Porn stars Lisa Ann and Nikki Benz got into an epic Twitter war this weekend

Warning: This article contains adult language and topics that may be NSFW.

This was an awesome year for celebrity beefs, from Iggy vs. Azealia to Taylor vs. Katy to Marlon Wayans vs. Lord Jamar.

But if watching famous people sling shade on social media is one of your favorite spectator sports, then you should probably be following porn stars Lisa AnnNikki BenzBonnie Rotten, and Christy Mack, who were embroiled in extremely public tifts on Twitter last weekend. And unlike fights in an actual porno, it didn’t end with hair-pulling, scratching, and an elaborate lesbian daisy chain.

It all started when adult performer Nikki Benz, who’s most famous for announcing her Toronto mayoral run earlier this year, tweeted photos of her birthday celebration in Dubai. She also posted a video on her Instagram of a camel race, with the caption “When you in Dubai you bet on camels.”

Then Lisa Ann, who announced on Facebook that she was retiring from performing in porn earlier this week, posted the following subtweets:

Obviously, the tweets were a not-so-subtle implication that Benz was in Dubai not for her birthday but as an escort. (While it’s fairly common for adult performers to escort on the side, it’s an extremely controversial practice in the industry, with some arguing that performers who escort without using protection put other performers at risk for contracting STIs. Lisa Ann has gone on record speaking out against performers escorting.)

Enraged, Benz fought back, calling Lisa Ann a hypocrite, a “bully ass hoe,” and attacked her reputation in the adult industry. It escalated quickly, with Benz ultimately accusing Lisa Ann of engaging in various unsavory activities and challenging her to a boxing match :

Other porn stars, both active and former, chimed in:

Lisa Ann’s fans also jumped in to provide emotional support:

Benz concluded by telling Lisa Ann she was “wiping her ass with her face.”

It went on like this for a few hours, with Lisa Ann retaliating by accusing Benz of, among other things living in the U.S. illegally, then declaring all-out war:

She tweeted the following this morning:

Some of Nikki and Lisa’s fans were upset, and wanted Porn Mommy and Daddy to stop fighting:

Over on the alt-porn end of the spectrum, adult performer Bonnie Rotten lashed out at former adult performer Christy Mack, who was recently seriously injured in a brutal beating by her ex-boyfriend, the MMA fighter Jon “War Machine” Koppenhaver:

This isn’t the first time Rotten has gone after Mack on social media after her attack, in which Mack suffered 18 broken bones, a ruptured liver, and missing teeth. There appears to be some longstanding beef between the two, but Mack took the high road (kinda):

The verbal abuse culminated with Mack accusing Rotten of peeing instead of squirting on-camera, a cardinal sin in the porn world:

Rotten later apologized (kinda) for going after Mack.

Is there a clear victor in these Twitter porn wars? We’ll leave it up to you to decide. But there’s one clear winner: Us fans, gleefully watching it all go down from the safety of our keyboards.
