Former adult film star Mia Khalifa sparked outrage with her comments on X, on the ongoing Israel-Gaza conflict. On Saturday, October 7, Khalifa tweeted, “Can someone please tell the freedom fighters in Palestine to flip their phones and film horizontal.”

People on social media were outraged by Khalifa’s tweet so much so that she was sacked from a business partnership with Todd Shapiro, a Canadian broadcaster and radio personality.

Shapiro, who was about to finalize a contract with Mia Khalifa, announced her sudden cancellation of their agreement.

Mr. Shapiro said, “This is such a horrendous tweet, Mia Khalifa. Consider yourself fired effective immediately. Simply disgusting. Beyond disgusting. Please evolve and become a better human being. The fact you are condoning death, rape, beatings and hostage-taking is truly gross. No words can explain your ignorance. We need humans to come together, especially in the face of tragedy. I pray for you to become a better person. However, it clearly seems like it’s too late for you,”

Ms. Khalifa responded to the news by saying, “I’d say supporting Palestine has lost me business opportunities, but I’m more angry at myself for not checking whether or not I was entering into business with Zionists. My bad.”

She said, “I just want to make it clear that this statement in no way shape or form is enticing spread of violence, I specifically said freedom fighters because that’s what the Palestinian citizens are… fighting for freedom every day.”

In a follow-up tweet, Khalifa said, “I just wanna make sure there’s 4k footage of my people breaking down the walls of the open-air prison they’ve been forced out of their homes and into so we have good options for the history books that write about how they freed themselves from apartheid.” She then indirectly addressed Shapiro, saying, “Please worry about your sad little company lacking direction and purpose before you utter my name again I stand with all people fighting oppression, now and always, do your research before begging for my investment in your little project, I’m from LEBANON, are you insane for expecting me to be on the side of colonialism you f***ing weirdo.”
