Former adult entertainment star Mia Khalifa set the Internet on fire on July 4th, as she was slammed and trolled after she denounced America for "destabilizing other countries" in an Instagram story. The 'cancel culture' that drives such feelings towards porn stars is exactly what Brandi Love fell victim to when her invitation as "Adult VIP" was withdrawn from Turning Point USA, an organization that promotes conservative ideals on high school and college campuses, which began its Tampa event on Saturday and will continue until Tuesday.

"It's good to be around so many young conservatives. Gives me some hope!", Love had tweeted when she got the invitation. Eventually, Jaden McNeil, a follower of the white nationalist Nicholas Fuentes brought the matter up on Telegram. "Imagine sending your kids to this conference think they're gonna learn about Christian Conservative values, and they come home with photos with pornstars," he said along with an image of Love.



 

 

Love then tweeted a picture of her rejection email. "Can't make this sh** up lol!! I just watched [Turning Point USA founder] Charlie Kirk, [political commentator] Dan Bongino, [GOP Senator] Rick Scott and [libertarian columnist] Kat Timpf speak about freedom, censorship, how inclusive the 'movement' is ...etc...," Love tweeted with the image of the email. "And then they had me thrown out of the Turning Point USA conference. The Republican Party is broken." Defending her presence at the event and responding to naysayers, Love tweeted, "I was not there representing my profession. I was there as a citizen to be around other conservatives". She also retweeted a tweet, which read: "I will not be part of a cancel culture. I will not be a hypocrite and not embrace freedom Loving Citizens.I do not care if you dig or porn, if this makes you happy then so be it.I may not personally agree, but that doesn't mean you're a bad person @brandi_love".



 



 



 

 

Who is Brandi Love?

Brandi Love was born Tracey Lynn Livermore. Love, 48, is a pornographic actress from Dearborn, Michigan, and is of English, Polish and Jewish heritage. She was raised Presbyterian and attended Central Michigan University and grew up in Plymouth, Michigan. She has a  degree in exercise science and a minor in business communication from CMU, according to Central Michigan Life. "Back when I was on campus I had two major goals: Maintain a 3.5 (GPA) or higher and spend as much time as possible at the (Student Activity Center)," she said to the website. She said she was addicted to fitness and trained two or three hours every day. Love is also a self-described conservative and Republican who backed Donald Trump and "back in the day" voted for Bill Clinton. She has contributed to The Federalist, a conservative online publication. 

Her grandfather is Jesse Lauriston Livermore, a stock trader, who was considered a pioneer of day trading and was one of the richest men in the world. Some of Livermore's trades, such as taking short positions before the 1906 San Francisco earthquake and just before the Wall Street Crash of 1929, are legendary within investing circles.

She is married to CMU alumnus Chris Potoski and they have a daughter in Wake Forest, North Carolina. After Potoski had a stress-induced heart attack, Love transitioned from managing her own custom wine label firm to working in Harley-sales Davidson's and marketing department. Doctors had advised her and her husband to adopt a more relaxed lifestyle. So she dropped her given name and began going by her professional moniker, Brandi Love while filming in-home adult videos with her husband. Livermore has worked for Brazzers, Girlfriends Films, Hustler Video, and other adult film businesses since her debut in 2004.

"My husband and I had been married for nearly 10 years and were doing very well in our white-collar careers. And then everything changed," Love said to the website, adding that her entry into the industry was "atypical". Potoski was at the time taking 240 flights a year and was home only nine days a month, which, Love says, "just got to be too much". Eventually, the couple started Grapevine Greetings, a company that created special labels and greeting cards for wine bottles. While working in Raleigh, NC, some people who knew how to develop and market websites approached them with an idea that required "investment" and was in "the adult film industry".

"At that time, the "solo model" site was very popular and the decision that had to be made was "Who would be our first model?" It took me about two seconds to say "What about me? What about us?"," Love said. "We had been sexually adventurous and in our version of an open relationship for years. Now, the only difference would be the cameras," she said while adding, "I have always had a bit of an exhibitionist fetish in me."

When answering a question about what she felt people should know about her, Love said, "My profession necessitates developing a thick skin. Negativity comes from all sides, and while I accept that it comes with the territory, I'm still as sensitive and fragile as anyone else. I'll err on the side of kindness and compassion if (other people) will."
