A confident Priyanka Chopra stepped out with husband Nick Jonas to celebrate Joe Jonas’ birthday amid intense comments regarding her recent BeautyCon appearance and Kashmir comments.
37-year-old actress Priyanka Chopra recently faced severe backlash for her comments on the Kashmir conflict. Since then, she has been quite on social media. She has also been missing from the Jonas Brothers concerts. However, she stepped out for the first time since BeautyCon with her husband Nick Joas for Joe Jonas’s 30th birthday.
She looked confident despite the recent backlash. Priyanka was wearing a black feathered dress while Nick wore a black tux. Their fancy dresses suggested a Gatsby type fancy theme for Jonas’ party.
During a Q&A session at BeautyCon, a woman named Ayesha asked Priyanka, “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. 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…”
The mic was then snatched from Ayesha by Chopra’s bodyguard. She had to speak loudly to get Chopra to hear the rest of her statement. Chopra replied, “I hear you, whenever you’re done venting. Done? Done? Okay, cool. I have many many friends from Pakistan, and I am from India. War is not something that I’m really fond of, but I am patriotic, so…”
She added, “I’m sorry if I’ve hurt sentiments, to people who do love me, and have loved me. But all of us have a sort of middle ground we all have to walk, just like you probably do as well.”
“The way you came at me right now, girl, don’t yell, we’re all here for love. Don’t yell,” she said, adding, “We all walk that middle ground, but thank you for your enthusiasm and question, and your voice.”
The Quantico actress faced severe criticism for her behavior with the audience member. People on social media demanded that UNICEF reconsider Priyanka’s position as the peace ambassador.
Priyanka Chopra Jonas also lost more than 3 million followers on her Instagram account.
Priyanka Chopra Jonas has not yet responded to the backlash.
