Instagram account of Tehran's young elite showing off their wealth banned
October 10 , 2014
The Iranian government has blocked an Instagram account dedicated to showcasing the wealth and lifestyle of Tehran’s young rich elite, media reports say.
Richkidsoftehran attracted about 100,000 followers since it was set up in September. Contributors on the photo-sharing service said they wanted to present a different image of Iran.
The photos featured expensive cars, luxury watches and upmarket homes, and a culture of parties. The site was banned for its “vulgar” content.
Another site called poorkidsoftehran was created to poke fun at the rich kids.
