Porn star-turned-activist Mia Khalifa is auctioning her signature glasses to raise money for the Lebanese Red Cross after a blast rocked the country’s capital, killing over 155 and injuring thousands.
Lebanese-American Khalifa has chosen to sell off the infamous glasses, which were her signature accessory when she rose to fame in the porn industry in 2014.
The glasses are being auctioned off on eBay, where the bid currently stands at over $95,000.
The novelty glasses are the best prop, I will sign them (if you want), and take one last polaroid wearing them before sending them off to their new home! she said on the e-commerce platform’s listing.
I’m adding something more to the auction every $25k raised and announcing it on Instagram, she said. Before the original listing was removed at $100k (for reasons now cleared with eBay.
This auction is being run with both their and the LRC’s awareness), the last prize added for that milestone was my retainer, she added.
Mia Khalifa said that she will be live streaming the final few hours of the auction, referring to the Red Cross as Lebanon’s most valuable asset.
She also hinted that she wanted to break the record for selling the most expensive pair of glasses, tweeting at Guinness World Records.
The current most expensive pair of glasses stands at $183,000 which are John Lennon’s iconic green sunglasses.
Last week, Mia Khalifa came under fire for begging France to re-colonize Lebanon on her Snapchat story.
The massive Beirut blast on Tuesday, which was felt across the county and as far as the island of Cyprus, was recorded by the sensors of the American Institute of Geophysics (USGS) as having the power of a magnitude 3.3 earthquake.
