A Lebanese-American ex-porn star says ISIS threatened to behead her in gruesome mocked-up execution images.

Mia Khalifa – an ex top-ranked artist on the adult website PornHub – said the bloodthirsty terrorist group delivered her the gruesome pictures via social media. 

Threatened by ISIS, Khalifa says in a recent radio interview with The Sports Junkies that she won’t give the extremists what they want:

‘You can’t show weakness. That’s exactly what they’re looking for. I really try and just make it look like it rolls off, but I’ll admit, it will get to you after a while.’

Mia Khalifa, a 21-year-old former porn star who is Lebanese-American, says ISIS threatened to behead her in mocked-up execution photos they sent through social media

Khalifa relocated from Beirut, Lebanon, towards the US at age 10 prior to moving to Miami, exactly where she’s presently based.

The 21-year-old graduate of history brief stint inside the porn industry drew critique from various people, including all those in the Middle East who branded her a ‘disgrace’ to the region.

The selling of erotic materials is usually banned in nearly every Muslim country other than Lebanon and Turkey.

She has since re-tweeted the misuse sparked by those who have difficulties with her Mid Eastern origins.
Many took offence with a scene in one of her videos displaying her having sex wearingr a hijab, part of classic female Muslim dress, describing it as ‘problematic and gross’.

A Twitter user threatened her head ‘will be cut-off soon’, whilst another warned her she’d be ‘the first person in Hellfire’.

This ISIS vs Mia Khalifa

Many, including ISIS, got a problem with a scene from of Khalifa’s videos displaying having sex while sporting a hijab, part of a classic female Muslim dress

ISIS has taken issue with a scene, similar to the one pictured, from one of her videos showing her having sex while wearing a hijab, part of traditional female Muslim dress 

 

Khalifa – who comes from a Christian family – told The Washington Post in 2015 that she was surprised this scene in particular caused anger and was meant to be satirical.

‘There are Hollywood movies that depict Muslims in a much worse manner than any scene Bang Bros [the company who made the video] could produce.’ 

In addition, she also came under fire for her tattoo designs relating to Lebanon, including the starting line from the Lebanese national anthem and another from the Lebanese Forces Cross, which can be meant toshow solidarity with my father’s political views after a bombing in Lebanon in 2012′. 

Critics accused Khalifa of shaming Lebanon by appearing in adult videos with these types of tattoos on her her body.

‘They’re embarrassed I’m ‘claiming’ them – as if I had a choice. I was born there,’

she told Newsweek in 2015. 

She admitted to the publication that her father and mother at a time stopped talking to her because of her career choice.

‘I’ve dragged their name through the mud,” lamented Khalifa.’I feel guilty for dragging them into this and having all their friends know now that it’s on Lebanese media. But that was never my intention.’

Khalifa now makes her living covering sports activities and pop culture through her personal channel around the live-streaming service Twitch
