A porn star has been jailed for two months after she posted a series of offensive and threatening tweets.
The woman, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was sentenced on Tuesday for a total of three years and three months after being found guilty of sending “grossly inappropriate” tweets, including sending a series in March and April 2017 that targeted women who appeared on her porn website.
She was also found guilty on charges of sending obscene material to a minor.
Her Twitter account, @JadeLeo, contained several tweets including one where she wrote “I’m a porn star, and I’m not ashamed of it”.
“I know the porn industry is full of ‘sluts’ who make millions in the industry,” she wrote.
“It is not the porn I want to be.”
The court heard that the tweets appeared to be made on a computer in a hotel room in Sydney.
A third Twitter account linked to JadeLeo included several photos of her posing in front of the Sydney Opera House.
The court also heard the porn star had made comments in private to her followers about how she would like to have sex with the prime minister, Malcolm Turnbull.
In one tweet, JadeLeob wrote: “What I want is to have my balls eaten by the PM.
What would you want me to do to him?”
She also threatened to reveal the details of an anonymous tip she received.
“You can get my name and email if you want, I won’t let you down,” she said.

The court was told that the porn actress was arrested in May this year and was charged with sending a message to a person who posted on Twitter.
On Tuesday, Justice Anne Baker said the porn Star was found guilty by a jury on one count of sending a “gross or offensive” tweet and one count each of making an obscene communication, making a “glorious” communication, and communicating a message likely to outrage a child.
Judge Baker said JadeLeos Twitter account was not authorised for any purpose, nor did it contain any content that could be construed as “gross”.
Jared Lee (@jaredleobjared) October 29, 2018″I do not accept that the purpose of the tweets was to cause offence, to offend, or to provoke others,” she told the court.
“This was an act of humour, of satire, of humour in general, and of satire in particular.”
The judge also said that while the porn actor was not known to the court, she had previously expressed her support for Donald Trump, who was a close ally of the court and who has been criticised by legal experts for his treatment of the media.
She said Jade Leo was not in breach of the Sex Offences Act but had not been convicted of a separate offence, the dissemination of obscene material.
Justice Baker told JadeLeobs lawyers she would consider an application for a non-bailable warrant to monitor her tweets and for her to be banned from contacting the public.
But she did not give a date for her bail hearing.
