You’ve already noticed “Belle Delphine” trending if you’ve visited Twitter dot com. And if you know who that is, you probably know why: a series of disturbing photographs detailing her “perfect first date” were shared by the pornographic influencer/manic pixie nightmare gamer girl/bathtub water retailer and many feel like they are crossing a huge line. Keep scrolling if you need some catching up.
What Did The Controversial Belle Delphine Do?
Belle Delphine posted pictures of her “perfect date” on January 12, showing her role as a young girl being kidnapped, tied up, and sexually assaulted. Although it was consensual, many thought that she triggered users and created an awkward (and potentially harmful) atmosphere because she posted it directly to Twitter without some form of alert (such as blurred images). What’s worse is that “Belle Delphine” is trending, and without any warning, people could accidentally click on her name.
“Hey everyone pls don’t look at the belle delphine tag she did a photoshoot where she is kidnapped and assaulted dressed as a child. Sorry for no tws but i don’t want people who have this muted to not be warned,” one person tweeted.

If you’re familiar with Belle’s, uh, profession, then you know it’s not the first time she’s been part of controversy.
In General, Why Is Belle Delphine Controversial?
For a while, for different reasons, Belle Delphine (real name: Mary-Belle Kirschner) has been on the “controversial people” list, but the overwhelming opinion is that she makes a living off taking things too far. She sold bottles of her own bathwater for $30, for example, and the internet was both repulsed and fascinated as well. She even vandalized a car before she took a social media break and said she was arrested, but nobody knows if this is true.
She supposedly vandalized the car because her hamster had been stolen by someone. “stg this girl came to my party and stole my hamster. I have no idea why, or who tf does that? I spray painted the f–k out of her car and got arrested, at least I got my hamster back. b*tch,” she tweeted. She shows a painting of Pepe the Frog in one of the pictures, a meme stolen by white supremacists, and the “okay” symbol, which is also a gesture of the hand used by white supremacists.
Belle was kicked off of Instagram for lewd content in 2019. Eventually, she returned, and she now has over 60,000 followers. In November 2020, the same thing happened on her YouTube page. After the NSFW video was captured by the YouTube police, her channel was taken down, but according to Belle, she did not get any kind of warning.
“I’m fine with YouTube removing that video though, it was super NSFW, but to remove my whole channel with no warning is extreme. I wasn’t even going to post s–t like that anymore to YouTube, so that’s a bummer. Not even allowed to make a new YouTube account, I already tried,” she said.
