Nkechi Diallo, formerly known as Rachel Dolezal, has been dismissed from her position as an after-school instructor with the Catalina Foothills School District in Tucson, Arizona, due to her association with an OnlyFans account. The district's decision came after it was discovered that Diallo's social media activities on OnlyFans conflicted with its policies on employee social media use and staff ethics.

Julie Farbarik, the district's director of alumni & community relations, confirmed the termination, emphasizing the inconsistency of Diallo's posts with the district's standards. The discovery of Diallo's OnlyFans account, where she offered subscribers a more personal glimpse into her life for a fee, led to immediate action by the school district. Diallo, who had been employed since August 9, 2023, at a rate of $19 an hour, was working with students in the K-5 grade levels and also served as a substitute instructor.

Diallo, who gained national attention in 2015 for identifying as Black despite being born to White parents, has faced significant public scrutiny over her identity and actions. After stepping down from her role as president of the NAACP chapter in Spokane, Washington, amidst the controversy, she has struggled to secure stable employment. In recent years, Diallo has resorted to various means to support herself and her family, including braiding hair and painting.

Her legal name change to Nkechi Amare Diallo in 2016 was a move to reflect her self-identification, which has been a central element of her public and personal narrative. Despite the challenges, Diallo has remained active in advocating against race-based discrimination, participating in significant events such as the signing of an executive order by Arizona Governor Katie Hobbs to ban hair discrimination.

The Catalina Foothills School District has declined to comment further on the matter, and Diallo has not yet responded to requests for comment.
