Its been a sad week for African Americans living in the US. A shocking incident jolted the world where a 46-year-old black man, died in police custody on Monday. A video shows a police officer with his knee on his neck shortly before his death.
The video has caused an uproar across the world highlighting white supremacy and police brutality. Many celebrities across the world spoke on the issue, supporting the minority black community with the #blacklivesmatter.
Priyanka Chopra is one such celebrity who took to social media to raise voice over the horrible incident.

There is so much work to be done and it needs to starts at an individual level on a global scale. We all have a responsibility to educate ourselves and end this hate. End this race war here in the US, and around the world. Wherever you live, whatever your circumstances, NO ONE deserves to die, especially at the hands of another because of their skin color. On May 25th, George Floyd was pinned down by the neck by a Minneapolis police officer and died. He laid there, fighting for his life, struggling to breathe, and other officers just stood there and watched. The officer has now been charged with murder. George, I am praying for your family. ❤️ Text “FLOYD” to 55156 and sign the petition. #JusticeForGeorgeFloyd
While it remains an important issue, Priyanka is being dragged on social media over it.
As Priyanka manages to be ‘woke’ over this issue, she can surely highlight the unfair treatment happening to minorities in her own country.
The goodwill ambassador turns a blind eye when its Muslims terrorized and brutally killed on her own homeland.
Twitteraties school Priyanka for having ‘Gora Complex’
Many social media uses were quick to point out the actress’s hypocrisy.
Priyanka Chopra posting about police brutality in USA and not too long ago she was celebrating KPS Gill for doing the same in Punjab? I have never seen a celebrity this tone deaf.

I try not to get abroad the Priyanka Chopra hate train but seriously, true zalalat 🖕🏻to her for pretending to care about police brutality in the US while cheering on Modi when it comes to police brutality in India. @priyankachopra

After Priyanka Chopra, now Tiger Shroff and Kareena Kapoor have raised voice against the murder of George Floyd. Bollywood celebs, please sit down. You have absolutely no moral grounding to speak on racial injustice in USA while you keep mum on Brahmanical atrocities in India 1/3

Priyanka Chopra is the truest definition of NRIs saying BLM but not giving a shit about the numerous Kashmiris killed by the Indian forces. pic.twitter.com/8d47kOff0l

Last year, Priyanka was dragged for promoting violence in the name of patriotism.
Priyanka Chopra’s hypocritical behavior of justifying the India and Pakistan war already put a spotlight on her biased pro-Modi mindset.
The actress was confronted by a Pakistani woman named Ayesha Malik who saw Chopra talking about peace. She stopped by to ask a simple question of why did she tweet “Jai Hind” and is now all about peace-making.
Not to mention, Chopra is also a UN ambassador so her actions carry even more weight. Her initial tweet had been met with severe hate especially because it was extremely damaging. It seemed that Chopra doesn’t understand the importance of her platform and definitely misused it.
