The young woman shot to fame in 2017 after claiming that she’d had “50 surgeries” to look like her favorite Hollywood star — and posting selfies showing her hollow cheeks, inflated lips and cartoonish upturned nose.
Her arrest is just the latest in a new crackdown done by the Iranian regime against female Instagram users.
