While Delhi and other parts of the country choke under the pall of severe air pollution, many on the Internet seem to have found an easy target to release their exasperation – Priyanka Chopra.
Many would remember the uproar Chopra caused earlier in the year when a photo of her smoking along with Nick Jonas on a yacht went viral on social media. Chopra, who suffers from asthma and has previously been vocal against the bursting of crackers on Diwali was mercilessly trolled for the photo. Hordes of belligerent netizens asked the Dostana actor to quit smoking if she wanted to cure her asthma instead of lecturing others to not burst crackers on Diwali.
The same trolls are back today to troll the actor who on Sunday took to social media to post a selfie of herself in a mask, on Instagram. Chopra, who is in Delhi shooting for her upcoming project ‘The White Tiger’ wrote in her caption, “It’s so hard to shoot here (Delhi) right now that I can’t even imagine what it must be like to live here under these conditions. We r blessed with air purifiers and masks. Pray for the homeless. Be safe everyone”.
“Angry” netizens, many of whom may actively contribute to increasing air pollution in various ways themselves (Yes, driving cars, using ACs causes pollution too), instantly crucified Chopra for her post.
