Jenna Jameson, who converted to Judaism in 2015, said she is taking “an indefinite break from Twitter” after being attacked for her religion and for having been a porn star.
“It’s near impossible to just have normal conversations without hundreds of people attacking me for the past I cannot change,” she tweeted Wednesday.
Jameson also wrote: “I want to clarify why I’m leaving. My sobriety and faith are the most important things to me. I am being attacked for my faith. Being Jewish. I must protect my love for G-d above everything, my sobriety and strength stem from him and his grace.”
Her Twitter account is no longer in service.
Jameson is an unabashed conservative and supporter of President Donald Trump.
One person tweeted that Jameson was going to hell because she is “conservative,” “Jewish” and a “hoe.” In response to a deleted comment she tweeted “Antisemitism is alive and well.”
Her Instagram account, where she chronicles her journey with weight loss, was still active on Thursday. She posted a photo of herself in a drab olive-coloured T-shirt featuring the logo of the Israel Defence Forces and wrote: “Remember sometimes people will doubt you, second guess you and your faith. Let them. Show them what the lord has made you capable of. Be unshakeable. Be brave. ✡️”
Jameson became a Jew by choice before her marriage to the Israeli-born diamond dealer Lior Bitton, with whom she has a daughter named Batel. She also has been sober for the past three years.
While life in Israel has returned to normal and hopes are high that Britain is set for a summer without restrictions thanks to vaccines, for billions around the world there is no such imminent light at the end of the tunnel. In the majority of countries around the globe, particularly the poorest, the vaccine rollout has barely kicked off.
That's why Jewish News, the leading source of news and opinion for the entire UK community, is throwing its full weight behind UNICEF’s VaccinAid campaign by using this platform usually reserved for encouraging donations towards our own journalism to instead urge our readers around the globe to perform the greatest mitzvah: saving a life.
We have never before done this for any charity fundraiser but it's hard to recall a campaign that affects so many people, and indeed an entire planet aching for a return to normality. Just like the Chief Rabbi and Rachel Riley, we hope to boost the mission to deliver two billion vaccines, 165 million treatments and 900 million test kits around the world by the end of this year.
Please donate as much as you can, in the spirit of the Talmudic sages: “to save one life is to save the world entire”
