A 19-year-old Iranian Instagram star who posted her spooky images resembling Hollywood actor Angelina Jolie has been sentenced to 10-years in jail.
Sahar Tabar, whose real name is Fatemeh Khishvand has been sentenced to jail for leading the youth to corruption, among other charges.
The social media star was arrested in October 2019.
Masih Alinejad, a journalist in a series of tweets wrote: “I call on Angelina Jolie to help an Iranian 19-year-old girl who received 10 years prison sentence for using makeup & Photoshop to turn herself into Angelina. Islamic Republic has a history of tormenting women. We need to be united against this gender apartheid”.
Originally Tabar was detained with blasphemy, inciting violence, gaining income through inappropriate means and encouraging youths to corruption. Later, the teenager revealed that she has been cleared of two of the charges and now the charges of corruption of young people and disrespect for the Islamic Republic stand.
Tabar altered her face through cosmetic surgery which then resembled a spooky version of Jolie and posted on Facebook-owned Instagram.
She became famous on Instagram last year after posting a series of images of her face altered through plastic surgery. It was reported that she underwent 50 surgeries to look like Angelina Jolie. However, she later revealed that it was a mix of photoshop, makeup, and surgery.
