Recently, Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra came in support of 16-year-old Greta Thunberg who is fighting the drastic consequences of climatic changes occurring due to human activities. But things didn’t work out in favour of the actress as Twitterati stormed her comment section with backlash.
Soon after Priyanka tweeted in support of Greta with the hashtag #HowDareYou, users slammed her for burning firecrackers on her wedding, smoking cigars despite having asthma and causing air pollution with her luxurious cars that she bought with husband Nick Jonas. Things went to the extent that there are as many as 365 comments (as we report) on the Tweet with the numbers increasing every second.
Check out some of the user comments to Priyanka’s tweet below:
Now Priyanka will sell out her rolls Royce and other cars, will buy a bullock cart to bring generations together and will contribute to less polluted world …. as Air pollution is very harmful for Asthametic patients like her …. We are Proud of you ? Priyanka ..
