Twitter bans Indian actress for violating hate and abuse rules – Reuters

Twitter Inc (TWTR.N) on Tuesday stated it has actually banned leading Bollywood starlet Kangana Ranaut, known for her ardent support of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, implicating her of violating its guidelines on hateful conduct and abusive behaviour.
Ranaut provided a tweet on Monday in which she prompted Modi to turn to gangster techniques to “tame” West Bengals primary Minister Mamata Banerjee, whose local party beat Modis Hindu nationalists in elections over the weekend to retain control of the state federal government in Kolkata.
Following the election, Banerjees party was accused of violent attacks on its beat challengers, which it denies.
Confirming that Ranauts account had been suspended, Twitter discussed its policy.
” Weve been clear that we will take strong enforcement action on behaviour that has the potential to lead to offline damage.
” The referenced account has been completely suspended for repeated infractions of Twitter Rules particularly our Hateful Conduct policy and Abusive Behaviour policy.”
Ranaut, a winner of numerous national movie awards, railed against Twitters action in a declaration.
“Twitter has only proven my point. They are Americans, and by birth a white person feels entitled to oppress a brown individual. They wish to tell you what to believe, speak or do, fortunately I have numerous platforms I can utilize to raise my voice, including my own art in the kind of movie theater however my heart goes out to the individuals of this country who have actually been tortured, enslaved and censored for countless years and still their is no end to the suffering,” she stated.
