International pop sensation Rihanna took to her Twitter handle in order to extend her support to the ongoing farmers protest. She posted a screenshot of an article that spoke of internet supply being cut off during farmers protest.
The screenshot was of an article on Farmers protest. It said that during the farmers protest in Delhi, internet supply was restricted. Rihanna tweeted the picture along with a caption reading, “why aren’t we talking about this?! #FarmersProtest.”
With Rihanna’s tweet, the farmers' protest has gone global and will gain more attention as the pop star has over 100 million followers on Twitter. Several other international names came forward to stand in solidarity with the farmers who are currently protesting against the three farm laws.
Reacting to Rihanna’s tweet was Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut. The Queen actress slashed at Rihanna and called her a ‘fool.’ She further said that the farmers are actually ‘terrorists.’
Kangana’s tweet read, “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 the USA. Sit down you fool, we are not selling our nation, like you dummies.”

Kangana said that the ones protesting are not farmers but terrorists. They are here to divide India. She also spoke on the India-China border issues and said all this is nothing but a strategy to take over our country that is in a vulnerable state as of now.
Kangana even called Rihanna a left wing role model. She shared her and Rihanna’s picture. “Right Wing role model VS Left Wing role model. I rest my case,” tweeted Kangana.
This is not the first time that the ‘Tanu weds Manu’ actress has lashed out at someone. Kangana has shown support to the central government while openly speaking about her dislike towards farmers' protest.
What is it about?
