Use the button “Block” for online shamers
Priyanka Chopra is having a successful run in the USA, where she is currently been featuring in the hit TV show, ‘Quantico,’ and has been making innumerable appearances on some popular talk shows. And recently she has said something very crucial about online shamers.
The actress, who is filming in ‘Baywatch,’ alongside Zac Efron and Dwayne Johnson, appeared on the opinion driven talk show The View, and was candour personified, when she was quizzed on her adolescence.
PeeCee, who had spent her teenage years in Massachusetts and New York, had often felt left out, which she believes, was further owing to her being ‘different’.
But then, she has revealed that she worked on herself and has figured out what she needed to be, what looked best on her face. And she has credited all of this to her mother, even saying that she has wished she could be as half the woman her mother is, who does not let anyone bring her down.
This was when one of the panelists has brought up the on-going body shaming of Miss Italy runner-up Paola Torrente, for being a Plus 14 size model.
Priyanka Chopra criticized people who hide behind and speak
Priyanka then went on to add that it has actually happens to all women across demographics.
“It happens to all of us, especially in our business. You’re supposed to look a certain way, to dress a certain way. You get the pressure from everyone around saying, ‘You used to fit into the dress last month and not anymore’. You know people have reasons. Your body reacts a certain way.”
Another panelist, also at this juncture, rightfully opined that a lot of body shaming occurs online, saying people have a habit to hide behind such profiles and say whatever they want.
Priyanka has strongly condemned the same, saying, “It’s such a cowardice. And there’s this beautiful button online called ‘Block’. Just use it very often’.
Well, Priyanka being a strong lady that she is, sure does know how to deal with the likes of internet body shamers. We might note down a point or two!
