Porn Star Mia Khalifa Threatened by ISIS

0

  • Former adult film star Mia Khalifa revealed that she quit after receiving death threats from ISIS. Appearing on Lance Armstrong’s podcast, Khalifa talked about her hockey fandom, why she moved on from Miami to Austin, and what precipitated her move out of porn.

    Even though Khalifa was born to a Christian family, she’s Lebanese-American which gave her the right look to play Muslim characters in adult films.

    So, only three months after being approached at Whataburger about porn and saying: “Hmm. Okay. I’ll try out this adult film thing,” she’s getting messages on social media on ISIS threatening to behead her. They even mocked up photos of her execution and sent them to her.

    Come to think of it, how did all this get to ISIS so quickly? Isn’t porn the bathwater of the great Satan? What I’m saying is — which member of ISIS was willing to admit he was scoping out Pornhub to his buddies?

    She says that by this time she decided porn wasn’t what she wanted to do. I mean, anyone would have been shocked by such a quick rise to fame. She shot her first movie in October 2014 and by December she was already the #1 ranked performer on Pornhub.

    And, Armstrong talked about that on the podcast, how this thing she did for three months has inevitably come to define her. Mia’s gone a long way in trying to redefine herself, however. She briefly co-hosted the daily YouTube show “Out of Bounds” on Complex’s channel and she’s also got her own channel on Twitch.

    But, some of those hurt feelings about her porn career might be hard to get rid of. And it isn’t just ISIS. People from her home country of Lebanon were upset, not just at the hijab video, but also because of her tattoo of a phrase from the Lebanese national anthem.

    According to Newsweek, Lebanese newspapers were criticizing Khalifa for “shaming her country” with the tattoo.

    For the most part, Mia Khalifa has always brushed off the criticism. In 2015, when the controversy first started, she tweeted: “Doesn’t the Middle East have more important things to worry about besides me? How about finding a president? Or containing ISIS?”
