A male model was tortured and hacked to death in Iraq — for being too pretty and wearing tight clothes, according to a report.
Karar Nushi’s mutilated body was found on the streets of Baghdad on Monday with chain marks on his hands and neck and a bullet hole in his head — and friends believe he was murdered by Islamist extremists over his snug duds, long blond hair and good looks, Iraqi News reported.
Nushi’s pals say the Institute of Fine Arts student had received anonymous death threats on social media because of his flowing, Fabio-style locks and fashion choices — and because he reportedly was preparing to participate in a male beauty pageant, the news site reports.
His friends also attributed the slaying to his friendships with female actors.
Authorities believe that several Islamist groups have murdered young Iraqis over their appearance or sexual orientation, according to Iraqi News.
Last year, ISIS militants threw a man from the top of a building in Kirkuk, Iraq, after he was accused of being gay.
