An Iranian Instagram Influencer who posted her uncanny images resembling Hollywood actor Angelina Jolie has been detained on obscenity charges, according to sources.
Sahar Tabar was confined over charges of “social and moral corruption and cultural crimes”, reported the sources.
Sahar Tabar had developed her face through cosmetic surgery which resembled an ominous version of Angelina Jolie altered through plastic surgery. After Sahar Tabar posted the pictures of Instagram she immediately went viral.
“She faces charges including blasphemy, inciting violence, gaining income through inappropriate means and encouraging youths to corruption,” the source added.
Instagram is the only social media platform allowed in Iran while all other social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook are forbidden.
Sarah Tabar grew popular on Instagram last year after posting a set of images of her face reconstructed through plastic surgery. Sahar Tabar was also rumored to have experienced over 50 plastic surgeries to look like Angelina Jolie but most of the photographs in her posts had been profoundly photoshopped.
In some photographs, “She is wearing a hijab over her hair and a white bandage on her nose, commonly seen on Tehran’s streets“.
