While many were praising her for her cameo, others found it offensive

In season 2 of Ramy, we get to see the lead character Ramy Hassan, who is played by the show’s co-creator Ramy Youssef, trying to approach his faith once again, and ends up meeting the leader of a Sufi Mosque in New Jersey named Sheikh Ali Malik, who is portrayed by Mahershala Ali. Over there, he confesses to his porn addiction and talks about his efforts to turn over a new leaf.

Malik then suggests that Rami should start thinking from the porn star’s viewpoint and imagine how painful it must be for them. The matter isn’t given further attention until episode four when Rami goes to an Emirati Businessman for donating to the mosque, and that’s when he runs into former porn star Mia Khalifa, who played herself in the show.

The purpose of the Emirati Businessman was to conquer everything, which included conquering his own porn addiction. That’s when he realised that if he thinks of Mia as his own mother, he would no longer have to beat his meat to her. The purpose in itself is very funny. The businessman keeps Mia at his home so that he can purchase her breast milk to drink every now and then. He even makes Rami sample it.

Many of the fans loved the Khalifa’s role in the show, as well as Ali’s. Mia Khalifa’s casting was not needless as many speculated when they first saw the show and that she played her role well and everyone has come to love her.

Negative comments were from some old-school guys who hated the stereotyping and they hated that a former porn star was brought in.

Mia herself was unbothered and thanked the show’s team for the wonderful opportunity.
