Mia Khalifa says she has a burner Twitter account to 'cyber bully haters'
| Last updated
It's not uncommon for many celebrities to be the brunt of some internet trolling from time to time and, naturally, many have developed their own methods of dealing with the online hate.
And this is no different for Mia Khalifa, who has revealed to fans her specific way of handling the negative comments constantly hurled her way.
The former adult film actor-turned-social media star has explained that she uses an anonymous burner Twitter account to hit back at the 'cyber bully haters' when it all gets a bit tough.
The 29-year-old first came into the public eye back in 2014 after appearing in a highly controversial pornographic video which many found offensive.
The Lebanese-born influencer and sports broadcaster once held the title of being the top-rated star on Pornhub, causing controversy in the Middle East after she performed sex scenes while wearing a hijab.
Khalifa is also on OnlyFans - where she's among one of the highest earners on the platform.
However, the social media personality has long-since been criticised and insulted online following her short stint in the adult film industry and still suffers the brunt of mass online harassment.
So last week, Khalifa took to Twitter and uploaded a video of herself dancing and singing along to a Nicki Minaj track in her pyjamas - toothbrush microphone and all.
The video was captioned: "That's mother" and has since been viewed millions of times after the social media was asked by a fan if she was a Minaj fan - or a 'barb'.
One fan quote tweeted the lip-synching video writing: "I just know she has a stan Twitter burner."
Accompanied with three cry-laughing emojis, it's clear that Khalifa has cracked the code on how to deal with the onslaught of online insults she regularly receives.
Fans of the social media influencer were quick to praise Khalifa for her comedic confession to running a burner Twitter account.
One fan wrote: "Mia you never fail to be more iconic," while another posted: "You are amazing."
A third commented: "I'm not mad at it."
While it has not been confirmed whether Khalifa was joking about the burner account or not, it's clear that she's no stranger to hitting back at people who criticise her online.
This includes her being told to 'seek forgiveness' for her previous career in the adult film industry by a Twitter user who clearly was not a fan of Khalifa's sing-along video.
The condemning tweet read: "You said in the media that 'people look at me with bad eyes because of my past' yesterday."
The tweet continued to tell Khalifa to 'ask forgiveness' with a 'sincere heart'.
Taking no time to fire back, Khalifa simply retweeted: "Go f**k yourself."
