Twitter justifies the suspension of Kangana Ranaut's account: We prohibit content that wishes desire for death

Kangana Ranaut has been making headlines for all the wrong reasons. Her Twitter account was suspended temporarily for a few hours on Wednesday. This happened after a tweet of hers was deemed in violation of the guidelines provided in the microblogging site. For the unversed, Kangana had shared a tweet that is related to the ongoing controversy related to Tandav. She not only attached the makers of the show in the now-deleted tweet but also talked about ‘taking their heads off.’

It was after this that Twitter suspended her account for a few hours. Now, the site has reportedly justified its action during an interaction with NDTV. While talking to the news channel, a Twitter spokesperson says, “We take action on any account that violates the Twitter Rules. We welcome people to freely express themselves on our service, however as outlined in our Abusive Behaviour Policy, you may not engage in the targeted harassment of someone, or incite other people to do so.”

The same spokesperson further adds, “We prohibit content that wishes, hopes or expresses a desire for death, serious bodily harm against an individual or group of people and take enforcement action when we identify violations which could include placing an account in read-only mode.” Talking about Tandav, the web series helmed by Ali Abbas Zafar has been mired in controversies right from the beginning. Certain sections alleged that the political drama has hurt religious sentiments and urged a ban on it. Not only that but separate FIRs have been filed against the makers in Mumbai and Lucknow respectively.

People u all should calm down cause she didn't mean any violence. In English taking " someone's head off " means to scold someone. This is an idiom in English for gods sake. It's meaning is to scold them not to really take someone's head off lol. If u want go google it. Get educated people. She herself told this in the tweet that she used this idiom. For gods sake people don't judge a person without knowing anything. Go and google it if u think I am lying. U people are the ones who are spreading hate now. So can u boomers first see and understand the meaning and then talk.

I feel she is another Trump.... Spreading lies and encouraging people to incite violence and hatred. She talks about herself being a ardent lover of our country and yet she hasn't contributed anything for its unity rather has been instrumental in dividing factions. She thinks she is the queen after doing movies like Queen and Manikarnika and I think she is going to be a BJP politician now after doing Thalaivi. She hasn't still come out of her acting role. Kangana, just focus on what is important, that is you entertaining us .

Someone's true reaction can influence others to act on that thought. Not saying we humans are peaceful. But these evil thoughts that come to our mind, it must remain in our mind. We can give someone confidence to take action. Example, if someone is thinking I must harm the person opposing my religion, and Kangana is tweeting something supporting that thought, the person can be influenced to even kill someone. That is bad, right? I doubt any religion would encourage you to harm another human..
