Despite any actual evidence or reason, Twitter users have been spreading a nasty rumor that Mia Khalifa may have contracted HIV.
The news literally appeared out of no where, but people ran with it and even boldly mentioned Khalifa in their tweets. Some thought enough to ask if it were true or not.
While other users just seemingly made jokes about it or laughed it off. Some on the other hand found that the claims were baseless and demanding to know why there was no proof.
One Twitter user wrote, “MIA KHALIFA HIV POSITIVE? LMFAOOOOO IM DEAD BRUH.”
While another tweeted a very valid question, “Everyone's tweeting about Mia Khalifa being diagnosed with HIV, but where's the proof?”

As this could damper anyones mood, Khalifa seemed to be unfazed. In fact, Mia being the prankster she is decided to have some fun with the news and make HIV positive jokes.
Scroll down to see Mia’s jokes about the nasty HIV rumors:
Khalifa took the joke route and flooded Twitter with hilarious pics and comments letting fans and followers know they shouldn’t believe every rumor that comes across their feed.
First, Khalifa referenced an episode of the FX comedy It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia in which Frank Reynolds (Danny DeVito) pretends to have AIDS just to skip a pool line.
She captioned the pic collage:
“Jokes on y'all, this is gonna be me next time the beer line is too long at a hockey game.”
Check out Khalifa's Tweet below.

And for those not into It's Always Sunny, here's the moment in question:
After the tweet generated some perplexing replies, the former adult film star followed it up with another popular reference to another hit TV series.
This time however, Khalifa channeled some South Park.
It was a simple tweet and read, “I'm not just sure. I'm HIV positive.”
Again, if you are not familiar with the reference see the South park clip along with Khalifa’s hilarious tweet below:
I'm not just sure. I'm HIV positive. https://t.co/pdJJ7OFlMq— Mia Khalifa (@miakhalifa) April 20, 2017
But of course, that wasn’t the end for Khalifa.
Mia then posted a picture of a text she had going with a friend about the gossip, in which the friend congratulated Mia on her superb Twitter joking. Then gave her the hashtag #IStandWithMia.
She then took it a step further and found a way to get paid from the nonsense. She posted a picture of her store and new shirt that joked about the tweet of her being HIV positive and added the caption, “Y'all are making me trend worldwide... for free... Here's a link to my store, we ship internationally.”
