Mia Khalifa Death Threats is the ongoing feud between conservative Muslims on Twitter and Lebanese-American adult film actress Mia Khalifa, who became a target of slut-shaming harassments and death threats for performing sex acts while wearing the hijab, a traditional covering worn by Muslim women, in early January 2015.


On November 27th, 2014, an animated GIF of a scene from one of Khalifa's adult films was submitted to the /r/NSFW_GIF[2] subreddit, where it gained over 2,100 votes (90% upvoted) in the first two months. On December 28th, Khalifa became the most popular adult film star on PornHub.[1]

(shown below). In one week, the tweet garnered more than 1,200 retweets and 1,000 favorites.
