Now 21 years old, Mia Khalifa moved from Beirut, Lebanon to the U.S. at the age of 10 before eventually moving to Miami, where she is now based.

She quickly became quite a hit on Pornhub, as evidenced by her #1 ranking among fans, but not everyone is impressed by her career achievement.

Her elite ranking drew strong criticism from many, including some in the Middle East who branded her “a disgrace” to the country and “shameful."

Mia Khalifa has been re-tweeting the abuse sparked by those taking issue with her Middle Eastern origins, some of which included death threats.

Many took issue with a scene from one video showing her in a hijab, a part of traditional female Muslim dress, calling that “problematic and gross."

She noted that there are "Hollywood movies that depict Muslims in a much worse manner than any scene [production company] Bang Bros could produce."

Another user also sent a manipulated photo of Khalifa wearing an orange jumpsuit and being held by Jihadi John, the infamous ISIS militant.

The caption read “coming soon." Others were even less subtle, saying her head “will be cut soon” or that she will “the first person in Hellfire."

Her response to that? “I’ve been meaning to get a little tan recently." On a more serious note, she hit back at the myriad criticisms and threats.

"Doesn't the Middle East have more important things to worry about besides me?" Mia Tweeted. "How about finding a president? Or containing ISIS?"

It's a fair question. Khalifa also noted that her parents recently stopped speaking to her because of her career choice and subsequent Internet fame.

“I’ve dragged their name through the mud,” she said.

"I feel guilty for dragging them into this and having all their friends know now that it’s on Lebanese media. But that was never my intention.”

Khalifa also has many supporters defending her decision to do porn, obviously, and has not indicated that she plans to let this firestorm slow her down.
