Twitter deletes Kangana Ranaut’s tweets over rule violations
A day after Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut attacked international pop singer Rihanna over her recent post on the farmer protests, Twitter on Thursday removed two tweets of the actor. The ‘Queen’ actress has been criticising protesting farmers over their agitations against the Centre’s three farm laws.
“We have taken action on Tweets that were in violation of the Twitter Rules in line with our range of enforcement options,” Twitter said in its statement.
Actress in her post called Rihanna a ‘fool’, ‘porn singer’ and a ‘porn star’.
While responding to Rihanna’s tweet, Kangana tweeted: “No one is talking about it because they are not farmers they are terrorists who are trying to divide India, so that China can take over our vulnerable broken nation and make it a Chinese colony much like USA… Sit down you fool, we are not selling our nation like you dummies.”
Actor Sanjay Khan’s daughter, jewellery designer Farah Khan Ali, feels let down by the near-identical ‘India against propaganda’ tweets by Bollywood celebrities on the farmers’ protest. She took to Twitter to express her disappointment and reminded everyone of the distinction between ‘reel-life heroes’ and ‘real-life heroes’.
Disappointed with the fraternity tweeting identical tweets that make it more like a marketing gimmick. Whatever their reasons & I’m no one to judge at least u could have tried to make it more original. Now you have given yourselves away. Reel Life Heroes VS Real Life Heroes ?— Farah Khan (@FarahKhanAli) February 4, 2021
On Wednesday, a host of Bollywood celebrities, including Akshay Kumar, Ajay Devgn, Karan Johar, Ekta Kapoor and Suniel Shetty, put out similar statements about the ongoing farmers’ protest with the hashtag ‘India against propaganda’.
Actor Taapsee Pannu also took an indirect dig at the tweets. “If one tweet rattles your unity, one joke rattles your faith or one show rattles your religious belief then it’s you who has to work on strengthening your value system not become ‘propaganda teacher’ for others,” she wrote on Twitter.
