Love her, loathe her, you cannot ignore her — certainly not on Twitter. The microblogging site has suspended Kangana Ranaut’s account on occasion, taken down her tweets and the reactionary meme fests never cease to overflow social media, but she goes on unfazed.

TWITTER THRASHER: Ranaut decided to send a tweet to Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi requesting a ban on Twitter. Writing in Hindi, the Bollywood star told the PM that he should not repeat the same mistake made by Indian warrior Prithaviraj Chauhan and that mistake was accepting an apology. She added that no matter how many times Twitter apologises, he should never forgive them. “They conspired for a civil war in India #BanTwitterInIndia.”

MERYL STREEP, GAL GADOT? BRING ‘EM ON: Ranaut decided her talents were on par with Hollywood legend Meryl Streep and ‘Wonder Woman’ star Gal Gadot. Some may call it narcissistic but Ranaut didn’t hold back as she wrote: “Massive transformation alert, The kind of range I display as a performer no other actress on this globe has that right now, I have raw talent like Meryl Streep for layered character depictions but I can also do skilled action and glamour like Gal Gadot.. “I am open for debate if anyone can show me more range and brilliance of craft than me by any other actress on this planet I promise to give up my arrogance....”

STEP ASIDE TOM CRUISE: Who can forget the time when Ranaut decided she was a bigger action star than Tom Cruise. Posting an interview of Hollywood stunt director Nick Powell, who choreographed action sequences in Braveheart, The Gladiator and the Tom Cruise-starrer The Last Samurai, she stated that even he acknowledged her action prowess. In the interview, Powell had reportedly stated Ranaut “pulled off smoother stunts than Tom Cruise” in her film, ‘Manikarnika: Queen of Jhansi’.

RIHANNA WRECKING: When international pop idol Rihanna threw her weight and celebrity behind the farmers’ protests in India with a tweet condemning the internet shutdown in protest areas along Delhi’s borders, Ranaut saw red. “Why aren’t we talking about this?! #FarmersProtest,” tweeted Rihanna, with a link to a news article about the internet ban in several border districts of Delhi. While most people on Twitter hailed the ‘Don’t Stop The Music’ singer for taking a stand and her tweet was widely-shared, Ranaut was quick to school the pop idol. “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 national and make it a Chinese colony much like USA … Sit down you fool, we are not selling our national like you dummies,” tweeted Ranaut.

LAMBASTING THE ‘LIBERALS’: When Ranaut felt that a certain political agenda was rooting for her suspension on Twitter, she didn’t hold back. “Whole libru [liberals] lobby is desperate to get my account suspended, Raat ko kehte honge, so ja nahin to Kangana tweet kar degi [They must say at night, go to sleep otherwise Kangana may tweet], this is the effect of Kangana Ranaut on the strongest lobby in this nation. Jo political parties ko hila dete hain maine unko hila diya [Those who shake up political parties are left shaken by me]. Ha ha good night friends.”
