From calling international pop icon Rihanna a ‘fool’ and a ‘porn star’ to categorising and branding Taapsee Pannu as ‘B-grade person’, ‘dumbo’ and a ‘freeloader’, Kangana Ranaut has been all over the news for her controversial comments on social media. And now, the ‘Manikarnika’ star has said that there is no one better than her to “lead” among the many fools on social media and has asked netizens to ‘bow down to the Queen”.
Kangana’s latest statement came in response to a Twitter user who asked what her political and academic credentials were to comment on any every topic? The user, Harish Chandra Meena, Former DGP, Ex-MP Dausa Rajasthan, MLA Deoli-Uniara, further said in his tweet, “is she just a pawn in the social media power-play?”
Harish’s tweet read, “Am intrigued to know, what competence does @KanganaTeam have to comment on every topic, or is she just a pawn, in social media power play. Would like to know her academic/political credentials (sic).”
To this, Kangana replied, “My credentials …. ha ha I truly believe I am an average human being but among so many fools here on social media I am the best person to lead … so bow down to your Queen. Kangana followed up the tweet with with a crown emoji alongside the word ‘Queen’.
For the unversed, Kangana was the lead in Vikas Bahl directed 2013 blockbuster film ‘Queen’ after which she was often addressed as ‘the Queen’ by audiences and in several media reports.
Meanwhile, on Thursday, some of the tweets by actress Kangana Ranaut were deleted by the microblogging site, Twitter, which stated that the posts were in violation of their rules.
The move by the digital platform comes after the actress went on a rant against international pop sensation Rihanna for supporting the ongoing farmers protest. Kangana called Rihanna a porn singer, a “porn star”, and a Left Wing role model.aThe two tweets, which were deleted, were related to the farmer protests.
Soon after, Twitter sent out a statement opening up about their move.
“We have taken action on Tweets that were in violation of the Twitter Rules in line with our range of enforcement options,” said a Twitter spokesperson.
One tweet, considered derogatory and pulled down by the platform, was one where she referred to several Indian cricketers as “Dhobi ka Kutta”. The other one pulled down was for Bollywood actress Taapsee Pannu.
Back in January, Kangana had shared that her Twitter account had been restricted temporarily.
