Actress Kangana Ranaut’s sister Rangoli Chandel is once again in hot water for a post on Twitter. Her account on the micro-blogging website now stands suspended, though a snapshot of her original tweet that kicked off the controversy is still doing the rounds online.
Rangoli reportedly posted what is being considered as hate tweets aimed at a community from her blue tick handle, @Rangoli_, which prompted the suspension of account. This post follows Rangoli’s history of sharing tweets that have been widely criticised for inciting hate.

Following the tweet that led to Rangoli’s account being suspended, filmmaker Reema Kagti wrote to Mumbai Police demanding action. “@MumbaiPolice. Could you please look into this and take action? Isn’t this spreading fake news AND inciting hatred & violence against certain people?” wrote @kagtireema.
I’ve blocked Rangoli and reported her to twitter.
But @MumbaiPolice @CMOMaharashtra @OfficeofUT This kind of hate mongering is irresponsible. Please look into it, and take necessary actions. https://t.co/WywccuZvKR
