Remembering Kangana’s Words

In 2022, amidst the controversy surrounding Will Smith’s actions at the Oscars, Kangana Ranaut took to Instagram Stories to express her support for the actor. She shared a photo of Will slapping Chris and stated that she would have done the same if put in a similar situation.

She wrote, “If some idiot used my mom or sister’s illness to make a bunch of fools laugh, I would slap him like @willsmith did… bold move…”

Why is the Post Making Headlines Again?

Following the recent slap incident involving Kangana at the airport, the actress shared her thoughts on the matter, criticizing those who condoned the assault against her. Taking to social media, she had stern words for those who supported the CISF constable.

Kangana tweeted, “Every criminal has a motive behind their actions, be it emotional, physical, psychological, or financial. No crime is committed without a reason. Yet, criminals are held accountable and punished. If you excuse the emotional impulses that drive criminals, you are condoning actions that violate the law.”

She continued, “If you are okay with invading someone’s personal space, touching their body without consent, and subjecting them to assault, then deep down, you are okay with rape or murder. It’s crucial to introspect on your criminal tendencies, and I suggest turning to yoga and meditation to rid yourself of grudges, hate, and jealousy.”

Reactions and Responses

Responding to Kangana’s tweet, a user on social media highlighted the actress’s apparent double standards by comparing her reaction to the Will Smith incident with another controversial statement she made earlier. This sparked a debate on the limits of hypocrisy in public figures like Kangana.

On Reddit, users also shared their opinions on Kangana’s resurfaced post. Some criticized her for her alleged hypocrisy, while others questioned the consequences she faced compared to the CISF constable involved in the recent incident.

More Details on the Slap Incident

The altercation at Chandigarh airport on June 6th, where Kangana was reportedly slapped by a CISF constable, occurred as she was boarding a flight to Delhi. An FIR has been filed against the constable, and the actress’s statements regarding farmer protests may have played a role in the heated exchange.

Amidst the ongoing discussions and debates surrounding Kangana’s past actions and the recent airport incident, the actress continues to be at the center of attention in both Bollywood and political spheres.
