‘The Bernie Mac Show’ Actress Camille Winbush Reacts To Criticism Of Her OnlyFans Page: Bernie Is NOT Turning Over In His Grave, Stop Saying That
Actress Camille Winbush is reacting to criticism of her decision to start an OnlyFans account.
Camille Winbush, 30, who starred in The Bernie Mac Show from 2001-2006, announced her new channel on Instagram earlier this week. She wrote,
“Yes, you heard that right. I have joined OF!But I’m doing it my way*- I’ll be saying the things I really want to say, singin’ & dancing, and sharing exclusive content. But don’t think it’s just for the men. I’m finally dropping the skin care routine, I’ll be doing regular live sessions with Q&A’s, special guests, and most importantly- I’ll be able to talk to and connect with you one on one. I want to hear from you so come thru! -CandidlyCam (Link in bio)”
While the site is known for risqué content, she made it clear she wouldn’t be taking part in that way. She wrote,
“*My way = minimal nudity. So if that’s what you’re expecting sorry not sorry to disappoint”

Despite her clarification, she received tons of backlash, including critics saying Bernie Mac, who passed away in 2008, would be disappointed. She responded and wrote,
“I made the mistake of reading comments about my ‘fan’ announcement. Overall, the majority were supportive and I appreciate that. I really do. But I’m human and of course the ones that stick out to me were the negatives. So let me be clear – I am not broke or desperate for money. Bernie, God rest his soul, is not turning over in his grave. STOP saying that. Even if meant as a joke, it is far from funny.”
“I do not need to call Tyler Perry for a job. I’m not spending thousands of dollars on school to get a degree so that I can get a ‘real job’, whatever that means. I will not now, or ever be doing p–n. YouTube does not equal an automatic payday. Working in Hollywood has never been my endgame. Hell, to not have to work at all is my goal.”
She explained that she didn’t join the platform for money.
“I made an OF because I wanted to, not out of necessity. I used to make life choices based on what people would think of me. And I’m aware I still look young. But I will literally be 31 years old in seven days and I have to start living for me. If you don’t like my choices… [shrug Emoji] Thanks for coming to my TedTalk. Good night.”
