Jacob Elordi targeted in sexually explicit deepfake

The post circulating on X (formerly Twitter) features Elordi's digitally distorted face superimposed on a figure engaged in a sexual act. One post involving the minor garnered over 3 million views on Tuesday. The OnlyFans model whose body was used in the video addressed the issue on his social media platform and slammed those responsible.

The post has since been removed by X with a message stating "This Post violated X's Rules." Social media followers observed that the individual in the video was clearly not Elordi because he lacked the unique birthmarks he usually possesses.
