EMT creates GoFundMe for support after publication reveals her OnlyFans account

Lauren Kwei is the New-York-based paramedic who was publicly identified by the New York Post in an article about her OnlyFans account. She has started a GoFundMe account to help support her “during her legal battles against the newspaper”. 23-year-old Kwei later wrote on GoFundMe that she had begged Post reporter Dean Balsamini not to reveal her identity. “He did not include in his article that I started crying on the phone when he finally did tell me what he was inquiring about”. The Twitter backlash to the Post story was swift, with even Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tweeting to condemn the outlet. “Leave her alone,” the 31-year-old New York representative wrote. “The actual scandalous headline here is ‘Medics in the United States need two jobs to survive’”. Kwei’s GoFundMe page has raised over $102,000 — much more than its initial $5,000 goal — and the number continues to grow. She intends to use the “platform” she has been given to fight for a more fair wage for EMTs fighting on the frontline of the pandemic
