Here Is The Latest Update About Iran Arrests 17 Pranksters Over Social Media Videos

Social Media Videos Updates: Iranian police say they have detained 17 persons suspected of shooting candid camera pranks that enhanced their social media followings while also causing terror in Tehran’s streets.

On January 26, Tehran police commander General Hossein Rahimi informed the state-run Iran daily that those arrested “enjoyed themselves by playing on people’s nerves and the public’s peace and security by capturing candid camera footage of horror gags on the streets of the city.”

In recent weeks in Tehran, men have thrown eggs at pedestrians and smashed cakes in the faces of bystanders on subway escalators. Actors posing as private taxi drivers have opened fire on passengers with paintball guns. Thousands of people have seen the hoax videos that have been spreading on Iranian social media.

Some of the prank victims appear afraid or furious in the films. One was spotted following the laughing pranksters and tossing a shoe at them before attempting to beat up one of the men after being hit with a pie on an escalator.

“I just wanted to make people happy and also boost my Instagram followers,” the cake-throwing prankster, an information technology graduate named by his first name, Shahab, told the Iranian newspaper. He told the newspaper that after each prank, he paid the victims $20, did their clothes, and asked permission to post the recordings on social media.

Colonel Davoud Moazzami, the chief of Tehran’s cyberpolice, was outraged by the recordings, claiming that “all 17 of those arrested had acquired university educations and worked for reputable companies.”

“They shot these candid camera videos to gain followers and promote themselves on Instagram and Twitter,” Moazzami explained. Iran’s hardline rulers maintain tight Internet surveillance and restrict access to social media sites like YouTube and Twitter.

“They shot these candid camera videos to gain followers and promote themselves on Instagram and Twitter,” Moazzami explained. Iran’s hardline rulers maintain tight Internet surveillance and restrict access to social media sites like YouTube and Twitter. They’ve also taken action against what they consider to be un-Islamic and immoral Internet conduct.

Six men and women were arrested in 2014 after dancing to Pharrell Williams’ Happy in a YouTube video. They were eventually sentenced to serve time in prison with a suspension of their sentences. To get around government internet restrictions, many Iranians use virtual private networks and proxies.

TEHRAN – In recent weeks, men on metro escalators in Tehran have smashed cream pies into the faces of innocent passersby. Using red paint guns, actors impersonating private cab drivers opened fire on people. Unwitting passersby have been pelted with eggs by young people. The Iranian authorities aren’t having fun with the torrent of prank videos shot on the streets of Tehran and circulating on Iranian social media.
