Belle Delphine Fans Are Furious After Cosplayer Trolls Them With Unsexy Pornhub Videos

Instagram star Belle Delphine faced a vociferous backlash from a slew of her 3.5 million followers after she promised to create a Pornhub account on Sunday if her photo reached 1 million likes.

The picture garnered nearly 2 million likes by Friday and Delphine didn't exactly follow through on her promise. Though Delphine, 19, uploaded 12 videos with provocative titles and cover images to the adult site, the videos weren't what some fans had hoped. It consisted of decidedly non-explicit content.

Some aggrieved netizens encouraged others to unfollow her en masse to torpedo her career—a fit punishment for being misled by the cosplay star. The angry, vengeful and explicit reactions seemingly point to the sense of entitlement that some fans have with their favorite influencers, and the ways in which online communities can sometimes foster misogyny and toxic masculinity.

One of the videos, called "PEWDIEPIE goes all the way INSIDE Belle Delphine," is a minute-long clip of Delphine eating a picture of YouTuber PewDiePie and winking throughout.

The comments under her recent photos range in nature from angry to humorous. One Instagram user told Delphine "you've got a bounty" and "all the gamers are coming to find you."

I'm sad that I won't be able to cover Belle Delphine's massive Pornhub troll tomorrow. The reactions are...something.

YouTube commentator Philip DeFranco expressed regret that he wouldn't be able to cover Delphine's content on Friday, as he noted: "The reactions are... something."

I bet he tasted so good.

Delphine responded to DeFranco and to a number of comments on the Instagram post that sparked the controversy and seems to be taking the complaints in stride.

Pornhub commented on its official Instagram and Twitter accounts. When Delphine made her promise to open an account, the company wrote in a comment that it was "the best news." Later, it joked about how good PewDiePie must've tasted.

Newsweek could reach neither Delphine nor Pornhub for immediate comment.
