While sports commentator Mia Khalifa was only in the porn industry for three months, her impact has lasted years. In recent months, she’s used her massive platform for activism, such as being transparent about the perils of doing mainstream porn. Now, the Lebanese-American is using her leverage to help those suffering in Beirut — her birthplace — following last week’s explosion.
Khalifa is auctioning off her “infamous” glasses on eBay to benefit the Lebanese Red Cross. As of publication, the top bid out of 189 is set at $100,000 with four more days left to go. Infamous because, well, one Google search and you’ll see that she often wore the glasses in her adult films.
The condition is stated on eBay as “Used & Abused,” a tongue-in-cheek reference to their origins. Khalifa has promised to sign the glasses if the winner wishes, and take a Polaroid before shipping them off. In the eBay description, she says she’s also taking suggestions for other prizes.
“LET’S GET WILD AND RAISE A SHIT TON OF MONEY FOR THE LEBANESE PEOPLE,” she wrote. Given her status and huge auction price already, Khalifa will probably get her wish.
