Dolly Leigh, 25 year old adult actress and avid gamer, is no stranger to the spotlight – having been in the industry for a few years, she’s had her share of screen time.
So she’s used to putting herself out there and fans are accustomed to seeing all angles of her.

The responses spanned the gamut between amused and trollish.

Dolly was having none of this negativity, though, and voiced that she wanted to see more Asian men in porn in the future.
