A teen in Iran was arrested for dancing to Western songs — including a Justin Bieber tune and a rap number — in videos on social media, according to reports.
Maedeh Hojabri, an 18-year-old gymnast, posted clips on Instagram that showed her swaying in her bedroom in various outfits, The Guardian reported.
Hojabri had posted about 300 videos to her nearly 600,000 followers, many that showed her dancing, sometimes in midriff-baring tops and tight jeans, without a hijab, which is required in public.
But on Friday, state TV broadcast a video of the teen, crying and shaking, with her face blurred as she appeared to confess to breaking moral norms — while insisting that she was just trying to gain more followers.
