Sonu Nigam leaves Twitter over Abhijeet Bhattacharya's account suspesion
New Delhi : Singer Sonu Nigam on Wednesday announced displeasure against Twitter's decision to suspend Abhijeet Bhattacharya's micro-blogging account, also urged all "logical and sensible patriots" to do the same.
"I quit Twitter today in defiance of this one-sided sham," Sonu Nigam tweeted.
He said: "One could disagree with Abhijeetda's language but isn't Shehla's accusation that BJP has a sex racket, provocation enough to supporters?"
"If his account is deleted, why not her? And the other morons who hurl... abuses to every achiever?" he asked.
On Tuesday, Twitter suspended singer Abhijeet's micro-blogging account, terming his tweet as sexist and offensive.
In a series of tweets, Abhijeet abused some women users, particularly JNU student-activist Shehla Rashid, following which Twitter took the action.
When Shehla openly discussed about sex scandals involving BJP leaders, she was "abused by Abhijeet and hundreds of Sanghi trolls".
In reply to her statement, Abhijeet had tweeted: "There is a rumour she took money in advance for two hours and didn't satisfy the client. Big racket."
