Kangana Ranaut is one celebrity that you can either love or hate, but you definitely can’t ignore her. In recent times, Kangana has made a lot of controversial statements over Twitter that have upset many.
But recently, when she made insensitive and out-of-line comments regarding the West Bengal government, her Twitter account got permanently suspended, as stated by NDTV.
In the disturbing 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. Her not-so-subtle violence-inducing references were quite disturbing and shocking. She was reacting to a tweet by journalist-BJP leader Swapan Dasgupta on the violence in Bengal since election results were announced on Sunday.
As per various sources, Mamata Banerjee’s Trinamool Congress, which won a landslide victory, and the BJP have blamed each other for the clashes and arson.
But, this isn’t the first time Twitter censored Kangana’s tweet. Even, earlier her tweets were deleted from the social media site. But an act of this nature has been taken for the first time. A few days ago, Kangana was in news for suggesting that people plant more trees in order to compensate for the oxygen ‘forcefully’ being taken for Covid treatment.
Responding to Twitter suspending her account, Kangana posted a video on Instagram and termed the move “death of democracy” with hashtags ‘Bengal Burning’ and ‘Bengal Violence’. She further said in an official statement,
“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 their is no end to the suffering..”
Last year, a writ petition was filed in the Bombay High Court that sought suspension of her Twitter account for “spreading continuous hatred, disharmony in the country and attempting to divide the country with her extremist tweets,” reported a website.
