Social Media Platform Giant: Twitter pulled down a Rajinikanth‘s video on ‘Janta Curfew’ for alleged misinformation.
South Superstar Rajinikanth had taken to his Twitter page and shared a video in which he is appealing to people to follow ‘Janta Curfew’ initiated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Last Saturday, superstar Rajinikanth took to his Twitter page and posted a video in which he spoke about the ongoing Janata Curfew as initiated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. But Twitter took down the video as it allegedly violated the rules of its microblogging website. In the video, Rajinikanth could be heard saying,
“With the Prime Minister calling for Janata Curfew on March 22nd, India prepares to avoid crucial Stage 3 community transmission of coronavirus in the country.”
PTI also shared that the Darbar actor said,
“Italy tried implementing a similar nationwide curfew to prevent Stage 3, but to the lack of support from the citizens, the efforts failed, resulting in the death of thousands of people to the pandemic (sic).”
Rajini further said in the video that he tweeted on his social media account,
“We don’t want such a crisis in India and I urge everyone to rise to the occasion and participate in the Janata Curfew by strictly staying indoors and practising social-distancing. In these crucial times, let us also remember and thank the selfless service of all the doctors, nurses and medical workers by participating in the nationwide appreciation and prayers at 5 pm tomorrow (sic).”
But the video is still there on YouTube. Have a look at it below:
A lot of Twitterati alleged that Rajinikanth shared wrong information regarding the coronavirus outbreak. On the other hand, many of his fans started the trend ‘ShameOnTwitterIndia’ for taking down the actor’s video.
Meanwhile, PM Modi urged entire India to stay indoors on Sunday from 7 am to 9 pm.
