Mia Khalifa Talks About Her Fears And What Made Her Quit The Porn Industry

0 487

Mia Khalifa has had a roller coaster of a life until now. From being one of the most popular adult stars, she shifted her focus to hosting a daily YouTube sports show.

However, her entry into porn industry was criticized in her home country, Lebanon, and even received death threats from terrorist group ISIS.

Meanwhile, Mia revealed that it was the day-to-day that was the hardest – not just because of the ISIS threats, but from ‘anyone that comes up’ to her, causing her to constantly look over her shoulder.

She was slammed for wearing an Islamic hijab while shooting for one of her adult scenes. She became so popular that in spite of being in the business for just three months she became the most searched-for performer.

However, Mia told that 60 percent of her interactions with people range from ‘rude to terrifying’. Although she suffers with the negativity, she says that she feels ‘uncomfortable’ talking about the ever-growing #MeToo campaign, a movement against sexual harassment and assault, which has received the backing of various celebrities.

She said: “I guess I do get harassed in person which is why I don’t really go out.

“I’ve grown a very thick skin so I feel uncomfortable speaking on the #MeToo movement because I don’t feel like I’m a part of it.

“Other people do and other people say that for me and I guess it’s subjective, I just try to laugh things off because it could always be much, much worse.”

When asked whether she is always looking over her shoulder, she continued: “More or less yes, especially since people would come up to me and not everybody was polite and asked kindly for a photo.

“My demographic is predominantly male, ages 18-24. You combine that with me going out with my friends to a bar. People are drinking.

“Interactions with people… I would say 60 percent range from rude to terrifying so I’m always looking over my shoulder.

“Not just for ISIS, just for everybody that comes up to me.”

She had also confessed that entering porn was a ‘huge mistake’ and the threats are what made her leave the industry.

In an interview with disgraced cyclist, Lance Armstrong, Mia said that she was even considering following in model Chrissy Teigen’s footsteps and pursuing a side-career as a cook and writer.

Mia will probably attract a lot of attention for the foreseeable but it’s impossible to condone the threats and abuse she is expected to endure.
