Amid Slap Row, Kangana Ranaut’s Old Post Defending Will Smith Slapping Chris Rock Goes Viral SuperNayr

Days after a woman Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) constable allegedly slapped actor Kangana Ranaut at the Chandigarh airport, an old post of the newly-elected BJP MP has gone viral. The social media post is about Hollywood star Will Smith slapping comedian Chris Rock at the 2022 Oscars.

Kangana Ranaut Defended Will Smith After Slapgate

Ms Ranaut had defended Mr Smith, who slapped the comedian after he took a dig at the actor’s wife Jada Pinkett. Ms Pinkett, who suffers from a hair loss condition called alopecia, had a shaved head at the time.

On Thursday, Kangana Ranaut was at the Chandigarh airport to catch her flight to Delhi where she was to attend a meeting of all the newly-elected MPs of the National Democratic Alliance (NDA).

A video shows Ms Ranaut walking to a check-in counter where the incident reportedly occurred. The now-suspended constable, Kulwinder Kaur, claimed that she slapped the BJP leader for her remarks on the farmers’ protest. The incident sparked a debate on social media, with many claiming they “didn’t support violence” despite ideological differences with Ms Ranaut.

Within hours, though, some users started posting screenshots of the Queen actress’ reaction to the Will Smith-Chris Rock controversy in 2022.

In the old Instagram post, Ms Ranaut extended support to Will Smith and stated she would do the same if somebody used her family’s illness to entertain others.

“If some idiot used my mom or sister’s illness to make a bunch of fools laugh I would slap him like @willsmith did,” Kangana wrote, adding clapping emojis. 

She further called it a “bada** move” while hoping for him to come on her show ‘Lock Upp’.

Here’s Why The CISF Staff Slapped Kangana Ranaut

The incident was believed to be provoked by Kangana’s statement about women in Punjab during the farmers’ agitation, as per sources. She had mocked women in Punjab in one of her tweets, suggesting they were protesting to earn a sum of Rs 100.

CISF officials stated that the constable, Kulwinder Kaur, has been suspended with immediate effect following the incident.

In a video message posted after the incident, Ranaut explained, “The slapping incident that happened at Chandigarh Airport occurred during the security check. When I completed the security check and was waiting to pass the woman security officer, she came towards me, hit me, and started abusing me. When I asked why she did it, she said she supports the farmers.”

In another video purportedly from the airport, constable Kulwinder can be heard saying, “My mother was also among the protesters when she [Kangana] made these remarks”. The constable was detained and taken to the CISF Commandant Office for questioning.

Kangana’s Win In Lok Sabha Elections 2024

Kangana defeated her Congress rival Vikramaditya Singh, scion of Rampur state and the incumbent state public works minister, by a margin of 74,755 votes from the Mandi Lok Sabha constituency. She became only the fourth woman ever to be elected to Lok Sabha from Himachal Pradesh, and the first woman who is not from an erstwhile royal family.

On the movie front, the actress-politician has Emergency awaiting release, where she portrays Indira Gandhi. The release date of the film is yet to be confirmed.
