A Facebook group called "Those Opposed To Leyla Otadi" has already attracted more than 7,000 people as fans. The page says the Iranian government is trying to cover up Neda's death by creating a film that suggests her death was part of a scenario executed by the CIA. 

Bloggers have also been criticizing Otadi for accepting the role of Neda and working with "the murderers of Iranian citizens" and of ignoring "the blood that was spilled" last year during the postelection crackdown.
