US porn star Alexis Texas sparks fury in Tehran after stripping off in Iranian music video & hardliners want her banned

PORN star Alexis Texas has sparked fury in Tehran after stripping off her clothes in an Iranian music video - prompting hardliners to want her banned.

Iranian pop star Sasan Yafteh - who goes by the stage name Sasy - revealed a teaser clip of his new music video featuring American porn actress Alexis Texas earlier this week.

In the music video, the 35-year-old pornstar is seen dancing and removing her clothing, including her white headscarf, as she danced with the 32-year-old singer.

After removing her outer layer of clothing, Alexis Texas donned a seemingly silky black dress with straps.

Despite there being no explicit sex or nudity in the video, the footage was deemed controversial.

Earlier this week, Iranian media revealed the music video was shared to an Iranian entertainment app - sparking an investigation among authorities.

The semiofficial ISNA news agency reported on Wednesday that the Iranian Rubika application under investigation after a clip of the "Tehran Tokyo" music video was published.

A clip of the music video was shared to Sasy's Instagram a few days ago and the post has already amassed more than 15.2million views.

Iranians have denounced the Rubika app's distribution of the footage as they feel it will negatively impact young people.

However, the music video wasn't filmed in Iran as Sasy is based in California.

Prior to leaving Iran in 2009 and making his way into the US, Sasy worked as an underground singer.

In Iran, Sasy's videos are not authorized, however, social media users have shared them regardless.

Websites like YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Telegram, and other social media platforms have been blocked by the Iranian government.

Any foreign-made music needs permission, as per Iranian law.

Hardliners think social media outlets are a part of a "soft war" between the West and the Islamic Republic.

According to IranIntl, journalist Emily Amraee expressed her dismay in the music video.

She reportedly wrote to Twitter: "A shiver runs through my back when I think children will find out [Alexis Texas] is a porn star and start searching for her [on the internet]."

"Because of [the state filtering] all of them have access to anti-filtering software and parenting control software are not available here," Amraee added. "This song is really more dangerous than polio."

The news outlet also revealed the Iranian AudioVisual Media Regulatory Authority banned the video clip on Tuesday.

Rubika was also sued for publishing the clip as Alexia Texas is a pornstar and porn actresses violate the rights of children, the report explained.
