Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut’s Twitter account got permanently suspended for allegedly violating the rules of the micro-blogging platform.
The move was taken by Twitter after Kangana urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to “tame” Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee by showing his “Virat Roop” from the “early 2000s while reacting to a tweet by journalist-politician Swapan Dasgupta on the post-election violence in Bengal on Sunday.
The actor had demanded President rule in West Bengal after TMC won the recent assembly elections.
A Twitter spokesperson confirmed and said, "We have taken action on tweets that were in violation of the Twitter Rules in line with our range of enforcement options."
Responding to the concerned move by the micro-blogging site, Kangana said, “Twitter has only proved my point they're Americans & by birth, a white person feels entitled to enslave a brown person, they want to tell you what to think, speak or do. I have many platforms I can use to raise my voice, including my own art in the form of cinema.”
The actor also took to Instagram to rant about the incidents that took place in Bengal.
Earlier, Kangana was criticized for her ‘insensitive remarks’ on the oxygen crisis in India. She said that people using oxygen cylinders amid coronavirus should “return” their share back to nature.
“Everybody is building more and more oxygen plants, getting tons and tons of oxygen cylinders, how are we compensating for all the oxygen that we are forcefully drawing from the environment? It seems we learnt nothing from our mistakes and catastrophes they cause #PlantTrees," she tweeted.
It may be mentioned that West Bengal went for polls in eight phases on March 27, April 1, 6, 10, 17, 22 and 26, respectively. The results were declared on May 2.
