Global icon Priyanka Chopra has found herself in the midst of a crisis after upsetting a huge number of fans with a tweet in which she cheered for war, amid escalating tensions between India and Pakistan.
This has resulted in a petition filed by the people of Pakistan seeking her removal as UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador.
Priyanka was slammed for her contentious stance when she was seen rooting for war praising the Indian military despite being a significant voice for peace.
This has led to an online petition filed by Pakistanis who have been outraged at Priyanka for her statement.
C’mon uys sign this petition https://t.co/d9gLLgH6zk

Priyanka Chopra doesn’t deserve to be UN goodwill ambassador: “she has celebrated an attempt at war against Pakistan. Someone as influential as Priyanka, who has a massive following globally, must know how war is never the solution to win at each other.” https://t.co/CydZAAzKAC

Earlier, Priyanka also met with immense censure by Pakistani actress Armeena Khan who called the actress out for endorsing war.
Armeena also stated that the next time Priyanka speaks up for peace and goodwill, people should remember her hypocrisy.
WHAT?!!! But aren’t you supposed to be a Good Will ambassador for @UNICEF? Screen shot this everyone and next time she speaks up for peace and goodwill. Let’s remind her of this hypocrisy. https://t.co/Jew88bMtYv

It is pertinent to mention that Priyanka Chopra was made the UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador in December 2016.
