    The porn career of Lebanese-American model Mia Khalifa was rather brief, lasting just a couple of months, but the experience has been haunting her for years, according to the actress. Recently, a petition has been created on Change.org platform demanding the removal of Khalifa’s porn videos that originally gave her such an infamous reputation.

    Mia Khalifa compiled a list of things she has done “against the odds” of her “porn stigma”, arguing that she did them for much longer period than her three months in the adult film  industry. According the Khalifa, her career path included hosting of sport shows, social media marketing, hosting a sports show, Twitch streaming, app development, YouTube and TikTok engagements, and various other positions.

    The list was shared as part of Khalifa’s efforts to fight the “porn star” title often attached to her name by the media. However, many still reacted to the model’s tweet with objections, saying that she would probably not have landed some of these jobs or amassed an extensive social media following if it hadn't been for her brief stint in the porn industry.

    Others still rushed to support the actress, claiming that she had indeed done much more in her life. However, some suggested that she should change her name if she truly hoped to finally escape her past.

    In late June, a petition was created on Change.org asking adult film industry platforms and corporations such as PornHub, BangBros and others to remove videos and images featuring Khalifa. The petition insisted that Khalifa’s “infamous hijab video” made the actress a target of threats from a terrorist organisation and prompted her to seek therapy as the result of it. However, it says that despite the demands of Khalifa and her team and financial offers, the platforms were unwilling to delete the pornographic clips and return the woman’s domain names “due to financial advantage”.
