Ayesha Malik, the Pakistani-American blogger who called out Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra for encouraging war between India and Pakistan, revealed in an interview that she confronted Priyanka publicly because she wanted her voice to be heard by all.
In an interview to BBC Asian Network, Ayesha said that she was in the event with her influencer friends for meet and greet session and that she was doing her job when Priyanka’s fake and hypocrite statement triggered her to take a dig at her.
“Here’s this woman [Priyanka] who I’ve invited into my home dozens of times through Bollywood films and it was so weird I was in the same vicinity as her. Too bad I wasn’t a fan anymore. I started walking towards other side of convention floor to meet my friends and that’s when she said. ‘I’m a humanitarian and we should love our neighbours,’ I got triggered so hard then,” Ayesha said.
The blogger revealed she looked at the pamphlet about Priyanka’s speaking points during her Beauty Con appearance. She was amazed to find out the star was meant to shed light on social responsibility online. “That is so ironic because she’s actually the most irresponsible person online with a platform that big,” she said.
Ayesha lashing out at Priyanka at Beauty Con became global news when she called out Priyanka for her ‘war mongering’ Twitter post . She posted ‘Jai Hind! Indian Armed Forces’ tweet that was shared during the escalated nuclear tensions between India and Pakistan.
