MUMBAI Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut’s Twitter account was “completely suspended” on Tuesday for violating insurance policies on hateful conduct and abusive behaviour, the social media large stated.
The award-winning star of 2014’s Queen and 2015’s Tanu Weds Manu Returns has attracted controversy over her outspoken social media presence and frequent spats with fellow actors and film-makers.
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 develop into a “tremendous gundai” (tremendous thug) in his battle in opposition to her.
Mr Modi’s ruling Bharatiya Janata Get together just lately suffered an electoral drubbing by the hands of Ms Banerjee in West Bengal state.
Ranaut, 34, reacted to the suspension on Instagram, writing: “That is the secular India they wish to promote you, the place Hindus and their voices getting butchered.”
In February, Ranaut attacked pop star 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. – AFP
