Earlier this month, 59-year-old Sam Sotoodeh and 25-year-old Barzeen Soroudi interrupted the star-studded competition to criticize the athlete for lying about getting robbed at gunpoint during the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.
Both Sam and Barzeen are being slapped with two misdemeanors, including leaving a spectator area and entering upon a stage, and interfering with a performance.
The men are slated to be arraigned on October 4. If they’re found guilty, the demonstrators could spend up to six months in jail AND have to cough up a $1,000 fine.
Oof. Seems a little steep, considering they were peacefully protesting. But what do U think?! SOUND OFF in the comments!
