Days after she was sentenced to 10 years in jail, the Iranian woman dubbed as ‘Zombie Angelina Jolie’ has been released on bail.
Recall that, Fatemeh Khishvand, 19 were charged with “blasphemy, inciting violence, gaining income through inappropriate means, and encouraging youths to corruption.
She confirmed her release via Iran’s Tamsin News Agency that a judge allowed her to be released on bail.
US-based Iranian activist Masih Alinejad, who first broke the new of Tabar’s imprisonment on Twitter, said the release came after ‘massive media pressure’.
“Today Iranian teenager who posted heavily distorted images of herself online and was jailed for 10 years has been freed after massive media pressure,” Alinejad wrote, adding the hashtag “#SaharTabar was released on bail.”
In 2017, Khishvand, posted heavily distorted images of herself using heavy makeup and editing where she looked like a ‘Zombie Angelina Jolie’. It was rumoured that she has undergone dozens of surgeries in an attempt to emulate Jolie’s looks, but most of the pictures in her posts actually were heavily edited.
