On Tuesday, Rihanna created a flutter by twitting: "Why aren't we talking about this? #FarmersProtest ."
The tweet by Rihanna, who has 100 million followers on the microblogging site, garned thousands of retweets and likes within an hour. Kangana Ranaut has some three million followers.
Rihanna’s followers went up by 10 lakhs after she posted the tweet, by morning, the farmers’ and the government’s obduracy were getting flagged by prominent American, British and Canadian liberal politicians.
Soon after Rihanna's tweet, Kangana Ranaut chose to offer an answer to Rihanna and responded to her tweet using adjectives like "fool" and "dummy" while addressing her and calling the farmers “terrorists”.
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...— Kangana Ranaut (@KanganaTeam) February 2, 2021

She hasn’t released a single song in 5 years, sells make up but looks like she is feeling Corona blues,Forbes estimated incomes are just PR gimmicks big sham,a million or two won’t hurt her right now, also notice in her tweet she did not commit to any opinion just a vague tweet. https://t.co/57VGWJZ8Be— Kangana Ranaut (@KanganaTeam) February 3, 2021
