Iranian TV Channel Photoshops Clothes on Charlize Theron at the Oscars

Censors thought that her dress was too revealing.

When broadcasting the Academy Awards ceremony, the state media of Iran photoshopped extra clothes on the body of American actress Charlize Theron, who was on stage to announce the winner in the Best Foreign Language Film category. According to The Mirror, censors thought that her dress was too revealing.

The award went to the movie called The Salesman by an Iranian director Asghar Farhadi. He did not attend the ceremony to express his protest against the politics of the US President Donald Trump on limiting the access of people from certain countries, including Iran, into the United States.

Iranian American astronaut Anousheh Ansari was on stage to accept the award on behalf of Farhadi. Iranian censors deemed her clothes too revealing as well, so they blurred the the exposed part of her shoulder.
