As Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas tied the knot in a Christian wedding ceremony at Jodhpur’s Umaid Bhawan Palace on Saturday, netizens took to social media to call them out on a certain wedding celebration ritual.
A video showcasing the elaborate fireworks at the ceremony, triggered a meme-fest on social media, as Priyanka was called out for being a hypocrite. Earlier this year, Bollywood star had appeared in a commercial for Cipla’s Breathe Free, urging people to skip using firecrackers on Diwali and help her breathing unstoppable as she has asthma. Keeping this context in mind, it didn’t take long for netizens to churn out a barrage of memes with some asking her where she got the “herbal firecrackers” while others asked her to apologise.

Brands sometimes do make the mistake of choosing an ambassador who does not align with their values. Pepsi ambassador Michael Jackson reportedly never liked the soda. While it’s understandable that they were simply caught up in the moment, it really is amusing how Priyanka and her team missed this important context when they signed off on the fireworks, as this not only affects her but Breathe Free as well. We can only hope that both Priyanka and Breathe Free make wiser choices in the future.
