"DJ Khaled is a b***h."
Mia Khalifa has hit out at DJ Khaled for his silence on Israel’s attacks on Palestine, despite being of Palestinian origin.
An armed conflict between Israel and Palestine broke out on October 7, 2023, when the Palestinian militant group Hamas launched a surprise attack.
Israeli military forces retaliated with extensive strikes on the Gaza Strip and a subsequent invasion of Gaza.
Since the violence began, at least 9,770 Palestinians, including 4,800 children, have been killed in Israeli air strikes on the Gaza Strip.
Meanwhile, at least 1,400 Israelis are reported to have been killed.
The conflict has seen celebrities express solidarity with either Israel or Palestine, with Mia Khalifa showing her support for the latter.
The former adult film star has been using her social media platforms to share the plight of Palestinian people.
Mia has now criticised DJ Khaled for his silence on the matter.
On X, she reposted a user’s tweet about a Palestine solidarity march in Paris.
An image showed one protestor holding up a placard that read:
“DJ Khaled is a b***h.”
Mia agreed with the statement and wrote: “Major key alert.”

Mia Khalifa’s followers sided with her and criticised the famed record producer, with one user demanding:
“Boycott DJ Khaled.”
A comment read: “That’s 100% true.”
Another shared a picture from another protest featuring a similar opinion of DJ Khaled.
Claiming that DJ Khaled cares more about money than the Palestinian people, one netizen said:
“Mans was before being exposed as a coward, more concerned about his money than his people.”
A user claimed:
“Give him time. He’s still weighing whether rappers will like him or not if he chooses to man up for his people.”
DJ Khaled was born in New Orleans, Louisiana, to Palestinian parents who immigrated to the United States.
Since the violence broke out, the DJ has been facing criticism for not speaking about the matter and for not showing solidarity with his country of origin.
Although she has been showing her support for Palestine, Mia Khalifa came under fire for appearing to support Hamas’ initial attack on Israel.
She tweeted at the time: “If you can look at the situation in Palestine and not be on the side of Palestinians, then you are on the wrong side of apartheid and history will show that in time.”
In another post, Mia said:
“Can someone please tell the freedom fighters in Palestine to flip their phones and film horizontal.”
Her posts resulted in Mia being dropped by Playboy and losing out on a podcast deal with Canadian broadcaster and radio host Todd Shapiro.
After staying silent on Instagram, Mia returned to the platform and shared a chilling clip of the fighting.
