Mia Khalifa was body-shamed on Twitter.  Just recently, one Twitter user shared snaps of the ex-porn star in her workout attire.

In the photos, Khalifa is seen wearing a black cropped tank top that exposed her abs. She paired it with red cycling. Khalifa is also visibly working out in the photos.

“I can't believe we all thought Mia Khalifa was sexy,” the netizen wrote as caption to the photos.

Some users then commented that they also did not find Khalifa sexy in the first place.

“Never thought this chick was sexy lol the most overrated pornstar in history,” one agreed.

“She look like a mature 12 year old with abs,” another added.

“Her abs and being anorexic is not a good combo lol,” @SeaSidewind1 opined.

“Yeah she doesn’t look good,” another agreed when one netizen said Khalifa looked “unhealthily thin.”

Meanwhile, several also defended Khalifa from those attacking her due to her appearance in the pictures.

“Stop body shaming,” @namscrystal commented.

“Let this girl live her life omg ,she literally did nothing to you,” @ozzieMotau added.

“She looks better than half y'all who used to watch her videos,” @lifeisgenjutsu wrote.

“I don’t get it. Her body and face is both so beautiful???” @KabilaThiagaraj opined.

In a previous interview with the BBC, Khalifa admitted how she struggled with her weight and felt the need for validation before she joined the porn industry.

“I struggled my entire childhood with weight and I never felt attractive or worthy of male attention, and suddenly in my first year of college, I start losing all this weight from making small changes and by the time I graduated, I was ready to make a bigger difference,” Khalifa explained.

“I felt extremely self conscious about my breast because that was the first thing to go when I lost weight. I lost about 50 pounds and once I did that, I started garnering all this attention from men and I was never used to it, and I felt like unless I held on to it, and did what was asked of me to do or what was expected of me, it would go away and after feeling and what was like that validation, and you know, the compliments for the first time, I did not want that to go away.”

In related news, Khalifa has joined TikTok and she said she loves it. She also engages with other TikTokers who leave comments on her videos. 

Khalifa was part of the adult entertainment industry for a brief period of three months with 11 porn videos. However, she has moved on since then.
