Billy Santoro, a gay porn star based in Australia, has disappeared from adult sites and social media after he called for police to shoot Black protesters.

As Black communities rise up against centuries of police brutality, state-sponsored murder and systemic racism, many white allies in the queer community and beyond have showed support by marching, donating and posting on social media.

Billy Santoro, however, decided to use his Twitter platform to call on police to shoot Black people.

“Lol. America! Lol you let your blacks loot as a way of protest,” he wrote in a since-deleted tweet.

“Wake the f**k up. Shoot first.”

The adult star deleted his entire Twitter account following a backlash, but screenshots shared widely on social media show that he has a history of using violent words against the Black community.

A screen grab appears to show Santoro claiming “Blacks will just breed more hatred towards them” by damaging business property during protests.

Another reads: “You are a fool if you think Black trans women aren’t being murdered by their community, you are truly blind.”

At least 26 trans people were killed in the US in 2019, the overwhelming majority of which were Black trans women killed by cis people. At least 12 trans people have been killed in the US this year, including Nina Pop, a Black trans woman, and Tony McDade, a Black trans man killed by police.

Billy Santoro cancelled by JustForFans.

JustForFans – an adult site similar to OnlyFans – was quick to condemn Santoro and removed him from the platform.

“His account is gone,” it tweeted Tuesday (June 2).

“Policing is a slippery slope and we won’t be puppets to cancel culture. This was not debatable though. It was vile. BLM [Black Lives Matter].”

Hours earlier, the site had added Black Lives Matter to its charitable giving programme, writing: “JustForFans stands fully behind Black Lives Matter, our models of colour, and our entire user base, in wishing this cycle of violence against people of colour would end.”

Santoro’s OnlyFans page has also been taken down. According to The Sword, before its removal it included video descriptions fetishising Black men as well as references to “miss Tina”.

It isn’t clear whether OnlyFans or Santoro is responsible for the page’s removal. PinkNews has contacted OnlyFans for clarification.

Before his Twitter account was deleted, Santoro reportedly offered a pitiful explanation for his post.

He claimed a friend had been killed during looting in Philadelphia.

“I lashed out full of emotional stress,” he wrote, according to widely-shared screengrabs. “Those who know me know I am not racist. I am hurt by the loss of my friend.”

Santoro’s husband, Gage Santoro, has also disappeared from social media.

Before his page went dark, he shared pictures of Billy Santoro in a hospital exam room.

He alleged that Santoro had attempted suicide over the backlash, however followers quickly pointed out several inconsistencies in the image, and accused it of being a “fake”.

PinkNews has contacted Santoro for comment.
