Furious Iran photoshops Michelle Obama’s dress as it decries First Lady’s presentation of Argo Oscar
Michelle Obama’s virtual appearance at the Oscars has angered not just conservative critics but one of America’s greatest foes — Iran.
Last year Iran celebrated its first Oscar for the film A Separation. But this year, the country’s media decried the choice of Argo for Best Picture and director Ben Affleck’s comment in his acceptance speech that people in Iran are living in “terrible circumstances.”
It didn’t help that the First Lady opened the envelope.
“In a rare occasion in Oscar history, the First Lady announced the winner for Best Picture for the anti-Iran Film Argo, which is produced by the Zionist company Warner Bros,” Fars News said, revealing what they really think about the powers that be in Washington and Hollywood.
