Former porn star Mia Khalifa sparked outrage after emphatically expressing support for Hamas following its surprise attack on Israel — even urging members of the terrorist group to “flip their phones and film” their incursion on Israel “horizontal.”
The adult entertainer-turned-OnlyFans star, who has long called Israel an apartheid state, drew ire after posting a series of controversial tweets since Saturday’s surprise attack, which has claimed the lives of at least 800 Israelis.
“If you can look at the situation in Palestine and not be on the side of Palestinians, then you are on the wrong side of apartheid, and history will show that in Time,” Khalifa wrote on X on Saturday.
In a separate post on X, Khalifa called a photo of Hamas terrorists a “Renaissance painting.”
She drew additional criticism after writing, “Can someone please tell the freedom fighters in Palestine to flip their phones and film horizontal.”
She also criticized Kylie Jenner for posting a since-deleted message in support of Israel to her Instagram account, writing, “If true journalism exists, the next person to talk to Kylie Jenner will ask for her opinion on geopolitical tensions in the Middle East and not break eye contact until she can string one coherent sentence together since she wants to take a stance to her 400M followers so badly.”
Since Saturday, Khalifa has reposted numerous posts to her 5 million followers X in defense of the war.
One statement, reposted to her account from influencer Kelbin, noted that the attacks are “what oppressed fighting the oppressor looks like.”
Khalifa, who was banned from her home country of Lebanon, had a meteoric — but not exactly profitable — time in the adult industry in 2014.
