A racy content creator has refused to apologise after fans accused her of “promoting rape”.
Belle Delphine, 21, know as the “gamer girl”, has garnered a huge following after posting raunchy snaps and videos online.
However, she was recently criticised for a set of kidnap role-play Twitter posts where she captioned the four photos: “My perfect first date
The photos – most of which are too explicit to publish – showed the content creator dressed in a light blue, floral dress with tape over her mouth and her hands tied up behind her back, The Sun reports.
She was not wearing underwear.
Rope was tied around the woman’s ankles, wrists and arms while she engaged in a sex act against a tree with a masked man dressed in black.
The 21-year-old – a YouTuber and cosplayer – began trending on Twitter as fans accused her of “promoting rape”.
One social media user wrote: “Something about Belle Delphine dressing up as a small child and wearing baby clothes and playing with kids toys while also participating and promoting hardcore kinks such as kidnap and rape links just knocks me f***ing sick.
“Sorry but this sh*t should NOT be normalised.”
Another added: “How is Belle Delphine not permabanned? She literally posted a pretend child rape photo shoot and all her stans are hyping it up and praising it.
“Twitter safety sucks, someone promoting child rape should be a more suspensible offence than spamming edits.”
‘I’M NOT SORRY’
But the YouTuber refused to apologise, posting yet another snap with the caption: “I’m not sorry, here’s why.”
She accompanied the snap with a screenshot of a lengthy explanation.
It read: “There is nothing wrong with enjoying powerplay and BDSM where both people are consensual.
“I think saying because I enjoy consensual non-consent is promoting rape, is the same as the argument that violence in video games promotes violence.”
Belle also expressed how she thought it was “insane” that critics said she dressed as a child and insisted she never said the word rape.
“I felt like dressing vintage that day and even styled my hair in a beehive that was very common for women of that time,” she said.
“All the clothes I wear are made for adults, so the only thing that people can comment on maybe is the fact I’m wearing a cute dress?
“It’s very confusing for me since I see other people dress like it all the time; if it’s about how I genetically look I can’t change that and I will not apologise for it either.
“Nor will I stop being sexual since I am a sexually active adult.”
Delphine made her name on Instagram where she had 3.8 million followers before she was booted off the platform in 2019 for violating its community guidelines.
She continues to post lewd interpretations of anime and video game characters on her other social media channels.
In 2019, she infamously sold vials of her own bath water.
She allegedly sold 500 jars on her online store, charging “thirsty gamers boys”, as she put it, $40-a-pop.
As well as selling bath water, she makes money selling posters of some of those poses through her online store – as well as a mousemat featuring an anime-style drawing of herself.
Delphine also has over 700 “patrons” on crowd-funding site Patreon.
There some users can simply offer support for under $2-a-month – but for about $7-a-month users can pay for “cute and sometimes weird selfies”, as well as behind-the-scenes access to photo shoots.
Those willing to shell out a bit more get “access to lewd HD photosets” or access to her “personal” Snapchat, described as her “naughtiest” social media account.
The most expensive option is around $3500-a-month, for which the rewards are not specified.
Delphine also has an account on OnlyFans, a pay-monthly service popular among amateur porn stars and sex workers.
In December, she told YouTube star Logan Paul that she makes $1 million every month on the site.
“I think, we’re all, the main people on OnlyFans, roughly about the same,” she said, speaking on Paul’s Impaulsive podcast.
“And at the moment it’s like $1 mil a month.”
Delphine has been contacted for comment by The Sun Online.
