Her post got the attention of Mia Khalifa, who commented on her TikTok post.
The young activist debuted on the video-sharing app TikTok last year in December to encourage people to donate to her cause and support her fundraising campaign.
The 23-year-old Oxford graduate in her debut video said,” Some of you might already know me, you might have heard my UN speech or might have read my book I am Malala, while some of you might not know me, so I’ll briefly introduce myself.”
“I have also done campaigning and advocacy for 12 years for education and safe quality of education for all girls around the world,” she added. “On Giving Tuesday when you might be deciding to support different causes, I ask you to support Malala Fund and help us ensure that all girls can go to school,” she appealed.
Now the Lebanese American former adult actress Mia Khalifa who is known for her adult films throughout the world has commented on Malala’s video. She wrote: “Queen”. Malala in reply wrote: “Hey bestie”.
At least 30,000 people have liked Mia Khalifa’s comment so far while about 23,000 people have admired Malala’s reply.
But the netizens can’t let go of these comments on Malala’s TikTok post. Malala Yousafzai is being ridiculed for calling Mia Khalifa her ‘bestie’.

However, if Mia Khalifa and Malala Yousafzai are friends they must have bonded over their passion to highlight key issues, i.e. activism.
Mia Khalifa has emerged as an activist as of late. From extending support for Lebanon and the Middle East to the Black Lives Matter movement.
She has also been vocal about how the adult film industry exploits young women. As well as how the real victims, the women end up being slut-shamed and stigmatized.
The use of her platform to highlight social issues isn’t limited to the United States. Just recently she voiced support for Indian farmers protesting against the new farm laws.
How can we look at those eyes and not see all of our grandparents, Indian or not!!! https://t.co/wsyzpRDSio
