Kangana Ranaut's Twitter account suspended

Actor Kangana Ranaut's Twitter account has been suspended after a series of controversial tweets. The account was suspended on Tuesday, after she posted a series of tweets in reaction to the recent West Bengal election results. According to Twitter, she has been found to repeatedly violate the platform's rules.

In the tweet that appears to have spurred this action, the actor seems to urge Prime Minister Narendra Modi to "tame" Mamata Banerjee using his "Virat Roop" from "early 2000s" in Bengal. She was reacting to a tweet by journalist-politician Swapan Dasgupta on the violence in Bengal after election results on Sunday. The tweet sparked outrage and calls for action against the actor.

While Kangana's Twitter account stands suspended, the actress took to her Instagram handle to share a video on how the violence has left her distressed and beyond words. Her instagram post reads, "Important message for our government #BengalBurning #bengalviolence".

This isn't the first time that the actor has been penalised by the social media platform. Earlier this year, certain restrictions were imposed on her account after she posted an incendiary tweet against Amazon Prime Video series Tandav.
