People are calling out Priyanka Chopra for speaking about #GeorgeFloyd and not minorities in India on social media.

This not for the first time Mrs. Jonas is found highlighting a selective narrative. It was last year she was criticized for gaslighting a young Pakistani activist for questioning her over her pro-war stance.

Indian actress right after the murder of 46-year-old African American George Floyd took to social media flaunting her concern over the matter and calling for action against racism and police brutality in the US.

In her post, she wrote: “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. ⁣”

Former Miss World and former UN Goodwill Ambassador, further added, “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.
