Mia Khalifa Questions Priyanka Chopra’s Silence On Farmers’ Protest: “She’s Giving Shakira During Beirut Devastation Vibes”
The farmers’ protest in India has gained the international spotlight and many celebs from across the globe are raising their voice to get the much-needed attention to this largest human protest. It started with pop star Rihanna tweeting about the protest along with an article. Later, many other celebs like Greta Thunberg, Meena Harris, Mia Khalifa, and others joined in. However, Indian celebs have yet been mum. This is something that Mia Khalifa questioned in one of her latest tweets. She asked the desi girl gone global Priyanka Chopra why she hasn’t spoken about the same or raised her voice.
Mia, whose opinions on the agitation have been met with backlash from certain sections, tweeted on Monday, “Is Mrs. Jonas going to chime in at any point? I’m just curious. This is very much giving me shakira during the Beirut devastation vibes. Silence.”

In December, Priyanka, quote tweeting a message from singer Diljit Dosanjh, had written, “Our farmers are India’s Food Soldiers. Their fears need to be allayed. Their hopes need to be met. As a thriving democracy, we must ensure that this crises is resolved sooner than later.”

Both Diljit and Priyanka have been attacked on social media by actor Kangana Ranaut, who has accused them of instigating the farmers. In a series of tweets, Kangana wrote, “People like @diljitdosanjh and @priyankachopra will be hailed by the left media for misleading and encouraging farmers protests, pro Islamists and anti India film industry and brands will flood them with offers and English/living in colonial hangover media houses will felicitate them with awards, the problem is whole system is designed to make anti nationals flourish and grow and we are too less in numbers against a corrupt system, but I am sure magic will happen in every fight of GOOD versus EVIL, evil has been much stronger, JAI SHRI RAM.”
