Lebanese-American porn star Mia Khalifa received some pretty nasty backlash after being ranked the number one actress on the adult website Pornhub. Many think she is a ‘disgrace’ to the Middle East and she has even received alarming death threats!

Mia Khalifa, 21, quickly gained popularity on the internet for her porn videos but not all feedback was positive. She has been receiving a lot of criticism regarding her Middle Eastern heritage and how “shameful” her porn career is. Find out what people are saying and how Mia is responding to the death threats.

Mia Khalifa: Porn Star Receiving Death Threats After Success On Pornhub

Mia moved from Beirut, Lebanon to the United State at the age of 10. She now lives in Miami, FL and is a recent college graduate. Her successful porn career has landed her on the top ranked list (#1) of the popular adult site Pornhub.

In one scene, Mia wore a hijab, a part of traditional female Muslim dress — that did not sit well with many. One Twitter user was so furious, they manipulated a photo to show Mia about to be beheaded by Jihadi John, the ISIS militant who is believed to be behind the beheadings of several journalists.

Mia’s Response To The Criticism

Mia has not been quite about the hate she has been receiving. She has been re-tweeting hateful messages with her own comments. In one tweet, Mia addressed the people who have an issue with her.

HollywoodLifers, what do you think about this whole situation? Do you think Mia has the right to do whatever she wants with her own life? Let us know what you think in the comments below!
