Parents were outraged after an OnlyFans mural containing a QR code that allowed them to sign up directly to the adult social media site was painted on the side of a Brick Lane cash-and-carry.

The company’s owner says he was “misled” by the artists asking for permission to run the ad featuring IBF world bantamweight champion Ebanie Bridges alongside Towie star Chloe Sims and Blane Muise, better known as rapper Shygirl.

But locals in the heart of Banglatown, Brick Lane, erupted in anger with some claiming that teenagers on their way to school used the QR code to almost sign up for the 18+ site.

Graffiti artist Woskerski completed the painting on January 15, but it wasn’t long before locals threatened to throw paint over it.

Local residents, who complained en masse, believe it was finally painted over on Monday, just before King Charles III’s visit to Banglatown, so as not to embarrass the new monarch.

A local resident told the Standard: “It was originally brought to me by a mother who was passing by with her young teenage daughters who are in year 7.

“We think the removal has more to do with the king’s visit than local outrage.”

He added: “It’s bad enough that the youth end up being exposed to a bunch of crap, but now they’re targeting young impressionable girls and women as well.”

Juned Miah, manager of the family-run cash-and-carry, told the Standard that he quickly painted over the “offensive” mural with the more family-appropriate message ‘Welcome to Banglatown’.

He said: “Kids were walking past it, it didn’t look good.

“I had enough complaints, in all those three years we have never had so many.

“We have been misled by the OnlyFans people.

“We think someone changed the QR codes, so it went straight to signing up for OnlyFans. We thought it would be just the brand name.

“It didn’t fit the community, it didn’t look good. So now we’ve painted over Welcome To Banglatown.

“I had to cut my vacation to Bangladesh short and come back to sort it out. We tackled it as quickly as possible.”

IBF fighter and OnlyFans model Ebanie Bridges visited the mural and asked people to take pictures of it and tag her.

She told her followers: “Ngl it’s pretty cool that people all over England have done murals of me. Thank you to everyone who continues to support me. I am so honored to have this beautiful wall art in the country I now call home.”

A spokeswoman for Tower Hamlets council confirmed that the mural was on private property, so the council could not block the placement of the graffiti ad.

She added: “They had some complaints and it’s all gone now.”

A spokeswoman for OnlyFans said: “Although the mural is no longer available to the public, we are proud to feature the talented WOSKerski’s art in The Mural: UK on OFTV.”
