Kangana Ranaut's tweets against farmers' protest deleted by Twitter over 'violation of guidelines'
New Delhi | Jagran News Desk: Two days after Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut countered global pop-star, Rihanna, over her tweets in support of the farmers' protest and called the farmer protesters 'terrorist', micro-blogging site Twitter today deleted some of her tweets and said that posts by the actress violated its rules on hate speech.
Twitter has deleted two tweets of Kangana Ranaut in the last two hours. "We have taken action on Tweets that were in violation of the Twitter Rules in line with our range of enforcement options," Twitter said in a statement.
Twitter's move came after Kangana Ranaut went into a rampage on the micro-blogging site over Rihanna's tweet in support of the ongoing farmers' protest at several Delhi borders. The Queen actress called the farmer protesters 'terrorist' in one of the tweets and said that they are trying to divide the country. Kangana Ranaut also termed Rihanna a 'fool' in her tweet.
International pop-star Rihanna on Tuesday tweeted in support of the farmers' protest and wrote, "Why aren't we talking about this?", with a hashtag "#FarmersProtest."
Apart from Rihanna, Swedish activist, Greta Thunberg, also tweeted in support of the farmers' protest and wrote, "We stand in solidarity with the #FarmersProtest in India", and shared a news article on the ongoing protest.
Thousands of farmers, mainly from Punjab and Haryana, have been camping at several Delhi border points since November last year, demanding the government to repeal the three farm laws and legal guarantee of minimum support price (MSP) for their crops.
This is not the first time when Twitter has taken action against the Queen actress. Her account was briefly suspended in the past when Kangana Ranaut called for the beheading of producers of a TV show that she believed was offensive to Hindus.
Kangana, on numerous occasions, has been quick to enter a debate, even when she isn't a part of the discussion. Kangana has been actively vocal on Twitter and doesn't shy away from making controversial comments.
