Move comes two days after Kangana Ranaut slammed singer Rihanna's post on Indian farmers' protest.

Micro-blogging site Twitter has taken strict action against Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut and has deleted her tweets over violation of rules.

Some of Kangana’s posts reportedly contained 'hate speeches'. Two of the tweets have been pulled down since Thursday morning.

“We have taken action on Tweets that were in violation of the Twitter Rules in line with our range of enforcement options,” Twitter said in a statement.

This move comes a day after the actress blasted American singer Rihanna over her posts supporting the ongoing farmers’ protests in India.

Several of the actor’s tweets have also been suspended in the past.

On Wednesay, Manjit Singh GK, former President of Delhi Sikh Gurudwara Management Committee (DSGMC) had sent a legal notice to Twitter asking to take down actor Kangana Ranaut’s ‘defamatory tweet’ against the Sikh Community, according to an ANI report.

He complained about “maligning and tarnishing” the image of farmers and the entire Sikh community.

The legal notice further added that Kangana Ranaut was using her ‘fan following’ to try and defame the farmers and the Sikh community associated with Farmers’ protest and has “declared them anti-national by claiming them to be terrorists who are trying to weaken the strength and protection the country so that outsider can nation and that the farmers are protesting to divide the country.”
