Micro-blogging site Twitter has ‘permanently suspended’ Indian actress Kangana Ranaut’s Twitter account for violating the rules.
Kangana continues to grace the news due to her controversial tweets.
Kangana recently commented on the alleged violence in West Bengal following the announcement of the election results in a series of tweets.
The 34-year-old actor, unfazed, accused Twitter of race bias. “I have many platforms I can use to raise my voice, including my own art in the form of cinema,” she told news agency ANI.
In the tweet that appears to have spurred this action, the actor seems to urge Prime Minister Narendra Modi to “tame” Mamata Banerjee using his “Virat Roop” from “early 2000s” in Bengal. She was reacting to a tweet by journalist-BJP leader Swapan Dasgupta on the violence in Bengal since election results were announced on Sunday; Mamata Banerjee’s Trinamool Congress – which won a landslide victory — and the BJP have blamed each other for the clashes and arson.
Kangana Ranaut’s tweet sparked outrage and calls for action against the strident actor, whose timeline is filled with vitriolic posts.
Earlier, she was angry over India’s over-production of artificial oxygen.
On the issue of setting up artificial oxygen plants in India, the actress posted a message on the social networking site Twitter, which showed a lot of frustration.
Kangana said in her tweet that everyone is building more and more oxygen plants, oxygen cylinders are being found in tons.
The actress wrote in a questioning manner, “How can we repay all the oxygen that is being taken from the atmosphere by force.”
