Instagram star 'Zombie Angelina Jolie' jailed for 10 years in Iran

An Instagram influencer who used makeup and editing to make her face look like a ‘Zombie Angelina Jolie’ has been jailed in Iran. Sahar Tabar, whose real name is Fatemeh Khishvand, racked up hundreds of thousands of followers after photos of her resembling a ‘zombie version’ of the film star went viral. Many saw the stunt as a joke or as social commentary but on October 5 2019, Tabar was arrested in Iran, along with three other female Instagram influencers. Iranian Journalist Masih Alinejad told MailOnline that she has spoken to Tabar’s lawyer, who confirmed she had been sentenced to 10 years in prison this week for ‘promoting public corruption’.
