Twitter on Thursday suspended actor Kangana Ranaut’s sister and manager Rangoli Chandel’s account after she posted a tweet demanding that ‘mullas’ and ‘secular media’ be made to ‘stand in a line’ and be killed.
Chandel’s tweet was posted on Wednesday. Several Twitter uses reported the tweet as hate speech and demanded that Chandel’s verified account be suspended.
Jewellery designer Farah Khan, who said the tweet was ‘shocking beyond belief’, demanded an FIR be registered.
Soon after, Chandel replied to the tweet with another controversial tweet.
Following the complaints, Twitter took action and suspended the verified account which had over 95,000 followers.
This isn’t the first time that Chandel has triggered a controversy with her tweets.
Earlier this week, she called for suspending the 2024 Lok Sabha election given the economic crisis India is facing during the pandemic.
Last week, she claimed she received a warning from Twitter. Following this, she called the social networking site ‘anti-national’ and said the platform would ‘go to graveyard’ if they suspended her account.
