Priyanka Chopra appeared on the latest cover of Conde Nast Traveller magazine. While the actress looked stunning in the picture, texts on her t-shirt made some people offended.
PeeCee shared the cover photo on Twitter, following which some people started expressing discontent at the words printed on her t-shirt. Priyanka's t-shirt has "refugee, immigrant, outsider, traveller" printed one after other but the first three words are struck off with red lines, making it appear that the actress is a traveller.
However, some on Twitter found the idea very offencive as they said that being a refugee is not a matter of choice. "Oh, I'm sorry, I wasn't aware that being a refugee is a matter of choice...What were you thinking?! @CNTIndia @priyankachopra [sic]," one person tweeted.
"@priyankachopra @CNTIndia Didn't realize being a refugee was a choice, those terms have NOTHING to do wth each other. Use a damn dictionary," another said.
"@priyankachopra @CNTIndia Your new cover is very degrading. Do you have a clue what it means to be a #refugee or an #immigrant? Awful!," said another Twitterati.
However, there were some who supported Priyanka and the magazine as they said the idea of the cover is that an ideal world would have no refugees, immigrants or outsiders, but all will be considered as travellers.
"People shouldn't be labelled as Refugee-Immigrant-Outsider Everyone should have freedom to travel anywhere! I love it @priyankachopra," a fan tweeted.
"Priyanka's shirt means in an ideal world there would be no refugees, immigrants or outsiders. We'd all be travellers, global citizens," said another tweet.
The cover of Conde Nast Traveller featuring Priyanka received many such mixed reactions on Twitter.
