Priyanka Chopra was at a public function in Los Angeles, during the weekend, where a Pakistani woman asked her a ‘hypocrite’ for tweeting in support of the Indian Army despite being a United Nations Goodwill Ambassador. The woman also involved Priyanka of “encouraging nuclear war against Pakistan,” while she spoke from the audience at the Beautycon event in the US.
The news was pulled up by several media outlets, who celebrated Priyanka for showing composure in the situation. However, in a development in the matter, the woman, performs by the name of Ayesha Malik, has shot out several tweets on the social media website criticising Priyanka for turning the narrative upon her and making her the “bad guy.”
he woman shared videos from the event, bringing each one of them with messages. One of her tweets read, “Hi, I’m the girl that “yelled” at Priyanka Chopra. It was hard listening to her say, “we should be neighbours and love each other” — swing that advice over to your PM. Both India and Pakistan were in danger. And instead, she tweeted out in favour of nuclear war (sic).”
After the airstrike in Balakot in February this year, Priyanka had admired the Indian armed forces on Twitter, writing, “Jai Hind. Indian Armed Forces.” It had led to an online petition that was filed to remove Priyanka as UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador. UNICEF never commented on her controversial tweet.
