ISIS threatens to 'behead' former porn star Mia Khalifa

Social media users associated with the Islamic State threatened to "behead" a former Lebanese-American porn star, and now the 21-year-old is speaking out.

Mia Khalifa, a performer made popular on the "PornHub" website, revealed the details of these online threats during a recent interview with The Sports Junkies, saying the grotesque messages included mocked-up execution photos.

Khalifa, though, says she has no intention of giving her internet attackers what they want.

"[Y]ou can't show weakness. That’s exactly what they’re looking for," Khalifa said. "I really try and just make it look like it rolls off, but I’ll admit, it gets to you after a while."

One Khalifa scene specifically sparked controversy, when she appeared having sex while wearing a hijab. A hijab is a head covering worn by Muslim women in varying practices of Islam. 

Erotic materials are widely banned in the Middle East, and are only permitted in Lebanon and Turkey.
