Priyanka Chopra On Facing Racism In The US: Reveals Was Told To “Go Back To Your Country And Get Gang-Raped”
Priyanka Chopra Jonas is in the news lately after the launch of her memoir titled Unfinished. In the book, she has shared some hidden details of her personal life which many of us were unaware of until we read the book. The actress, who has made her mark in both Bollywood and Hollywood, turned author for the book, which is doing fantastically well with her fans. She has revealed many of her personal life details from her youth, childhood, and teenage life.
In her memoir, Priyanka Chopra also opened up about her journey to Hollywood. The actress revealed that she was asked to go back to India and get gang-raped. Priyanka revealed that her excitement of having her first song debut in the United States on such a huge platform was destroyed by a storm of explicitly racist hate mail and tweets.
She wrote, “I remember the thrill of turning on the television the first night it aired and seeing myself introducing the game in a prerecorded announcement, and then watching the upbeat ‘In My City’ promo video along with the millions of others who were tuned in. From where I sat, there was no better way for me and my music to be introduced to mainstream America than through an NFL weekly spot. #GameOn!”
She further wrote, “My bubble was quickly burst. The excitement of having my first song debut in the United States on such a huge platform was destroyed by a storm of explicitly racist hate mail and tweets, including – among many, many examples to choose from – ‘What’s a brown terrorist doing promoting an all-Americal game?’ and ‘Go back to the Middle East and put your burka on’ and-years later it’s still hard to write this – ‘Go back to your country and get gang-raped.”
