Priyanka Chopra’s cover on Condé Nast Traveller with words – refugee, immigrant and outsider kept the midnight oil burning on social media.
The message on the t-shirt the Quantico star is wearing has not gone down well with some, who took to social media to slam it as “insensitive.”
The 34-year-old Quantico star’s plain white t-shirt features refugee, immigrant, outsider, traveller arranged one below the other but the first three words are struck off with a red line, suggesting that Priyanka is a traveller.
Some Twitter users slammed the cover.
One wrote, “Oh, I’m sorry, I wasn’t aware that being a refugee is a matter of choice…What were you thinking?!”
Another said, “@CNTIndia @priyankachopra offensive t-shirt. With 65 million ppl displaced, highest no. since WWII, to pretend as if it’s a choice. #nonPC.”
“@cntindia being a refugee is NOT a choice, it’s a matter of survival. i was already disappointed for her comments abt feminism, now this,” a Twitter user posted.
While Priyanka is yet to comment on her controversial cover, Condé Nast Traveller has released a statement that said, “At Condé Nast Traveller, we believe that the opening up of borders and the breaking down of walls can help us discover the world, and open up our minds and hearts. So, when we had actor Priyanka Chopra wear a T-shirt we created on the cover of the 6th-anniversary issue, we had a point to make”. – CINEWS
