Sports commentator Mia Khalifa has taken to social media to speak about her experience in the porn industry, saying she regrets her brief stint as one of Pornhub’s most popular performers.

“Those 11 videos will haunt me until I die, and I don’t want another girl to go through that — because NO ONE should,” Khalifa responded to an Instagram user who tagged the former performer in a post about Khalifa’s past porn career. In the original post, which, according to Hollywood Life, was shared on Khalifa’s Instagram story, the Instagram user warned aspiring porn performers against entering the industry, writing, “Women are haunted by the decisions they made years ago. But, they weren’t their decisions… Don’t support another vulnerable woman getting exploited just because they need money for rent.”

Later, Khalifa continued to open up about her past on Twitter, where she revealed that she would love to see her explicit videos removed from the internet. Replying to a Twitter user who wrote “Mia Khalifa being in the porn industry for 3 months and being that popular is crazy, she definitely deserved a bigger bag,” the sports commentator wrote, “I’d rather have it removed than take a dime from that bag.” Khalifa also shared that she was “offered millions to return” for another video, saying that she “felt violated all over again by the sheer audacity that they thought my body was contingent on the right price (years after I started speaking out against industry practices).”

Khalifa also urged fans and followers to be very cautious about getting into the porn industry. “Please please please think about this if you are considering the sex industry,” she wrote in a tweet. “They make it impossible to rectify your regrets should you have them in the future.”
