Rihanna’s tweet about the farmers’ protests in the national capital has most definitely rattled some nerves. As a result of which, a plethora of Bollywood celebrities and Indian cricketers have risen from their deep apolitical slumbers to tweet almost identical takes on the subject.
I am sure it is all coincidental. Anyhow, there have been others who have used their platform to speak up against the internet ban and the state’s attitude towards the farmers!

If one tweet rattles your unity, one joke rattles your faith or one show rattles your religious belief then it’s you who has to work on strengthening your value system not become ‘propaganda teacher’ for others.— taapsee pannu (@taapsee) February 4, 2021

It took one tweet of @rihanna to make the MEA and Govt to react to the farmers. Why did it take that long? There is no propaganda. The only propaganda that is happening is the one being created by the ones who want anarchy in our country.— Farah Khan (@FarahKhanAli) February 3, 2021
A divided country is easier to rule.

(You know that moment in a zombie film climax, when the zombie was looking elsewhere, and a human was cautiously stepping away, and bam! It suddenly turns to him.)
Just got that feeling!

One of cricket’s greatest socio-political stands. Imagine if Don Bradman said ‘Apartheid is South Africa’s internal matter. Let them resolve it amicably & peacefully. We can be spectators but not participants’. Just imagine. pic.twitter.com/v9BsG6Vrv0— Raunak Kapoor (@RaunakRK) February 4, 2021
