Twitter on Tuesday said it has permanently suspended the account of Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut for repeatedly violating the platform’s rules.
“We’ve been clear that we will take strong enforcement action on behaviour that has the potential to lead to offline harm. The referenced account has been permanently suspended for repeated violations of Twitter Rules specifically our Hateful Conduct policy and Abusive Behaviour policy,” a Twitter spokesperson said.
In her recent tweets, the ‘Queen’ star demanded President’s rule in West Bengal after Mamata Banerjee-led TMC defeated BJP in the recent elections in the state. Taking to her Twitter handle, the National Award-winning actor used demeaning words against Mamata.
In a series of controversial tweets, Kangana also called her an “unleashed monster”.
From calling out on nepotism, farmer protests to people asking for oxygen due to the COVID-19 crisis, she was involved in all the recent controversies.
Reacting upon the same, Kangana in an official statement, said, “Twitter has only proved my point they are 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, fortunately, I have many platforms I can use to raise my voice including my own art in the form of cinema 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.”
Few minutes after the news of her account suspension broke; she took to her Instagram handle and shared an emotional video message, calling the move “death of democracy”.
