Priyanka Chopra became an international sensation with her role in the Hollywood show ‘Quantico’. After two successful seasons, the show came back for the third season in 2018, but all was not good for Pee Cee starrer ‘Quantico’ as it was decided by the makers that the show will be cancelled after the third season. However, after the initial successful run of the third season, the recent episode of ‘Quantico’ invited some backlash from the audience.
The reason for the outrage of the viewers is the portrayal of Indians as terrorists who plan a plot to bomb Manhattan, in order to blame Pakistan for the attack. The Indian audience is even more furious as the show stars one of the leading actress of Indian film industry, Priyanka Chopra.
Both ‘Quantico’ and Priyanka Chopra are facing the wrath of the audience all over the world as they have taken their anger to the social media and posted hate comments against the actress and the show.
They are furious at the thought of showing Indians as terrorists who are trying to frame Pakistan for the attack, while Priyanka stayed ‘shut’ and went on with the script.
People are brutally slamming the actress and asking for an apology from Piggy Chops for the wrong portrayal of Indians as terrorists. Many of them are asking the brands associated with Priyanka to ‘boycott’ her!
Take a read at some of the hate comments against Priyanka Chopra:
Her apology is mandatory!
Let’s show the world, the power of a silent, peaceful protest for justice.

People have questions!
ABC apologises to Indians for Hindu Nationalist Terror Plot portrayed in Quantico.
What’s holding Priyanka Chopra back from Apologising?Sell outs like her are an insult to India.She consciously consented for the act.Shame.

Priyanka Chopra would’ve been running for her life,begging for forgiveness if Indian Hindu Nationalists were indeed Terrorists. Instead she can afford to stay arrogant & not even apologize for building a false narrative in Quantico.
Hindus are the most Tolerant folks.#Quantico

Social media has some suggestions!
This is the scene from Quantico where the terrorist is being shown with ‘Rudraksha’ & Priyanka Chopra had no objections with it. Now let’s #BoycottSamsung nation-wide until the remove her from brand ambassador post. pic.twitter.com/EJzWKFE66A

Shame on Priyanka Chopra for letting ‘Rudraksh’ become a symbol of terrorism in Quantico’s new episode.
1. Dear Samsung, Immediately fire her as a brand ambassador of Harman or we #BoycottSamsung in India
2. Dear @Ra_THORe ensure this episode does not get aired from now.Advertisement— Bhaiyyaji (@bhaiyyajispeaks) June 6, 2018
No excuses. Just as @priyankachopra would not shame herself doing a porno role (even when someone else is producing & directing), so also she must protect the dignity of her culture. SHAMEFUL! https://t.co/EGUOM47aES

GOI should cancel @priyankachopra passport & should not allow her to enter our nation. We dont want this “Desi Girl” who desires to frame great India as a Terrorist state on International platform . Let her stay in Hollywood & lick Pakistan boots . Traitor #Quantico

That’s the question!

Shame on PeeCee?
This is how Priyanka Chopra repays us for making her top Bollywood star- by not protesting against Hindus being shown as terrorists in serial Quantico starring her in lead role. Shame on you #PriyankaChopra #BoycottSamsung until they remove her from brand ambassador post

She could have!
Josh Safran, Quantico’s showrunner, said that Major rule of Quantico is that it never features a Muslim terrorist. So, Is that why they featured Hindu Terrorist?
I think Priyanka Chopra could asked for script changes because She’d already changed some dialogues in Quantico before

It is unfortunate indeed!
Priyanka Chopra’s #Quantico shows Hindu Nationalists with RUDRAKSHS plotting to blow up Manhattan to frame Pakistan
Its unfortunate that Piggy Chops an Indian National was OK and agreed to be a part of the show that disrespected India despite being aware of ground realities. pic.twitter.com/lTvFraGSKF

It does hurt!
For pseudo-nationalist Sanghis, it is MORE hurtful because it is Priyanka Chopra! https://t.co/YzwLTvgrqe

He has a suggestion for Salman Khan:
Hey @BeingSalmanKhan pls don’t work with @priyankachopra in #Bharat. In #Quantico they show ‘Indian nationalists’ trying to blow up Manhattan to frame Pakistan. N PC agreed to script n let our county’s name down. #Bollywood stand against this rubbish act n #boycottpriyankachopra
— Sia Shah (@wondergirlsia) June 5, 2018
Who would have thought?!
Not just unfair but utterly shameful that Priyanka Chopra is part of something so derogatory against a country which made her a superstar and helped her win the crown of Ms. World #Quantico

Incidentally, the makers of ‘Quantico’, ABC has extended an apology asking people not to take it out on actress Priyanka Chopra because ‘she didn’t make the show, nor does she write or direct it’.
But, the important question here is ‘Will Priyanka Chopra’s apology calm the angry people?’ Let’s see!
