Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut’s Twitter account permanently suspended after her insensitive comments regarding the West Bengal assembly election result. The actress posted a series of tweets on the platform reading the violence that took place in the Bengal post assembly election result.
She urged PM Narendra Modi to “tame” Mamata Banerjee with his “Virat Roop” from “early 2000s” in Bengal reacting to a tweet by journalist-politician Swapan Dasgupta on the violence after assembly election results in the state. Further, she tweeted urging presidential rule in West Bengal after Mamata Banerjee-led Trinamool Congress (TMC) won.
A Twitter spokesperson said, “We’ve been clear that we will take strong enforcement action on behaviour that has the potential to lead to offline harm. The referenced account has been permanently suspended for repeated violations of Twitter Rules specifically our Hateful Conduct policy and Abusive Behaviour policy.”
“As explained in our abusive behaviour policy, you may not engage in the targeted harassment of someone, or incite other people to do so. We consider abusive behaviour an attempt to harass, intimidate, or silence someone else’s voice”, he further added. He also said that Twitter enforces rules prudently and fairly for everyone on their service.
In retaliation, Kangana tagged Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey in a tweet, “My account and my virtual identity might get martyred for the country anytime.
Notably, Kangana Ranaut is known for her controversial post on Twitter. Recently her obtuse tweet on the establishment of medical oxygen plants has made the netizens outrageous. Earlier this year she posted a provocative tweet against Amazon Prime Video series Tandav. After that tweet, certain restrictions were imposed on her account.
