The former adult film actress Mia Khalifa shared several posts criticizing Iran’s regime and showing support for the protests that sparked after the death of Kurdish woman Mahsa Amini.  

The Lebanese-American ex-Pornhub star shared several stories on her Instagram Story explaining the current situation in Iran after she attended a Karol G concert in Miami.

Protests erupted in Iran after the death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini, who died in police custody for allegedly failing to adhere to the country’s strict hijab rules.

Police claim Amini had a heart attack at the police station, causing her to fall into a coma. She passed away two days later on September 16. However, several witnesses claim she was severely beaten by the police and leaked medical scans suggest that the beating led to her death.

Thousands of demonstrators have taken to the streets waving and burning hijabs while shouting “death to the dictator.” According to local media, Iran’s Revolutionary Guard has brutally cracked down on the protests, leading to several deaths. At least 1,200 others have been arrested, according to Iranian state-backed news agency Tasmin.

One of Mia’s posts included a quote from Amini’s father regarding what Iranian authorities have said about her death.

"They're lying. They're telling lies. Everything is a lie... no matter how much I begged, they [doctors] wouldn't let me see my daughter."

In another post, Mia criticizes Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi and his demand that the renowned journalist Christian Amanpour wear a headscarf while interviewing him in New York City.

"Why are we giving such fascists a platform in the American media and bowing to their demands?" she asked.

She also shared a compilation of videos posted originally on TikTok of relatives of regime officials parting abroad while the demonstrators were being killed by security forces.

"Not a hijab in sight for the children/grandchildren of the Islamic regime! The morality police doesn’t have Snapchat??" she asked.
