Day after Rihanna post, celebs speak up—for government.


A day after international pop star Rihanna shared an article on farmer protests and Internet shutdown in Delhi and tweeted “Why aren’t we talking about this?”, some of India’s top celebrities did just that. They responded with hashtags – #IndiaTogether and #IndiaAgainstPropaganda – tweeting their support for the government and their displeasure over Rihanna’s interjection.

From Bharat Ratna winners Sachin Tendulkar and Lata Mangeshkar to actors Akshay Kumar, Kangana Ranaut and Ajay Devgn, filmmaker Karan Johar, producer Ektaa Kapoor and cricketer Virat Kohli, the celebrities took to Twitter soon after the Ministry of External Affairs reacted to Rihanna, teen climate activist Greta Thunberg and others who highlighted the protests on social media.
