Mia Khalifa has responded to the people trolling her for the comments she made about OnlyFans and the military, and it's safe to say she stands by her opinion.
Earlier this week, footage circulated online in which the former adult entertainment star said it's ‘worse’ to 'sell your body' by joining the military than to be on OnlyFans.
The 29-year-old made the comments on late-night talk show Ziwe, hosted by Ziwe Fumudoh, where she said ‘selling your body’ on the subscription platform is not as bad as ‘selling your body to the government’ by joining the army.
You can watch the clip below:
The clip has since been shared on TikTok, where it’s picked up thousands of likes while sparking a lively discussion.
While many people were in agreement with the influencer, others were critical of her take, including this person who commented: "Service to our country is NOT shameful," with another stating: "At least in the army you do something [for] society."
Well, it appears Mia has caught wind of the backlash and has since taken to Twitter to offer up her response.
"To everyone up in arms about my statement that being in the military is worse than being on OnlyFans cause you’re selling your body to the gov’t - we’re both serving this nation!" she wrote.
"What do you think they sent for morale back in the day? More troops, or Marilyn Monroe in a skirt ???"

Once again, it's sparked an active debate, with plenty of people standing by Mia's opinion.
"Sadly your statement's not wrong, at least with OnlyFans you're not being lied to about what you're doing," wrote one Twitter user.
Another said, "Most of the people complaining probably never have served. I’ve been in 8 years now… she ain’t too far off."
A third added, "If you’re gonna sell your body to a government, at least do it for a government that doesn’t have a century long history of warcrimes."
However there were, of course, those on the other side of the fence, with some describing her comments as 'disrespectful'.
"Just delete and take the L on this," said one, adding, "Completely disrespectful."
Whether you agree with her thoughts or not, Mia is making an absolute fortune on OnlyFans.
According to the International Business Times, she is one of the highest-earning creators on the platform.
In the same interview on Ziwe, she revealed that she makes around $10,000 (£8,200) per day from the subscription site – compared to the $12,000 (£9,800) she made during her three month long porn career.
And she gets to pocket the lot instead of having to divvy up any money made with producers.
While OnlyFans is mostly used to share explicit content, Mia's profile reads that hers is 'safe for work, but spicy'.
"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 after launching her OnlyFans account.
"Even though I will not be creating nude content, I am going to be treating this page like my Instagram without [the] terms of service."
She added: "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."
