Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut has faced a major backlash for calling international pop star Rihanna a ‘fool and dummy’ for coming out in support of farmers protesting on the outskirts of Delhi since November against the government’s three agricultural laws.
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.
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…
Sit down you fool, we are not selling our nation like you dummies. https://t.co/OIAD5Pa61a
