The Iranian Instagram star Sahar Tabar, also known as “Zombie Angelina Jolie,” has been released from prison after a massive public outcry about her 10-year prison sentence. Tabar gained a following on social media with strange pictures that made her appear like a zombified version of the famous actress Angelina Jolie. While her pictures online make her appear very strange and unhealthy, her online persona is merely an illusion.
She told her followers that she had an obnoxious number of surgeries to make herself look that way. She admitted during the interview that, “what you saw on Instagram was the computer effects I used to create the image.”
“Cyberspace was an easy way. It was much easier than becoming an actor,” she was quoted as saying.Sahar Tabar
She says that after everything she has been through, she might be done with social media for good. “I’m sure I will not even put Instagram on my phone anymore, let alone have a page,” she said. Under Iran’s strict social laws, her activities are considered “promoting public corruption.” Tabar, whose real name is Fatemeh Khishvand, had been in prison for 14 months after her October 2019 arrest.
