Actor Kangana Ranaut's Twitter account was permanently suspended on Tuesday after the actress made a series of tweets on Twitter commenting on the alleged political violence in Bengal. Earlier on Tuesday, the actress had reportedly urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to 'tame' Mamata Banerjee with his 'Virat Roop' from 'early 2000s' in Bengal. The Tweet sparked outrage and in return Twitter India took action by permanently suspending her account. The Manikarnika actress later took to Instagram and posted a video with teary eyes where she is seen speaking about the "disturbing news, videos and photos from Bengal of people being murdered, gang-raped and their houses being burnt". Much of these allegations are yet to be verified. She also called for President's Rule in the state, criticizing a "government that I support" for not doing more than dharnas in response to the clashes.
Actor Kangana Ranaut has been making headlines for a long time for her controversial tweets on Twitter. Ranaut joined the micro-blogging site last year in August 2020, and posted a video in which she said, “I have seen how the entire world came together to fight for Sushant Singh Rajput and have won. So, this makes me feel positive about its power to bring the reforms we want for a new India. So, this is why I have joined social media. I need your support in this journey, and I am looking forward to this journey to build new relationships.”
Ranaut has always entangled herself in a lot of controversies since her debut on Twitter. Her tweets have always received mixed reactions from the netizens on Twitter. Kangana's stint on Twitter has not been an easy one. Earlier this year in February, Twitter India removed three of her Tweets all related to the farmer protests and tweets by international celebrities. Later, Twitter in an official statement said "We have taken action on Tweets that violated the Twitter Rules in line with our range of enforcement options,". However, on Tuesday, Kangana's Twitter account was suspended permanently.
