Iranians Arrested for ‘Happy’ Tribute Video Apparently Released

21 May

A group of Iranians who were arrested on Monday for posting a YouTube video that shows them dancing to Pharrell Williams’ “Happy” have seemingly been released by authorities. Details remain unclear, including whether all six of those arrested — three men and three women not wearing hijabs in the video — were released.

Several sources inside Iran posted about the release on Wednesday. Hoda Rostami, an Iranian photographer, posted about it on her Facebook page. Siavash Taravati posted on Facebook that her sister Reihane Taravati, the video’s art director, was freed on bail.
