Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas recently tied the knot in a western and a Hindu wedding ceremony at Umaid Bhawan Palace in Jodhpur. From the lavish sangeet ceremony to the emotional Christian and Hindu weddings, pictures and videos from the events have been shared online. Along with the joy of togetherness for Nick and Priyanka, has come an accusation for the couple. People for Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) India has accused Priyanka and Nick of animal cruelty for using horses and elephants at their wedding.
The animal rights organization also shared a video in which it could be seen the way these animals are treated with examples of couples who after knowing about this brutality withdrew from using animals on their wedding. In a statement given to IANS by the CEO of PETA India Dr. Manilal Valliyate, he said, “Priyanka has been ill-served by not being advised of the firestorm that would be caused by participating in animal abuse. It doesn’t make a person look big or glamorous to promote cruelty to animals who have no choice but to serve. It makes them look small.
Overwhelmingly, these days PETA is delighted to see so many celebrities feel passionately about protecting animals.”
Moreover, The newlywed actress also drew the criticism of social media users who pointed out the use of crackers after the wedding ceremony. Apparently, on Diwali, the actress had urged people not to burn crackers and contribute in making the planet pollution free, and Priyanka who is asthmatic herself lit up the sky on the night of December 1.
