People have started a petition to strip Priyanka Chopra of her UNICEF goodwill ambassadorship

People have started a petition to strip Priyanka Chopra of her UNICEF goodwill ambassadorship

Recently Priyanka Chopra joined her fellow Bollywood stars in praising India’s military and their crossing of the sensitive Line of Control between Pakistani and Indian-Administered Kashmir, which has left people outraged.

Fans were quick to respond to her tweet to say that such support contradicts her status as UNICEF’s goodwill ambassador as the goal of UNICEF is to allow celebrities to use their fame to draw attention to important issues.

Pakistanis were pretty outraged at Priyanka for her statement and started tagging the UN and UNICEF, asking them to revoke her status.

In this sensitive and tension-filled phase, Priyanka failed to condemn the war and in fact promoted it quite clearly with her tweet.

Pakistani actor Armeena Khan was also quick to respond fiercely to her tweet showing support for India’s airspace violation and advocating war. She also remarked that next time she speaks up for peace and goodwill, people should remember her hypocrisy.

Priyanka has yet to comment on the backlash she is receiving. She had previously visited Rohingya and Syrian refugee camps as part of her partnership with UNICEF.

    A goodwill ambassador is meant to serve the people in humanitarian disasters, and promote equality. Priyanka Chopra has abused her role by supporting a war that is built on Muslim hatred from far-right Hindu nationalists. Many Indian celebrities have posted irresponsible posts but Priyanka is a International UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador.
    She should be stripped of her title and her movies should be banned in nations that still support humanity.

    She does not deserve to be a goodwill ambassador for UN. She should be stripped from this position.

    She should be stripped of her status as UN ambassador. Innocent Kashmiris are being killed, raped and terrorised by the Indian army.
