Mumbai: Instagram has deleted Kangana Ranaut’s post that announced she had tested positive for COVID-19 and called it “small time flu”, the actress revealed in a social media post on Monday.
Earlier on Saturday, Kangana had shared a tone-deaf post in which she not only announced that she was infected with the virus, but also wrote dismissively of it as a “small time flu which got too much press”.
She was strongly criticized in the comments thread for her insensitivity and for spreading misinformation during a time when the country is battling a brutal second wave of COVID-19, NDTV reported.
However, the actress typically remained unrepentant and claimed Instagram deleted her post because she “threatened to demolish COVID”. In an Instagram post, she also took a jibe at what she called a “COVID fan club”.
Last week, Twitter permanently suspended Kangana’s account.
