MUMBAI • Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut’s Twitter account was “completely suspended” on Tuesday for violating insurance policies on hateful conduct and abusive behaviour, mentioned the social media big.
Ranaut, the award-winning star of Queen (2014) and Tanu Weds Manu Returns (2015), has attracted controversy over her outspoken social media presence and frequent spats with fellow actors and film-makers.
“We have been clear that we are going to take robust enforcement motion on behaviour that has the potential to result in offline hurt,” mentioned a spokesman for Twitter.
“The referenced account has been completely suspended for repeated violations of Twitter guidelines, particularly our hateful conduct coverage and abusive behaviour coverage.”
A vociferous supporter of Hindu nationalist Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Ranaut’s most up-to-date tweet referred to his opponent Mamata Banerjee as a “monster” and urged the premier to change into a “tremendous gundai” (tremendous thug) in his struggle in opposition to her.
Mr Modi’s ruling Bharatiya Janata Occasion just lately suffered an electoral drubbing by the hands of Ms Banerjee in West Bengal state.

In February, Ranaut attacked pop famous person Rihanna for tweeting about mass protests by farmers in India, calling the singer “a idiot” and the farmers “terrorists” for opposing new agriculture legal guidelines.
