Kangana Ranaut stirred up another controversy on Twitter when she took on international Pop-superstar Rihanna for her tweet in support of the ongoing farmers’ protests in India.
The movement that has been going strong for the past few months, received an added boost when the international superstar lent her support to the cause. Questioning the silence around the issue, the singer, actress and philanthropist, helped shed light on the issue with her 101 million Twitter followers.
“Why aren’t we talking about this?! #FarmersProtest,” she asked in her tweet.
Offering Rihanna an answer to the question, was Kangana, who said, “No one is talking about it because they are not farmers they are terrorists who are trying to divide India so that China can take over our vulnerable broken nation and make it a Chinese colony much like USA… Sit down you fool, we are not selling our nation like you dummies.”
While her reply left fans of the singer and Twitterati stunned, a screenshot of Kangana’s old post, fangirling over RiRi’s song ‘Diamonds’ went viral.

“Alexa, play ‘Diamonds’ by Rihanna,” read Kangana’s tweet from May 2019 that had her commenting on a post about her Cannes red carpet appearance.
Reacting to the viral post, Kangana claimed that she didn’t ‘understand pop music’ nor does she listen to a lot of English songs.
“Oye tattu I took over my account in August last year before that it was a team fan page, mujhe na pop music samajh aata hai nahi main English gaane zyaada sunti hoon. Soja aab ho gaya tera … (I took over my account in August last year before that it was a team fan page, I neither understand pop music nor listen to too many English songs. Go to sleep now, you are done now.)

A host of Indian celebrities including Richa Chadha, filmmaker Hansal Mehta, Diljit Dosanjh, You Tuber Lilly Singh hailed Rihanna for shedding light on the protest.
