New Delhi (Sputnik): Indian-American actress Priyanka Chopra, who is currently in India for the release of her film The Sky is Pink, has invited a social media backlash over her personal political opinions, following her tweet congratulation Greta Thunberg for her fiery speech at the UN Climate Summit.

Swedish teen Greta Thunberg on 24 September amazed people across the world with her passionate speech chastising the world leaders for their failure to take decisive steps to thwart the climate crisis at the UN General Assembly meeting in New York, which she called a “betrayal”.

Joining the chorus with several international celebrities and prominent personalities, the Baywatch actress Priyanka lent her support to the 16-year-old Greta, saying it was a “much needed punch in the face”.

However, little did she realise that her tweet would kick-start a trolling fest by netizens, who went tongs and hammer on her for her lavish lifestyle and called her a “hypocrite”.

Many took a sarcastic dig at the actress and reminded her of earlier controversy when she was photographed smoking a cigarette during a vacation in Miami while serving as a campaigner for asthma awareness in India.

Another trolled the actress by sharing her picture from her youthful days and compared it to her current picture, saying “It’s time to ban plastic beauties”.

On professional front, Priyanka is gearing up for the release of her film “The Sky is Pink”, scheduled to release on 11 October.
