Priyanka Chopra stirred a storm on the internet when she shared photos from her appearance at the Grammy Awards 2020. Dressed in a Ralph and Russo ivory ensemble, Priyanka was accompanied by her American singer husband Nick Jonas. Soon after the pictures surfaced online, she was showered with compliments. There was, however, an army of people who trolled her for baring it all at the red carpet. Designer Wendell Rodricks commented sarcastically on Priyanka’s outfit: “@priyankachopra nailed it at the Grammys 2020. Truly the bold and beautiful in this @ralphandrusso couture fringed gown where the neckline goes all the way from LA to Cuba. Love it.”
This is not the first time that the Priyanka Chopra has been brutally trolled by the netizens, which is why, she didn’t react to them. But actress Suchitra Krishnamoorthi and Canadian TV actor Kaitlyn Bristowe of The Bachelorette fame came out in support of her.
Replying to his post, Suchitra Krishnamoorthi penned down a long note appreciating the actress’ choice of not hiding her belly with her clutch and also for send out a statement that today’s women are bold and beautiful. She wrote, “Was so upset to see this post on insta by Wendel Rodrigues who’s work I otherwise have a modicum of respect for. I think the fact that Priyanka is not trying to hide her belly with her clutch is what makes this pic so beautiful. Makes her the rockstar she is. Her confidence an inspiration to every woman. Women have been so enslaven by men’s opinion of how women should look this photograph of Priyanka to me at the world’s most publicized event is the height of liberation. You go girl and keep rocking it. I was never a fan of the lady but this pic has surely made me one.”
She added, “So dear men. We are not ur pre pubescent hipless perverted fantasy or your teenage gay boy flat chested contortion. We are real women, we have breasts, we have fat we have water retention and we rock and roll.”
On the other hand, Kaitlyn responded to the trolls on Priyanka’s photo shared by the People Magazine and wrote, “Beautiful powerful women. Disgusting comments from sad women.” On the mentioned post, trolls have called PeeCee an ‘embarrassment’ and that she puts ‘Indian women to shame’.
Soon after this, Wendell Rodricks clarified his statement with a long post on Instagram. He wrote, For all those that said some really nasty things about me body shaming, here is my retort. Did I say anything about her body? No. Many women did. I just said the dress was wrong for her despite it being couture. It was more dress shaming than body shaming. Stop this sermon from high and read the post before you speak. There is an age to wear some clothes. "
Nevertheless, PeeCee knows exactly how to deal with these trolls. She always gives it back to them with her work or another dynamic style statement. We are waiting for it now!
