Social media personality, webcam model, and sports commentator Mia Khalifa has been recurrently criticised for working as an adult film star by various Pakistanis and Muslims around the world. She even received death threats from the Islamic state.
The Lebanese-American hailing from Beirut, quit the industry shortly after and relocated to Miami where she worked as a paralegal and bookkeeper. A petition demanding her videos be taken down after she admitted they will "haunt her until she dies," even circulated the internet earlier.
While she now runs a YouTube channel and live streams on Twitch, the 27-year-old has been blocked on TikTok for Pakistani viewers, following which, she shared her sentiments on Twitter. Khalifa has discovered an alternative for her Pakistani fans who would like to view her videos irrespective of the ban and "circumvent fascism."

In a follow-up tweet she added, "Shoutout to Pakistan for banning my tiktok account from the country. I’ll be re-posting all my tiktoks on Twitter from now on for my Pakistani fans who want to circumvent fascism."
