Former adult star Mia Khalifa on Friday said she is “still standing with the farmers” after her comments, criticising the treatment being meted to the protesting farmers, drew sharp reactions.

A tweet by international pop star Rihanna on Tuesday triggered a wave of support for protesting farmers with variety of worldwide celebrities, activists and politicians expressing their solidarity with them. Khalifa too had shared a tweet.

The government had criticised the tweets by Rihanna and other celebrities, saying facts on the difficulty must be ascertained before people rushing to discuss the difficulty , calling it “neither accurate nor responsible”.

Khalifa, 27, took to Twitter again and shared an image from a protest by a gaggle of individuals , holding placards and posters of her, Rihanna and Swedish teen climate activist Greta Thunberg.

One of the placards read, “Mia Khalifa regains consciousness.”

She quipped about the gaffe and wrote, “Confirming I even have actually regained consciousness, and would really like to many thanks for your concern, albeit unnecessary. Still standing with the farmers, though.”

Khalifa had earlier criticised the web shutdown at protest sites and tweeted, “What within the human rights violations goes on?!”

In a subsequent tweet on Wednesday, the Lebanese American artiste had also slammed those that called farmers “paid actors.”

“‘Paid actors’ huh? Quite the casting director, I hope they’re not overlooked during awards season. I stand with the farmers. #FarmersProtest,” she had written.

Meena Harris, an American lawyer and niece folks vice chairman Kamala Harris, actress Amanda Cerni, singers Jay Sean and Dr Zeus and Hollywood star John Cusack have also voiced their support to the protesting farmers.

Tens of thousands of farmers are protesting at three border points on the outskirts of Delhi demanding an entire repeal of the three farm laws.
