Twitter Bans Indian Actress Kangana Ranaut For Hateful Post


 Twitter has permanently suspended the account of Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut for repeatedly violating its rules on hateful and abusive behaviour.

The account was suspended because of a tweet she put out on Monday on the violence in West Bengal after Mamata Banerjee’s All India Trinamool Congress won the assembly election.

Following the election, Banerjee’s party was accused of violent attacks on its defeated opponents, which it denies. In her tweet, Ranaut called Banerjee an “unleashed monster” and urged Modi to “tame her”.

“We need super gundai (hooliganism in Hindi) to kill gundai… Modi ji (a honorific) please show your Virat roop (larger-than-life form) from the early 2000s,” she posted, an apparent reference to 2002 Gujarat riots that took place when Modi was the state chief minister.

This sparked outrage among Twitter users, who asked the platform to take action against her account.
