Iranian bodybuilder jailed over selfies deemed ‘nudes’
A buff female Iranian bodybuilder discovered that the mad mullahs are muscling in on her action. The bodybuilder — believed to be Shirin Nobahari — was arrested by police because her selfies were slammed as “nudes.” She has been locked away in prison because she can’t pay the fine, Mizanonline reports. Iran has strict rules on nudity and a litany of other so-called sins.
She had previously been warned about posting selfies the arbiters of taste considered “unIslamic.” With 67,000 Instagram followers, Nobahari is considered a social media star in the conservative republic. None of the photos were nudes, but not wearing a headscarf, revealing bare arms and legs are considered nudity.
“One of the female bodybuilders who recently published nude photographs on social networks has been arrested,” the government said in a terse release.
