Priyanka Chopra responds to accusation of ‘encouraging nuclear war’

"You are a Unicef ambassador for peace and you're encouraging nuclear war against Pakistan"


Priyanka Chopra was accused of “encouraging nuclear war” at BeautyCon in Los Angeles.

The Hollywood star was taking part in a Q&A session when she was confronted by a woman, who later named herself on Twitter as Ayesha Malik, who confronted the actress about a tweet she had sent earlier this year.

“It was kind of hard hearing you talk about humanity, because as your neighbor, a Pakistani, I know you’re a bit of a hypocrite,” Malik said.

“You are a Unicef ambassador for peace and you’re encouraging nuclear war against Pakistan. There’s no winner in this.

“As a Pakistani, millions of people like me have supported you in your business of Bollywood.”

She was referring to a tweet send from Priyanka’s Twitter account in February which read “Jai Hind”, meaning “victory to India.”

India and Pakistan have been in conflict over the Kashmir region.

The mic was taken from Malik before her statement was finished.

Priyanke responded to the question, accusing Malik of “venting.”

“War is not something I am really fond of but I am patriotic. Whenever you’re done venting … got it, done? Okay, cool.”
“So, I have many, many friends from Pakistan and I am from India, and war is not something that I am really fond of but I am patriotic,” Chopra said.
“So, I’m sorry if I hurt sentiments to people who do love me and have loved me, but I think that all of us have a sort of middle ground that we all have to walk, just like you probably do as well.”
“The way you came at me right now?” she continued. “Girl, don’t yell. We’re all here for love. Don’t yell. Don’t embarrass yourself.”
“But we all walk that middle ground, but thank you for your enthusiasm and your question and your voice.”
The exchange was captured on video by social media users.
