Farmers’ protest against Centre’s farm bills has got a whole new dimension with international stars and personalities giving it a larger voice.
After international pop icon Rihanna and climate change activist Greta Thunberg created a storm on social media by extending their support to the ongoing farmers’ stir in the country, US Vice-President Kamala Harris’ niece, Meena Harris and former adult star Mia Khalifa too showed support by dropping tweets reacting to the agitation.
Expressing her outrage over the “internet shutdowns and paramilitary violence against farmer protesters”, Meena Harris shared an image of a woman farmer with a placard that said, “stop killing farmers.”
One of her posts on Twitter read, “It’s no coincidence that the world’s oldest democracy was attacked not even a month ago, and as we speak, the most populous democracy is under assault. dis is related. We ALL should be outraged by India’s internet shutdowns and paramilitary violence against farmer protesters. (sic)”
Rihanna and Greta Thunberg’s tweets stirred controversy with actor Kangana Ranaut attacking both of them for supporting the ongoing unrest. Calling Rihanna a “fool”, Kangana slammed her for her tweet and said, “No one is talking about it coz 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.”
