Mia Khalifa has quoted a fan on Twitter to reveal why she quit Pornhub.
The 27-year-old former adult actress joined subscription service OnlyFans last month but has been criticised by some fans for not creating pornographic content for her platform.
After working in the adult entertainment industry for just three months, Mia went on to build a huge social media following which has soared to 21 million Instagram followers.
Mia has faced backlash for the decision which she addressed over social media on Monday night.
She reposted a tweet by British lad Aaron Masg, 21, from Birmingham who said: “The industry abused her and coerced her into doing things she didn’t want to do. OnlyFans gives her 100% control over what she does, who with, her content. There’s a big difference, only the ignorant don’t see it.”
Sharing his tweet on her Instagram stories, Mia added: “With a fanbase comprised of future sex offenders, what more do you expect? (Not Aaron though. Aaron will be protected at all costs when KAM2020 starts)”.
Mia’s OnlyFans subscribers pay $11.99 (£9.28) per month, with fans paying for what she describes as “Safe for work content, kinda”.
In a previous statement Mia shared with her OnlyFans subscribers, she said: “I am finally growing into my self-confidence in who I am and the decisions I make for me, and this is my way of being myself outside the perimeters of conventional social media.
“Even though I will not be creating nude content, I am going to be treating this page like my Instagram without terms of service lol.
