It was all good just a week ago for Mia Khalifa. Rewind to December 28th when PornHub.com released one of their hypebeast press releases and stated that Mia Khalifa (21 years old, 34DDD-26-40, 5’2″”) is the #1 ranked pornstar on their site.

Mia Khalifa grew up in Maryland but is of Lebanese descent. She now lives in Miami due to her contract with Miami-based Bang Bros. And in another strange twist, Mia is actually the biggest FSU fan of life (she must be upset that Jamies Winston is leaving we bet).

Now comes the scary stuff. Due to her Lebanese heritage, Ms. Khalifa has gained quite the popularity in her native country in recent weeks since the PornHub.com honor was announced. So much so that it has also brought a windstorm of death threats and trolls. Here’s a excerpt from The Washington Post:

In an interview with The Post, Khalifa said she had not expected any reaction to PornHub’s announcement from Lebanon, where she has not lived since she was 10 years old and last visited five years ago. A relatively new adult performer who wasn’t sure if she’d stay in the industry long term, she hadn’t expected much attention at all. “I really didn’t expect it to go past maybe having my own Web site and maybe a contract extension,” she said.

The torrent of online messages were hard to ignore, however, and Khalifa soon began to respond. “Doesn’t the Middle East have more important things to worry about besides me?” she tweeted on Saturday. “How about finding a president?” she said, referring to Lebanon’s ongoing struggle to find a new president. “Or containing ISIS?” she added, using an acronym to refer to the Islamic State. When one user said she would soon be beheaded, she replied that was okay as long as they didn’t target her “expensive” breasts.

Another factor was Khalifa’s tattoos, one of which shows the logo for the Lebanese Forces, a political party that operated as a right wing Christian militia during the country’s long civil war. Another which contains the first line of the Lebanese national anthem (“كلنـا للوطـن للعـلى للعـلم” or “All of us! For our Country, for our Glory and Flag!”).

Many of Khalifa’s critics argued that these tattoos added a political edge to her work. In response, Khalifa tweeted that she was entitled to an opinion on Lebanese politics as she was born and raised there. She told The Post that the response was made out of “annoyance” and that her opinions about politics were inherited from her family. She got her tattoos to “show solidarity with my father’s political views after a bombing in Lebanon in 2012,” she said. Khalifa said her family does not support her work (“they are less than pleased to say the least”) and that they have not discussed the backlash.

Despite the negative comments, Khalifa also received a large amount of support from Lebanese society. She said she received “touching messages” from Gino Raidy, a Beirut-based blogger, and British-Lebanese author Nasri Atallah was one of a number of people who defended Khalifa on Facebook.. “She is a 21-year old in Florida who has made a decision for herself, with absolutely no wider implications,” Atallah wrote.

Khalifa isn’t anywhere near as contrite. “What I once boasted to people as being the most Westernized-nation in the Middle East, I now see as devastatingly archaic and oppressed,” she said. And while she says she “hates” the word feminist, she can’t help but wonder what her situation says about women in Lebanon. “Women’s rights in Lebanon are a long way from being taken seriously,” she said, “if a Lebanese-American porn star that no longer resides there can cause such an uproar.”

Damn. At least it seems like she has a strong head on her shoulders.
