The “not so” ‘Desi Girl’ but yet a ‘Desi Girl’, Priyanka Chopra, recently came in the eyes of her trollers for her support to Black Lives Matter campaign. The bubbly actress of Bollywood has recently supported the Black Lives Matter campaign along with her husband and Hollywood star, Nick Jonas. The campaign is seen as a protest against the alleged killing of a black man, George Floyd, in New York by the city police on May 25, 2020.

Soon after PC retweeted her husband’s tweets, her trollers reminded her about the endorsement projects she took up for fairness creams. The netizens trolled her for the hypocrisy celebs display when they endorse fairness creams on one hand while supporting the Black Lives Matter campaign on the other hand. Though the Bollywood’s chulbul girl didn’t react to her trollers, her fan club seems to be on the forefront to confront her trollers.
To combat the trollers of the sizzling Bollywood actress, a PC fan club on Instagram shared a throwback interview video of the bold actress in 2015 saying no to the fairness cream endorsement. In the video, PC is heard saying that she stopped endorsing fairness creams as she didn’t like it to be right.

Social media has turned into such a negative and hateful place. It's a toxic environment I really don't want to be around anymore. People are dragging Priyanka for almost 20 years old Fairness Cream TVC when she has already addressed this issues,talked in-depth , apologized and took full responsibility for it ??? What is the point of continuing to bash her ????? This is HARASSMENT
She admitted that she did the endorsement for a year when she was at the peak time of her career when she was 21-22 year old. PC agreed that she has a dusky skin and she had thought of improving her skin complexion when she was 13. This was because, as per PC, her Punjabi family called her “kaali, kaali, kaali” jokingly.
The video shows how PC would refuse to endorse a fairness product even if she is paid a hefty amount for it. In fact, she claimed that she has been getting offers to endorse fairness products which she turns down regularly. Priyanka Chopra’s witty and candid answers in the video, for sure, seems to be a befitting reply to her trollers.
