As part of a larger crackdown on "un-Islamic" Instagram use, Iranian officials have set their sights on one Kim Kardashian. The Organized Cyberspace Crimes Unit of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corp accused her this weekend of working with Instagram to corrupt Iranian women.
On an Iranian news program Sunday night, OCCU spokesman Mostafa Alizadeh explained how Kardashian and others "target" women with photos that don't comport with the Islamic lifestyle:
"They are targeting young people and women. Foreigners are behind it because it is targeting families. These schemes originate from around the Persian Gulf and England. When you draw the operational graph, you will see that it is a foreign operation. Ms. Kim Kardashian is a popular fashion model so Instagram's CEO tells her, 'make this native.' There is no doubt that financial support is involved as well. We are taking this very seriously."
Kardashian has not commented on these accusations. Meanwhile, several women in Iran have been arrested for sharing "un-Islamic" photos on Instagram as the OCCU's social media crackdown continues. One detainee expressed remorse for her actions on live television Sunday, telling officials, "You can be certain that no man would want to marry a model whose fame has come by losing her honor."
