Mia Khalifa – a former adult film star – has been criticized on social media after reposting her old video in which she stated that being in the army is worse than OnlyFans.
According to the media reports, the former adult film actress made the comparison in July 2022 during an appearance on the late-night talk show Ziwe in the United States. During the interview, she said while responding to a question from the host, “So we have OnlyFans, and then we have the sex work industry, and then we have like actors. Is there a difference between these industries or are we all fundamentally selling our bodies in some way? Honestly, I think that selling your body, like if we are going by that definition, being in the army is worse than being on OnlyFans. You’re selling your body to the government.”
Recently, Mia Khalifa shared the video again on the social networking website X (formerly known as Twitter) on November 11, also observed as Veterans Day in the US. The video shows the former adult star voicing the controversial statement. She shared the clip in response to a post from comedian Marcella Arguello, who wrote, “Who else remembers being against the Iraq war and people being like oh wow so you don’t SUPPORT OUR TROOPS?!?! And then having the dumbest conversation about being anti-American when you were just anti-killing innocent people. Anyway, this feels like that.”
The post of Mia amassed a million views and over seven thousand likes. But most of the users have criticized her for the bizarre comparison. A person commented, “Says the woman who is allowed to expose herself for cash based on the freedoms provided by our service members. You’ve never sacrificed a thing for anyone other than yourself. You are a sad excuse for a person.”
