Fashion designers Anand Bhushan and Rimzim Dadu have said they will no longer work with Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut hours after Twitter permanently suspended her account, saying she had repeatedly violated its rules on hateful conduct and abusive behaviour.
"In view of certain events today, we have taken a decision to remove all collaboration images with Kangana Ranaut from our social media channels. We also pledge never to be associated with her in any capacity in the future. We as a brand do not support hate speech," Bhushan, in a statement that he shared on social media, said.
In one of her Instagram stories, Rimzim said, "Never too late to do the right thing! We are removing all posts of past collaboration with Kangana Ranaut from our social channels and pledge to not engage in any future association with her."

Ranaut, known for her often inflammatory tweets, had posted several messages following the Mamata Banerjee-led Trinamool Congress' win over the BJP in West Bengal and incidents of post-poll violence. Calling for President's Rule in the state, she also blamed Banerjee for the violence and called her unpublishable names.
According to Twitter's Abusive Behaviour policy, "one may not engage in the targeted harassment of someone, or incite other people to do so or attempt to harass, intimidate, or silence someone else's voice".
Announcing the decision to suspend the controversial actor's Twitter account, a spokesperson of the social media giant had said, ""We've been clear that we will take strong enforcement action on behavior that has the potential to lead to offline harm."
