On Tuesday, Twitter permanently suspended Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut, saying she has repeatedly violated its rules on “hateful and abusive behavior.”
The 34-year-old actor’s username @KanganaTeam now displays the message: account suspended.
A Twitter spokesperson said in a statement that Ranaut’s account had been “permanently suspended for repeated violations.”
However, he did not specify the tweet (s) that triggered the action.
Ranaut, known for her often inflammatory tweets, had posted several posts following the victory of the Trinamool Congress led by Mamata Banerjee over the BJP in West Bengal and incidents of post-election violence. Calling for the president’s rule in the state, she also blamed Banerjee for the violence and called his names unpublishable.
After his account was suspended, several Bollywood celebrities took to the microblogging site to respond.
While some took subtle jibes from the “Panga” actor, others did not hesitate to rejoice.
