Rachel Dolezal, the former activist and academic who was exposed as a White woman after pretending to be Black for several years, has lost her teaching job over an OnlyFans account that was linked to her.

According to KVOA, Dolezal, who now goes by the name Nkechi Diallo, was working as an after-school instructor for the Catalina Foothills School District in Tucson, Arizona. The school district, however, fired her after learning about the OnlyFans account, explaining on Wednesday that her posts violate its “Use of Social Media by District Employees” policy.

Launched in 2016, OnlyFans is an online subscription service known for mostly hosting pornographic content that is created by sex workers. Dolezal is said to have linked an OnlyFans account to her public social media page. It was also reported that she seemingly runs that OnlyFans account and photos deemed to be sexual from that page have since been uploaded on different platforms including Reddit.

It has, however, not been established if the images in question were posted by Dolezal or another person. “We only learned of Ms. Nkechi Diallo’s Only Fans social media posts yesterday afternoon,” the district’s director of alumni & community relations, Julie Farbarik, said on Wednesday.

“Her posts are contrary to our district’s ‘Use of Social Media by District Employees’ policy (attached) and our staff ethics policy. She is no longer employed by the Catalina Foothills School District.”

Dolezal was once a highly-regarded activist and academic. Prior to being exposed for pretending to be a Black woman, Dolezal served as president of the Spokane, Washington, chapter of the NAACP and was also an adjunct instructor of Africana Studies at Eastern Washington University. She resigned from her NAACP position and was also relieved of her duties at the university after the exposé.

Despite being born to White parents, Dolezal has previously said that she identifies as Black.
