Indian actress Kangana Ranaut's twitter account was permanently suspended her account for violating Twitter guidelines over her controversial tweet related to the post-election result violence in West Bengal.
Her tweet sparked a furore in no time and even Indian fashion designers decided to boycott Kangana Ranaut and pledged not to have any further association with her, reports the Times of India.
Designer Rimzim Dadu shared a post on her social media and wrote, "Never too late to do the right thing! We are removing all posts of past collaborations from our social channels and pledge to not engage in any future association with her (Kangana)."
"Our country needs to heal from the devastating impact of Covid-19. So many, including me, have lost loved ones. We need to ask questions about under-preparedness to tackle the second wave, and at the same time we as a country need to heal- we need to look after each other irrespective of which side of the political spectrum we stand. In that light, I just didn't feel it right that anybody, including celebrities, should remotely insinuate violence," she said.
"Violence in ant shape and form and against anybody should be condemned. Our decision to disassociate with Kangana Ranaut from any past or future collaboration is our way of saying that there shouldn't be any space for hate-mongering and violence in our country."
Delhi-based designer Anand Bhusan also took to social media to share a screenshot of her post and urged the other designers to think twice before associating with Kangana.
"My brand and me don't support any hate speech of any kind. Calling for Gujarat Riots of 2002 to happen again on Twitter by her was the lowest of the low. I do not wish to be associated with this viewpoint at all and totally condemn it," he said.
