Just yesterday (May 16), Mostafa Alizadeh, the spokesman for Iran’s Organized Cyberspace Crimes Unit, blamed Kim Kardashian for infiltrating the country’s internet culture as part of a “foreign operation” that promotes “un-Islamic acts” online. Iranian police arrested eight people as part of a crackdown on social media permissiveness, including models who posted photos of themselves on Instagram without headscarfs (though otherwise clothed).

It’s tough to say whether Kardashian was aware of the political implications of last night’s speech, but there’s no denying those nude selfies have power.

After her acceptance, she went straight to Cannes.
