Porn Star Mia Khalifa Compared Herself to Virgin Mary — Say What Now?

In today’s edition of controversial news, 24-year-old porn star Mia Khalifa recently put up an image of her face photoshopped onto the body of Mother Mary and uploaded it onto her Instagram – further offending a bunch of Catholics out there who told her to “go to hell.” Albeit tacky, we gotta applaud Khalifa for her unusual humour and lack of fucks when it comes to her social media content.

When a news outlet mistakes Malala for Mia Khalifa

But aside from its perceived religious insensitivity, Khalifa was actually making a joke about being mistaken for Pakistani activist Malala Yousafzai, who was spotted rocking skinny jeans, ankle boots, and a bomber jacket during her first week of university at Oxford. Khalifa captioned the mentioned photo on Instagram with: “When a news outlet mistakes Malala for Mia Khalifa.”

Unfortunately, many didn’t get the joke and criticised Khalifa for her lack of respect towards the religious icon. A netizen even commented a strangely ironic comment that warranted a few laughs here from us. “After this act, I will never look at your videos anymore,” said the user. Another user even commented: “‘She’s a porn star, as if she has morals to begin with?”

The outspoken Khalifa was once the most popular adult actress on Pornhub; she’s also very vocal on her social media platforms including Twitter. Her joke might have gone a little too far for staunch Catholics, but what’s new? Mia Khalifa will always be, well, Mia Khalifa.
