he eats somewhere that has non American food—”

“The way he treats Asian people as props in his video to poke and make fun at,” another user said.

After the relentless criticism, Hansen issued a 6-minute apology on TikTok on May 20, titled “Sorry” with a frowning emoticon. The video is captioned, “No excuses. I am sorry. I cannot change the past, but I can change the future. I will do better. Thank you.”

“I’ll start by saying I truly regret what was released, how it was released, and I really do take responsibility, and I really apologize,” Hansen says. “The video has been removed, and I’m here again to verbalize and to ensure that nothing like this happens again. The video was absolutely clickbait-y, marketed, edited, and created for shock value. With my layers of privilege, I did not identify really with how this video was.”

Hansen implies that he was unaware of how the video was being edited and marketed, but that he still takes responsibility for its production. Then, Hansen tries to downplay his reactions to the supermarket.

“I never spoke the words ‘weird,’ ‘gross.’ I just kind of wanted to show items that you normally can’t acquire in a North American grocery store,” he says in the apology video. (For the record: T&T is the largest Asian grocery store chain in Canada with nearly 30 locations.)

Ogilvy Will Refuse To Work With Creators Who Airbrush Faces And Bodies In Photos

Ogilvy UK, one of the world’s leading advertising agencies, has announced it will no longer be partnering with influencers who retouch their faces or bodies in brand campaigns, as part of an initiative to combat the ills of social media.

Rahul Titus, Ogilvy’s Head of Influence, told The Drum that consumers look to content creators as the “authentic side” of marketing, but with how distorted their images have become, it’s now “harmful” to those who frequent social networking platforms.

In addition, Titus hopes the company’s brand-new commitment to not working with influencers who alter their pictures will aid in the UK government passing the Digitally Altered Body Image Bill, which would require brand spokespersons to disclose edited content to consumers. 

As Dr Luke Evans, the Member of Parliament who introduced the bill, put it: “These edited images do not represent reality, and are helping to perpetuate a warped sense of how we appear, with real consequences for people suffering with body confidence issues.” 

Over the next two months, the agency plans to roll out its changes in separate phases: first, by consulting brands and influencers on the new policy, then by implementing the ban. It has said all edited sponsored or paid-for content influencer posts will cease by December this year. 

If you’re wondering if influencers will still be allowed to edit their pictures at all, the answer is yes. Ogilvy will still permit work with adjusted contrast or brightness. It draws the line at retouches made to a subject’s skin or body. 

In order to ensure influencers are compliant, the firm will make use of ‘InfluenceO’, an emerging technology stack that detects when pictures have been retouched or distorted. 

Overall, Titus said he hopes the agency will be a leader in the industry and will spur a change in influencer marketing all over the globe.

Just maybe, after years of editing and retouching, we’re moving towards embracing our real selves.

IG Model Tyger Booty Found Dead In Hotel After Flying To Ghana To See African Billionaire

Atlanta Instagram Model Tyger Booty has reportedly met her untimely death in a hotel room in Ghana, Accra, while with a politically connected African billionaire on a paid vacation. Nothing has been said about Tyger Booty’s sudden death by Ghanaian authorities.

Some people believe since this yet-to-be-named Ghanaian billionaire is connected to the ruling government, they are working smart to shield him and let him get away without his reputation being soiled.

Tyger’s last social media photos were from Ghana earlier this month, so we can confirm she was in the country. When she died, is anyone’s guess because the last photo was from December 7th and reports of her death started to come through after Christmas. The truly sad thing is Tyger is a mother and leaves a little girl behind.

It wasn’t unusual for her to go on these paid trips to Dubai, Ghana, and other international places to meet up with wealthy men. We know what happens during these rendezvous, but something went horribly wrong this time, and we may never have the answers to what happened.
