Hollywood actor, Bollywood icon and one of the most famous actresses in the world Priyanka Chopra is in the news again but not for a good reason. The former Miss World faced heavy criticism for one of her tweets through which she hurt the feelings of her many fans and followers in Pakistan. In that Tweet, the UNICEF goodwill ambassador was seen encouraging Indian forces for their attack on unarmed civilians in Pakistan’s side of Kashmir.
Priyanka Chopra tweeted:
Jai Hind #IndianArmedForces 🇮🇳 🙏🏽

The above statement where she promotes war instead of peace was seen as a message against the Pakistan Army, which in fact is one of the biggest allies of the United Nations’ Peace Keeping Force and has done commendable work around the world. After posting the tweet, Priyanka Chopra came under fire by Pakistanis from around the world who believe that due to her undiplomatic behavior, she should be removed as UNICEF goodwill ambassador.
Irritated fans are furious because they feel that she wasn’t acting like a Goodwill ambassador but an Indian, which doesn’t suit her position. One of her fans Mahbina shared the petition regarding her removal as part of UNICEF and it became viral in no time.
“Stop war supporting celebrities from representing the UN. Sign the petition to @UNICEF asking Priyanka Chopra removed as UN Goodwill Ambassador immediately”

Another fan tweeted against Priyanka Chopra showing his frustration against her statement through the Social Media.

Priyanka Chopra hasn’t commented again on Twitter as it is all silent from her side. It is sad that someone who has global following would have to prove her loyalty to India using Twitter, because she has to come back home someday and if she doesn’t tweet in favor of war, deal with the goons of many politicians, with one sitting at the helm as the Prime Minister.
