    The campaign called on Pornhub and BangBros websites to take down adult films featuring the Lebanese-American socialite, who, since the making of the videos in 2014, has regretted starring in them.

    The now 27-year-old Mia Khalifa took to Twitter to say she invited everyone who signed the petition to her birthday party.

    Mia Khalifa made eleven adult films, which are popular on websites like Pornhub and BangBros, but which are a source of concern for the ex-porn star herself. She has been campaigning to remove the videos that she made at the age of 21. One of the clips shows Khalifa wearing a hijab.

    "The infamous hijab video has collected ISIS [Daesh*] death threats that have targeted Mia from the video’s release in 2014 to today. Mia attends therapy on a consistent basis for trauma, emotional distress, and consequences of bullying,” the petition that has now acquired more the half a million supporters said.

    Khalifa has a million-follower audience on social media. Her supporters and those who see nothing wrong with Pornhub keeping her videos up clashed in arguments online.

    The petition argues that Khalifa was “only paid $12k from the millions of dollars that Pornhub and BangBros make off her videos”

    In response to the ex-porn star’s statements, BangBros sent her a cease and desist notice outlining her ‘defamatory’ claims. 

    The current target number of the petition is three million signatures.

    *Daesh, also known as ISIS/IS/Islamic State, is a terrorist group banned in Russia and many other countries.
