Charlize Theron’s Oscars dress badly blurred out on Iranian TV #CAPnews

Charlize Theron’s Oscars gown was blurred out on an Iranian TV channel. Theron, 41, joined Shirley MacLaine on stage in a metallic lamé gown by Dior which showed her bare arms at Sunday night’s ceremony to present the Best Foreign Language Film – but her choice of outfit proved problematic.

The Iranian Labor News Agency gave the actress a ‘turtleneck’ and covered her arms with long black ‘sleeves’ with what looked like the black spray paint tool from MS Paint.
At one point the ‘black clothing’ unattached itself from Theron as she read out the nominees.

When the camera later returned to Theron the black was swapped out for a blurred box across her chest and shoulders.

Anousheh Ansari also fell victim to censors as she accepted the award on behalf of Asghar Farhadi – boycotted the ceremony over President Donald Trump’s travel ban – for The Salesman.
Ansari’s navy gown featured a nude cut out at the top which was blurred as she took to the stage.

My Stealthy Freedom – an online social movement that argues wearing a hijab in public should be a personal choice – shared the clip and branded the censorship “shameful”.

Writing on Facebook they posted: “Another typical example of the Islamic Republic’s fear of naked arms of Iranian women. It is shameful indeed, but that is how the Iranian media outlets based within the country have been covering such events for years.

“At a time when Farhadi chooses an astronaut and NASA scientist to prove a point about human rights not having ‘borders’, the Islamic Republic of Iran does the complete opposite by using Farhadi's wonderful Oscars statement for their own propaganda while blind to the meaning of his point.”
