‘Zombie’ Angelina Jolie reportedly arrested for blasphemy in Iran

An Iranian Instagram star known worldwide for her creepy transformation into a zombie Angelina Jolie was arrested for “encouraging youth corruption,” according to a report on Sunday.

Sahar Tabar, 22, was detained on the orders of Tehran’s guidance court, which deals with “cultural crimes and social and moral corruption,” according to Agence France-Presse.

She faces charges of blasphemy, inciting violence, gaining income through inappropriate means, and encouraging youths to corruption.

The young woman shot to fame in 2017 after claiming that she’d had “50 surgeries” to look like her favorite Hollywood star — and posting selfies showing her hollow cheeks, inflated lips and cartoonish upturned nose.

She later revealed the shocking, emaciated look was actually created with the help of makeup and digital editing.

Last year, she shared images with her tens of thousands of followers showing what she actually looks like.

The social media celebrity was arrested after members of the public made complaints about her, the Tasnim news agency reported.

Her arrest is the latest in a series of crackdowns on, mostly female, Instagram users in Iran.

Instagram is the only social media app available in Iran, with Facebook and Twitter banned.
