is focused on Kim Kardashian working for or with Instagram as part of a greater plot for some level of world domination to corrupt women with “aspirational photos depicting a lifestyle at odds with Islam.” Kim Kardashian’s ethnic background as a woman of Armenian descent seems to be a particular concern, as Armenia shares a border with Iran.

Kardashian’s status as the most famous Armenian woman in the world also concerns Iran.
