Tehran: Instagram sensation Sahar Tabar, who had earlier posted her several distorted images resembling Hollywood actor Angelina Jolie on social media and was later arrested, has been sentenced to 10 years in jail.
The 19-year-old was arrested over social media activities in October last year. Her lawyer on Saturday said she has now been sentenced to 10 years in jail, according to The Guardian report.
She gained fame on Instagram after posting a series of images of her face altered through plastic surgery. She had altered her face through cosmetic surgery which resembled a spooky version of Jolie and was dubbed as ‘Zombie Angelina Jolie’.
In October last year, the influencer was detained over charges of “cultural crimes and social and moral corruption”, reported The National, quoting semi-official Tasnim news agency.
She was also rumoured to have undergone 50 plastic surgeries to look like Joli but most of the pictures in her posts had been heavily edited.
Earlier, Sahar said that she considered herself to be one of Angelina’s biggest fans and has said that she “would do anything” to look like her.
