Mia Khalifa's short stint in pornography propelled her to a level of fame she never expected. Since then, she has built a large social media following. She has 27.8 million followers on Instagram alone.
On the late-night talk show Ziwe, Mia talked about the act of selling your body online. She has an OnlyFans page that is doing very well to say the least. She shared that she makes $10,000 a day from her OnlyFans subscriptions. She then made a comparison that has rubbed a lot of people the wrong way.
Mia Khalifa Says "Being in the Army Is Worse" Than Selling Your Body on OnlyFans
The host Ziwe compared the sex work industry with OnlyFans and even acting in general, asking whether there's a difference in these industries in terms of selling your body to strangers.
"Honestly, I think that selling your body, like if we are going by that definition, being in the army is worse than being on OnlyFans," Mia said. "You're selling your body to the government."
"Wow," Ziwe replied.
The clip was shared on social media and has since gone viral. Many people agreed with Mia or at least conceded that she made a good point, while others insist that serving your country doesn't at all compare to selling nude photos and videos of yourself online.
Regardless of what people say, Mia is more than happy with her decision. "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," she said right after she launched her OnlyFans account. "I want to take my power back and just post what I want and what makes me feel good, and I'm just so thankful that y'all are along for this wild ride."
