‘Need a psychological evaluation’: Twitter mob tries to cancel nude model Belle Delphine for kidnapping-themed photos

‘Need a psychological evaluation’: Twitter mob tries to cancel nude model Belle Delphine for kidnapping-themed photos

Social media users are trying to cancel 21-year-old nude model Belle Delphine for publishing an explicit kidnapping-themed photo shoot – accusing her of glorifying and promoting rape and pedophilia.

The controversy started after Delphine uploaded a preview [NSFW] of her “perfect first date” photo shoot to Twitter on Tuesday, which included photographs of Delphine – dressed in a Lolita style – tied up in the back of a car with tape over her mouth and engaging in sexual intercourse with a man in a balaclava against a tree.

The photo shoot proved popular, gaining over 57,000 likes, but also sparked a wave of backlash from critics who accused Delphine of “romanticizing rape.”

“belle delphine dressing as a child pretending to get kidnapped & r//ped and ppl simp over her ... u need a psychological evaluation,”commented one user, receiving over 80,000 likes.

“I’ve never had a problem with Belle but this is messed up and I really hope she (and everyone else) can see how this is harmful,”complained another with over 2,000 likes. “This isn’t hot or sexy. It’s traumatizing and a dangerous reality.”

Some Twitter critics even took aim at Delphine’s followers, with user @YaBoiToasty_ posting, “If you follow or support Belle Delphine. Unfollow me and never talk to me again. I get having a fetish or a kink. But this is f**ked. Dressing up as a kid and pretending to get raped on cam? How the f**k do you come up with this.”

Others complained about Delphine not posting a “trigger warning,” and claimed that the photo shoot would make her male followers “think this is normal.” The pile of reactions led to Delphine becoming one of Twitter’s trending topics on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Delphine also found some users willing to defend her, however. “Everyone’s freaking out in this but there’s a difference between two partners consenting in role-play vs actual assault,” a more sympathetic user pointed out.

Delphine – who moved on from more softcore photo shoots to full-blown pornography last month – is no stranger to controversy, having been in and out of the news over the past few years for engaging in stunts like selling her bath water.

In November, Delphine was even temporarily banned from YouTube before her account was restored following accusations of hypocrisy against YouTube – which had allowed allegedly more explicit videos from rapper Cardi B to remain on the platform.
