Adult star and influencer Mia Khalifa was fired “immediately” from Playboy after voicing her comments on the Israel Palestine conflict – and she’s been absent from social media ever since.
The Lebanese-American adult star wrote several tweets on the conflict – some of which are no longer available. But according to reports she joked about the “Zionist apartheid regime being brought down by guerrilla fighters in fake Gucci shirts”.
She added that the terrorists in the truck remind her of a “Renaissance painting”. In another, the 30-year-old posted to her five million followers: “Can someone please tell the freedom fighters in Palestine to flip their phones and film horizontal”.

Despite Mia later tweeting “I just want to make it clear that this statement in no way shape or form is enticing spread of violence, I specifically said freedom fighters because that's what the Palestinian citizens are… fighting for freedom every day”, she was let go from Playboy.
In an email sent to users, Playboy wrote: “We are writing today to let you know of our decision to terminate Playboy's relationship with Mia Khalifa, including deleting Mia's Playboy channel on our creator platform.
“Mia has made disgusting and reprehensible comments celebrating Hamas' attacks on Israel and the murder of innocent men, women, and children. At Playboy, we encourage free expression and constructive political debate, but we have a zero-tolerance policy for hate speech.

“We expect Mia to understand that her words and actions have consequences”. They ended the email by sharing the letter they sent to the adult star.
The adult star's page has been removed from the Playboy site and she can no longer create content for their CENTERFOLD platform. CENTREFOLD allows models to sell content to and interact directly with fans – Mia joined the platform in February 2022.
Playboy CEO Ben Kohn previously said: “Mia's fearless, direct, thought-provoking and fun-loving approach to life and her career make her an important addition to our Centerfold community. Freedom of expression is the cornerstone of our Playboy legacy, and Centerfold is all about empowering creators like Mia to express themselves in a safe, accepting environment.”

William Maher is an American comedian, writer, producer, political commentator also slammed Mia for “rejoiced in the killing,” and wanting to “see the carnage”. During his show he added the ex Pornhub star managed to prove “that you literally can have your brains f****d out" and stated "where is Donald Trump when you need someone to pay a porn star to shut the f**K up?”
Mia was also let go “effective immediately” from Red Light Holland for her “disgusting tweets celebrating rape, kidnapping, abuse and murder by Hamas Terrorists in Israel”. CEO Todd Shapiro fired her in a tweet, after only signing her in April 2023.

Responding to a now-removed tweet, Mr Shapiro said: “This is such a horrendous tweet @miakhalifa. Consider yourself fired effective immediately. Simply disgusting. Beyond disgusting. Please evolve and become a better human being. The fact you are condoning death, rape, beatings and hostage-taking is truly gross.
“No words can explain your ignorance. We need humans to come together, especially in the face of tragedy. I pray for you to become a better person. However, it clearly seems like it’s too late for you.”
On October 8, Mia responded to the tweet by saying: “I just wanna make sure there’s 4k footage of my people breaking down the walls of the open-air prison they’ve been forced out of their homes and into so we have good options for the history books that write about how they freed themselves from apartheid. Please worry about your sad little company lacking direction and purpose before you utter my name again.

“I stand with all people fighting oppression, now and always, do your research before begging for my investment in your little project, I’m from LEBANON, are you insane for expecting me to be on the side of colonialism you f*****g weirdo”.
In a series of follow-up tweets, she added: “That’s the most press you’ll ever get out of me for your s****y little company you quite literally couldn’t pay me to post about it publicly before because I thought it was so bad."
She added: “I’d say supporting Palestine has lost me business opportunities, but I’m more angry at myself for not checking whether or not I was entering into business with Zionists. My bad.”
The usually very active influencer has not posted on her Instagram or her Twitter, now X, since October 9.
