A teacher struggling to make ends meet is fighting to win her job back after she was fired for making OnlyFans content, according to Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.
Kristin MacDonald, 35, was let go after eight years as a teaching assistant in Canada when she received a letter from board officials issuing her termination.
“Your misconduct in this matter is egregious,” the termination letter obtained by the outlet read, including multiple reasons as to why MacDonald would be fired.
MacDonald, who said she earned $1,000 CAD every two weeks, turned to OnlyFans to help support her family and young daughter.
“It’s so far-fetched to me. It seems very petty,” the ex-teacher let out in frustration to CBC.
“I feel strongly that in this day and age, we should be able to do what we want as long as it’s not illegal,” she added. “I’m not hurting anybody.”
The model posted exclusive content on her OnlyFans account, and a heap of racy, bikini photos on her Instagram under the pseudonym “Miss Ava James.”
MacDonald, who worked with special needs students, received an initial letter from the school district on April 28, when she was informed she needed to remove all accounts she promoted explicit content on or choose to be let go.
“You’re directed to immediately cease all activity and to remove all online social media accounts including but not limited to Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, and OnlyFans,” read the warning email from Terry Fox Secondary School.
“Failure to do so may result in disciplinary action up to and including termination.”
MacDonald claimed the school used taxpayer money to peak into her OnlyFans content to investigate and, ultimately, make the decision to fire her.
Though, the 35-year-old isn’t backing down and has since been in contact with a union to help get her job back.
“The union does not believe that Kristin’s off-duty conduct violated any company policies or collective agreement provisions,” union representative Randy Kootte said according to The Sun.
“There’s been a lot of mixed emotions about it,” MacDonald said. “Certainly, disappointment and everything. But I’m also optimistic that the process is not over yet.”
A former Indiana teacher was fired after a colleague reported her skimpy bikini photos on OnlyFans to the school board.
Sarah Juree, 41, was let go from her teaching job after it was revealed she was sharing sultry selfies on OnlyFans outside of school hours.
One year after her firing, Juree said she viewed the bitter situation as a “blessing in disguise,” claiming she made more money in her first month on OnlyFans than she did during an entire year of teaching.
