ANAND BHUSHAN AND RIMZIM DADU BAN KANGANA RANAUT
Anand Bhushan took to Twitter to post his statement that said, “In view of certain events today, we have taken a decision to remove all collaboration images with Kangana Ranaut from our social media channels. We also pledge never to be associated with her in any capacity in the future. We as a brand do not support hate speech (sic).”
He posted his statement with the caption, “Do the right thing (sic).”
See the tweet:
Fashion designer Rimzim Dadu took to her Instagram stories to share a note with a picture of herself and Kangana. She wrote, “Never too late to do the right thing! We are removing all posts of past collaboration with Kangana Ranaut from our social channels and pledge to not engage in any future association with her (sic).”
Take a look at her post:
Bollywood star Swara Bhasker appreciated the two designers for “calling out hate speech”. She shared the screenshots of their statement with the caption, “Pleasantly surprised to see this! Kudos to you @AnandBhushan & #RimzimDadu for calling out hate speech and incitement to genocide in a direct manner! Stand tall you guys! (sic).”
The designers’ decision comes after Twitter permanently suspended Kangana Ranaut’s account for violating the guidelines of the micro-blogging site. In a series of tweets, the actress had made objectionable comments on West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee. The actress was criticising Mamata Banerjee for the alleged violence that took place in the state following the announcement of State Assembly Election results on Sunday (May 2).
Kangana had demanded ‘President’s rule in West Bengal’ after Mamata Banerjee-led Trinamool Congress (TMC) won the recent assembly elections in the state and there were reports of violence in Bengal.
