Kangana Ranaut is a strong advocate for politics, the environment, films, and feminism, among other issues. Her opinions polarise netizens, and her tweet demanding President’s Rule in West Bengal last night may have ignited a fire that prompted the social media site to take this action.
Ranaut allegedly tweeted about the horrific violence that has erupted in many small districts across the state and made an explosive remark about Modi resuming his “Virat roop from the early 2000s…” to put an end to the violence. This provocative tweet sparked outrage on social media, with people questioning Kangana about the early 2000s roop she was referring to.
“We’ve been clear that we’ll take strong compliance action on behaviour that has the potential to lead to offline harm,” a Twitter spokesperson said. For persistent breaches of Twitter Rules, specifically our Hateful Conduct and Abusive Behaviour policies, the referenced account has been permanently suspended. For anyone on our s, we apply the Twitter Rules judiciously and fairly.
This isn’t the first time Kangana has received a Twitter reprimand. When she made a tweet about the web series Tandav and said, ‘Time to take heads off,’ her account was subjected to some restrictions.
