Reality TV megastar, social media powerhouse, household brand, yes, those are all descriptions applied to the star that the government of Iran has just declared a “secret agent”.
Iran’s Organized Cyberspace Crimes Unit and the Revolutionary Guard have declared Kim Kardashian an American secret agent whose job is to promote a lifestyle at odds with Islam and to corrupt the country’s youth with her Instagram and social media postings.
Mostafa Alizadeh, a spokesman for the Organized Cyberspace Crimes Unit said, “Ms. Kim Kardashian is a popular fashion model so Instagram’s CEO tells her, ‘Make this native.’ There is no doubt that financial support is involved as well.”
“They are targeting young people and women. Foreigners are behind it because it is targeting families. These schemes originate from around the Persian Gulf and England. When you draw the operational graph, you will see that it is a foreign operation.”
Let’s look at a few ways Kim is fulfilling her role as a secret agent, shall we?

The declaration comes on the heels of the Revolutionary Guard arresting several high profile Iranian fashion models for posting photos without traditional Islamic apparel.
According to Wikipedia, whereas the regular military (artesh) defends Iran’s borders and maintains internal order, according to the Iranian constitution, the Revolutionary Guard (pasdaran) is intended to protect the country’s Islamic system. The Revolutionary Guards state that their role in protecting the Islamic system is preventing foreign interference as well as coups by the military or “deviant movements”.
