Priyanka Chopra Jonas shared her note on Instagram but in no time it was shared by people on twitter. Sharing a screenshot of the same, a twitter user wrote, “Priyanka Chopra is the truest definition of NRIs saying BLM but not giving a shit about the numerous Kashmiris killed by the Indian forces.”

Another wrote, “Priyanka must be the most hypocrite actress ever. 1 Keep quiet about anti-Dalit atrocities in India but talks about racism in US 2. Plays minority & brown card in US but sells fairness cream in India, Hardly talks about colorism/castism in Bollywood”

As for Disha Patani, the actor shared a graphic image with hands of all shades signifying all colours are beautiful. A user calling her out wrote, “look at this who is saying, the hypocrite who is endorsing fairness cream for money now giving lectures all colours are same.”

Another taking a dig at Disha Patani wrote, “All colours are beautiful unless you are not fair. Then you need to change your skin color.”
