'Bernie Mac Show' Actress Camille Winbush Sends Critics on Job Hunt Following ‘OnlyFans’ Backlash

The former actress joined the controversial online subscription service in 2021.

Camille Winbush, known for her role on the Bernie Mac Show, is standing firm in her decision to join the subscription service OnlyFans.

In a post on X (formerly Twitter) shared on Thursday, June 13, the 34-year-old actress addressed the backlash, writing, “I’m fine guys, don’t worry. I don’t expect anyone to understand nor support my life choices. But to attack me and my family is unnecessary and unacceptable, and I’m going to call it out when I see it.” 

Instead, she encouraged her critic to “Put that energy into finding me the 9-5 job y’all want me to have so bad.”

This post follows her recent interview with Comedy Hype News, published on June 7. In it, she discussed the social media criticism she faced after her 2021 OnlyFans announcement.

“People that are outside of the acting world have no place to speak on it,” the California native told the outlet. 

“When people are saying, ‘Oh, those Bernie Mac checks must have dried up.’ I’m like, ‘From a job 20 years ago when I was a 12-year-old? Yeah.’ Like, duh.”

Winbush explained that while she still receives residual checks, they decrease every year. “You’re not making the same amount that you were when the show was current, per episode,” she continued. “Twenty years later, those checks are not sustainable for a living.”

She added, “If I can find a way to make enough to buy a home from the comfort and safety of my own living room, why wouldn’t I do that?”

Last year, Winbush also defended her "Bernie Mac Show" co-star, Dee Dee Davis, who faced similar negative comments for having an OnlyFans account.

“The trolls are hungry again so here’s some food for thought—I’ve never been arrested, never been on drugs, don’t have any baby daddies, I pay all my taxes, I drink water, and mind the business that pays me,” Winbush tweeted at the time.
