Ansel Elgort’s Viral Nude Photo Helps Raise a Million Dollars for COVID-19 Relief

Ansel Elgort just thought of the best way to raise money for novel coronavirus (COVID-19) relief efforts. While others are doing so through live performances and virtual concerts, Ansel decided to do something different that will surely capture the attention of fans online.

On Instagram, the actor posted a revealing photo of himself standing in the shower with only his hand covering his private parts.

He captioned the photo as “not safe for work” and directed his followers to an OnlyFans link, which is a platform for people to post their risque photos that people can pay for to see. However, upon clicking the link, followers are instead directed to a GoFundMe page for “Brooklyn For Life!” which is raising funds to support local restaurants and deliver meals to frontline health workers in Brooklyn.

Unfortunately, Instagram had to take down Ansel’s revealing pic but he was able to successfully help raise over USD 200K to the cause.

“It seems like a lot of people have been giving in the last few hours. So thanks a lot, looks like it was worth it,” Elgort said in an Instagram story. “Unfortunately, Instagram told me I had to take my post down because it’s a [nude].”

“Sorry if I offended anybody, but we did a good thing,” he added.
