Netizens BASH Priyanka Chopra After Nick Jonas Tweets About #Blacklivesmatter; ‘Your Racist Pri Sold Skin Whitening Creams In India’
Protests against police brutality and racism erupted across the USA after George Floyd’s death on May 25. His death at the hands of a white police officer has sparked outrage not just in America, but all over the world. Several Indian celebrities have also been speaking up about George Floyd’s murder and are supporting the #BlackLivesMatter movement. However, after Nick Jonas tweeted about his and Priyanka Chopra’s support to the #BlackLivesMatter movement, Netizens called out the hypocrisy and stated that Priyanka herself is part of the problem.

Nick Jonas tweeted, “Pri and I have heavy hearts... The reality of the inequalities in this country, and around the world, are glaring. Systemic racism, bigotry and exclusion has gone on for far too long, and remaining silent not only reinforces it, but it allows it to continue.” He further added, “The time to take action is NOW. It's no longer enough to say 'I'm not racist'. We must all do the work to be ANTI racist and stand with the black community. In our first step towards our continued efforts to help fight this fight, Pri and I have donated to the @eji_org & @ACLU... We stand with you and we love you. #BlackLivesMatter #JusticeForGeorgeFloyd.”

Netizens were quick to point out that Priyanka Chopra has herself promoted skin whitening creams in India. One user wrote, “Was pri's 'heart heavy' before or after she promoted skin lightening creams? Was it 'heavy' when she watched Muslims get lynched in her own country & said nothing? What about the time when you invited a fascist to your wedding? It seems like her heart is doing just fine,” while another user tweeted, “Pri was the face of skin lightening creams in india. Pri is part of the problem.” 

Sharing the ad of a skin lightening cream featuring Priyanka Chopra, another user wrote, “Here's your rac*st Pri selling skin whitening creams in India.” ALSO READ: Kareena Kapoor, Nick Jonas Seek #JusticeForGeorgeFloyd The African-American Who Suffocated To Death Because Of Police Brutality
