Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut is being trolled for reacting to a piece of fictitious news on Twitter. This comes at a time when there is growing tension between the actress and the Shiv Sena led Maharashtra government.
On Monday, a satire web portal, thefauxy.com, which describes itself as "India's finest, fastest and fictitious news source", posted a tweet on their unverified Twitter account that reads: "Facebook Launches 'Mark Yourself Safe From Shivsena Goons' Feature."
Reacting to the tweet, Kangana posted on her verified Twitter account, "Thank you Facebook free speech must be protected in a democracy, people need to be protected from Sonia Sena goons much like COVID -19 virus, thank you for being considerate, well done."

Netizens didn't let go of the opportunity to troll the actress over her reaction to the fake news.
"Confused if she knows this is a humor website and she also playing along or not," commented a user.
"Must be sarcasm in all probability. Fauxy is known comic website," wrote another user.
"Are u doing this for real," asked another user who found Kangana's tweet hard to believe.
"I think she doesn't know," declared another user.
On Monday morning, Kangana Ranaut returned to her hometown Manali from Mumbai. Referring to that, a user alleged, "She ran away from Mumbai and marked her safe against NCB and Mumbai police for her involvement with the drug mafia."
