She wrote, "Elon is woke's new target. They can't stand anyone, who can think for him or herself, basically, who is self-made, fiery, intelligent and above all sane... To get woke's sympathy one has to be dimwit, powerless and incompetent... liberals/ wokes have such role models... they have started massive hate campaign against Elon."

In May 2021, Kangana's Twitter account was 'permanently suspended for repeated violations. A Twitter spokesperson said, "We've been clear that we will take strong enforcement action on behaviour that has the potential to lead to offline harm.
