Priyanka Chopra Called Out For Sporting A Tee With An Insensitive Message On A Magazine Cover
People have called out Chopra for belittling the plight of refugees and immigrants by showing them as less than a luxurious traveller and have demanded an explanation from the actress.
Actress Priyanka Chopra recently tweeted a picture of herself sporting a bold and fearless look on the cover of a luxury lifestyle and travel magazine, Conde Nast Traveller India, for the latter's sixth anniversary issue. And as usual, the actress, who is presently basking in the glory of her Hollywood success, looked smoking hot.
And although Chopra managed to magnetize readers with her captivating cover photo, it was the message on her tank top that didn't go down too well with social media users. The message which read - '
Refugee, Immigrant, Outsider, Traveller, irked several of her fans who labelled it as 'insensitive and offensive.
While a few online users chose to interpret the message in a positive sense, a large section of Chopra's fans thought that it was appalling and had racist overtones. People have called out Chopra for belittling the plight of refugees and immigrants and have demanded an explanation from the actress.
At a time when the Syrian refugee crisis has shaken the world, a global icon like Chopra sporting a tank top with an 'insensitive' message as this, has left the Internet fuming.
Here are some angry responses that were directed at the magazine and the actress:

Priyanka's shirt means in an ideal world there would be no refugees, immigrants or outsiders. We'd all be travellers, global citizens.
