Florida Mom Banned from School Drop-Off Over 'OnlyFans' Decal Says She Was 'Prepared' for Backlash

"I'm not asking for everyone to agree with me," Michelle Cline said on the latest episode of the 'Amy & T.J.' podcast

  • Florida mom Michelle Cline, who was previously told that she could no longer drop her kids off at school due to her OnlyFans car decal, is speaking out

  • Cline told Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes on the latest episode of their podcast that she was prepared for the backlash

  • Cline also said she's mulling homeschooling her children in the wake of the controversy

The Florida mom whose OnlyFans car decal sparked ire at the private Christian school where her kids are enrolled is speaking out.

It's been about three weeks since officials at Liberty Christian Preparatory School in Taveras told Michelle Cline that she would no longer be able to drop her children off at its main entrance due to her “windshield”-sized decal for her OnlyFans page, according to the mom.

In the latest episode of Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes' podcast, Amy & T.J., Cline, whose alias is “Piper Fawn” on the subscription-based website, said that she'd been prepared for backlash for quite some time.

“I'll be honest, mine is definitely explicit,” Cline said. “I mean, when I first put it on [last year] and I drove in, I honestly was prepared for this kind of backlash back then. I was prepared for [people] right away to be like, ‘Whoa!’ What's going on?’ And then I probably would've just removed it because it would've been an immediate issue.”

However, nobody said anything until recently, when a fellow parent contacted her on social media and then school officials took action, Cline said.

“An angry mom sent me a Facebook message and at first she was just saying, ‘I saw this behind your car on Tuesday,” Cline said. “And she's like, 'I don't think it's appropriate for you to put this on there.’"

She went on to say that since it had been so long and there was "just one person" with an issue, she couldn't help but get a bit "defensive."

"I realize it's at school and I know there's kids, I recognize all of that," she added, going on to make it clear that while her account does contain "explicit material" everything is "blocked by a paywall."

Cline said she's been asked to either cover up the decal or drop off her kids from a location across the street from the school.

"I am requesting that you respect our request to keep the advertisement off campus," read an email from the school, according to Fox affiliate WOFL-TV. "If you'd like to bring your vehicles on campus, please cover up the decals. If you'd like to park off campus, you are welcome to do so."

Speaking on the podcast episode, Cline said she's deliberating pulling her children from the school altogether and homeschooling them "just to avoid the issues," she said.

A representative from Liberty Christian did not immediately return PEOPLE’s request for comment.

As for the takeaway that she hopes her children learn from all of this?

“My lesson for my kids is that when you're not breaking a law, you're not doing anything to harm someone else — and you're sure of that, we know that — then defend yourself," she said. "Stand up for what you feel is right. If you think what you're doing is right and okay, no matter what it may be, just because people don't like something doesn't make it wrong.”

"I'm not asking for everyone to agree with me," she added. "You don't have to love what I do. It's always something about someone else that we don't like what they do or whatever, but that doesn't mean we have to hate them."
