Festivalgoers hide in a bush after infiltration in Israel
Playboy has cut ties with Mia Khalifa and completely removed her content after posts making light of the attacks on Israel.
Khalifa, 30, sparked a furious backlash online after supporting the terror attacks by Hamas that have left hundreds of Israelis dead.
The Lebanese-American star shared multiple comments on X/Twitter, including joking about a “Zionist apartheid regime being brought down by guerrilla fighters in fake Gucci shirts.”
The adult magazine has since shared a statement confirming the end of Playboy’s relationship with Khalifa.
Furthermore, her content has been completely stricken from their website, as her page now shows a ‘Not Found’ graphic.

“We are writing today to let you know of our decision to terminate Playboy’s relationship with Mia Khalifa, including deleting Mia’s Playboy channel on our creator platform,” the publication wrote in an email sent to users.
“Mia has made disgusting and reprehensible comments celebrating Hamas’ attacks on Israel and the murder of innocent men, women, and children.
“At Playboy, we encourage free expression and constructive political debate, but we have a zero-tolerance policy for hate speech.
“We expect Mia to understand her words and actions have consequences.”

In view of her five million followers, Khalifa shared several posts supporting Hamas’ bombings and kidnappings, even asking for better footage to watch the attacks more clearly.
“Can someone please tell the freedom fighters in Palestine to flip their phones and film horizontal,” she asked.
On Monday, she returned to the platform to attempt to defend her incendiary comments.
“I just want to make it clear that this statement in no way shape or form is enticing spread of violence,” she wrote.

“I specifically said freedom fighters because that’s what the Palestinian citizens are… fighting for freedom every day.”
Hamas militants crossed into Israel from the Gaza Strip over the weekend and murdered a reported 260 civilians celebrating the Jewish holiday of Sukkot.
The Supernova Festival was one of the first sites targeted in the attacks, which forced victims to hide under bushes and record messages to their loved ones in clips posted to social media.
