Former adult actress Mia Khalifa is gaining support in her effort to have old videos and images from her previous career removed from the internet.
The Lebanese-American reportedly spent less than a year making adult films and now tries to steer young women away from the industry, as well as discuss some of the sordid side-effects of the work.
Khalifa recently posted a video to Tik-Tok, which garnered over 4 million views, where she addressed the toll working in adult entertainment can on mental health. “The hourly dissociative attack from remembering hundreds of millions of people’s only impression of you is solely based on the lowest, most toxic, most uncharacteristic 3 months of your life when you were 21,” she wrote.
In a BBC interview this month, she opened up about what she described as post-traumatic stress from her brief career. “It kicks in mostly when I go out in public,” she said. “The stares I get, I feel like people can see through my clothes.”
Many of her followers on social media have come to her defense as well.
@elly_rain247 wrote, “Mia Khalifa was manipulated and forced into the porn industry and regrets every single video she made. she’s been talking about the sex abuse and trafficking in the industry for years. she only got paid 12k for those videos as well. we need to boycott the hub.”
Khalifa however doesn’t appear to have totally distanced herself from the idea of profiting from her partially-clothed appearance. Dozens of the images she posts to social media are in provocative poses while scantily-clad or in lingerie.
