    Jacob Elordi is seen masturbating in a deepfake video that is circulating on social media. The video is either AI-generated or has Elordi’s face digitally superimposed on another. The video first started circulating widely on X on Monday night. X swiftly removed the post, citing violations of its rules, but not before it garnered over 3 million views, according to NBC News.

    Social media users were quick to notice the inconsistencies in the video, such as the absence of Elordi’s distinctive birthmarks. This helped to identify the fake nature of the video, with many suggesting that the man in the video is indeed not Elordi himself.

    Further clarification came from a content creator on OnlyFans, who claimed the original video featured him. He further revealed that he was only 17 years old when the video was made. “That’s literally my video lmao deep fake is getting creepy,” he commented on the video post, while also trying to ignore getting involved in the situation after being tagged by multiple users.

    Jacob Elordi or his representatives have not yet commented on the incident. The news comes amidst an ongoing troubling trend of celebrities being targeted by explicit deepfake content. Earlier in the year, sexually explicit deepfake images of Taylor Swift also went viral on X, and amassed over 27 million views before being taken down.

    Deepfake images or videos are artificially generated or manipulated visuals created using advanced machine learning techniques, particularly deep learning. These images can make it appear as though people are doing or saying things they never actually did. The term “deepfake” is a combination of “deep learning” and “fake.”

    Since its inception and usage in the public domain, nonconsensual pornographic content involving celebrities has become a norm and many have raised concerns over it.
