The Iranian authorities struck again, arresting an 18-year-old woman for a supposedly provocative dance she videoed and posted to social media.
Maedeh Hojabri became something of an internet star in recent months dancing her way into people’s hearts the world over.
In what appeared to be a coerced confession on July 6, Hojabri reportedly said she only produced the video to gain more internet followers.
Here’s the supposedly ‘provocative’ video that is unacceptable to Iranian authorities, including her apparent confession:
This women was arrested in the Islamic Republic of Iran & forced to confess on state tv that she regrets recording & uploading her dancing videos.That’s what #ShariaLaw means for people’s daily life. It ruins lives of people & a whole county.#MaedehHojabri#DanceOfFreedom pic.twitter.com/8SXMBXa3Q2
