Online trolls have renewed the THOT Patrol spirit over the Thanksgiving Weekend by reporting Internet THOTs to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to pay their share of taxes.
For the uninitiated, THOT is internet slang for That Hoe Over There – basic girls who know very little aside from flaunting their God-given bodily parts and skills. THOTs have been present on the internet since streaming services like Twitch became a thing in 2011 and have provided adult entertainment – ranging from the suggestive to the explicit – on multiple social media platforms.
The internet phenomenon has been trending as #ThotAudit. Reports say that incels, men’s rights activists, and online trolls are reporting internet camgirls (a.k.a. THOTs) to the IRS for Tax Evasion and Tax Fraud. A Facebook profile going by the name David Wu became the central figure in the new THOT Patrol efforts to report Camgirls with Premium Snapchats and other accounts that offer their body parts as rewards for monetary “donations”.
#ThotAudit has taken Twitter by storm with the exchanges being picked up by Facebook users and eventually mainstream media outlets. The complaints, mainly coming from internet THOTs, were highlighted as misogyny.
Short answer: Yes. All income is taxable under the United States Law unless classified as one of the categories exempt like a religion. So, Internet CamGirls need to pay their share of taxes.
At the end of the day, even if it’s really incels and misogynists reporting the THOTs, it doesn’t justify the Tax Evasion and Tax Fraud. Sex work should take on being taxed considering that it’s the same women who campaign that sex work is real work.
