Social media users, including Dubai residents, are divided on the recent scandal involving Priyanka Chopra and the recent tensions between India-Pakistan.
UNICEF Ambassador for peace, actress and singer Priyanka Chopra was taken aback when a Pakistani girl asked a question during an event in Los Angeles.
The Indian actress was called a ‘hypocrite’ by Ayesha Malik, who asked why she ‘encourages nuclear war against Pakistan’- based on a tweet from Chopra saying ‘Jai Hind’ (Long Live India).
The Pakistani girl made mention the millions of Pakistanis who have supported her Bollywood career.
“Priyanka is incredibly condescending and arrogrant”
Priyanka Chopra is incredibly condescending & arrogant: “girl, don’t yell, don’t embarrass yourself”.
Also, imagine responding with “I have Pakistani friends” after being asked about supporting war between the two nuclear powers. pic.twitter.com/bLk8005dK6

“Just because she’s a celebrity doesn’t mean she can do anything she wants. She must remember she is a UNICEf ambassador.”
“Priyanka has done a great job at being a UNICEF ambassador, and her work in Bangladesh, Ethiopia are examples.”
‘The way the girl was snatched from her disagreement and mic is really negatively astounding”
Tensions between India-Pakistan have been at an all-time high recently
The timing for the Priyanka Chopra comment and the public’s response comes amid rising tensions between the two nations, India and Pakistan.
Reports say that Kashmir has been the pivotal conflict between the two countries.
