Twitter suspends actor Kangana Ranaut’s account after her reference to 2002 Gujarat violence

- Advertisment -

Twitter permanently removed the account of Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut on Tuesday after her contentious tweet related to the post-election violence in Bengal.

In a series of incendiary tweets, the actor commented on the victory of the Mamta Banerjee led Trinamool Congress (TMC) for the third consecutive term in West Bengal.

In one of the tweets she urged Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi to “tame” Mamata Banerjee using his “Virat Roop” from “early 2000s” in Bengal. This was an indirect reference to the 2002 Gujrat riots.

Responding to the suspension, Kangana told ANI, “Twitter has only proved my point they’re Americans and by birth, a white person feels entitled to enslave a brown person, they want to tell you what to think, speak or do. I have many platforms I can use to raise my voice, including my own art in the form of cinema.” She went on to add, “But my heart goes out to the people of this nation who have been tortured, enslaved, and censored for thousands of years, and still, there is no end to the suffering.”

Commenting on the development, a Twitter spokesperson said Kangana’s account has been suspended for repeated violations, “We’ve been clear that we will take strong enforcement action on behavior that has the potential to lead to offline harm.

Netizens are reacting to Kangana’s permanent suspension from Twitter, it has sparked a meme fest online.

Earlier, Kangana’s account was restricted for a few hours this year after the actor’s provocative tweets against the web series Tandav. The tweet was deleted later.
