Twitter suspended singer Abhijeet Bhattacharya’s account after he posted a string of “offensive” tweets, especially against women.
The move by twitter came after social media users accused the 58-year-old singer of using “inappropriate” and “insulting” language.
“Account Suspended: This account has been suspended…,” stated the message from Twitter on his handle.
The singer had received flak on the social media site for a series of inflammatory tweets against journalist, who had
registered a police complaint against him last year in July.
The complaint led to his arrest. On being released on bail, the singer reportedly broke into tears.
The defiant singer later said he would repeat his words if he wished to.
On May 22, Abhijeet spewed venom at some women Twitter users, including JNU student-activist, which prompted some of the netizens to lodge a complaint with Twitter.
Abhijeet insulted a woman Twitter user when she called him out for his incendiary tweets, where he wrote, “You
Ms Pak. Tell me your cage no? Will reach there… Will do the favourite pose.”
However, it is unclear if the decision taken by Twitter is temporary or permanent.
