Priyanka Chopra Responds To Rosie O’Donnell: ‘Google My Name’ Before Apologizing


Priyanka Chopra Responds To Rosie O’Donnell: ‘Google My Name’ Before Apologizing

Deepak has two kids, neither of whom is Priyanka.

“We all deserve to be respected for our unique individuality and not be referred to as someone or wife, especially in a sincere apology,” says Priyanka Chopra’s response to Rosie O’ Donnell’s public apology over mistakenly thinking that 75-Year-Old Deepak Chopra was her biological father. 

The 39-Year-Old Bollywood star added in a statement posted to her Instagram Story“I have never taken myself so seriously to think everyone would know who I am or my work for that matter. But if you wanted to make a public apology for a very awkward private encounter, I think it probably best to take the time to GOOGLE MY NAME before doing it or even try to reach out directly. 

Priyanka then insisted: “If we can learn to respect our differences in an authentic way, the world we raise our children in will be amazing.”

In conclusion, the actress stated: “PS – As I’ve said before, not all Chopra’s [sic] are related to the great Deepak, just as not all Smith’s [sic] are related to the legendary Will Smith.” Priyanka’s dad, Dr. Ashok Chopra, died in June 2013. O’Donnell earlier this week got criticized online after sharing how she had assumed Deepak was Priyanka Chopra’s dad during a recent run-in with her and her husband Nick Jonas at Nobu Malibu.

In a TikTok clip [below], O’Donnell recalled: “I said, Hi Nick Jonas. You were great in Kingdom and Hi [Priyanka]. I know your dad.” She goes, “You do? Who’s my dad? And I’m like Deepak. She’s like, ‘No and Chopra is a common name. I felt so embarrassed.”

As the internet constantly does, O’Donnell was lambasted and has since issued a second apology where she said: “People thought that she was rude. She wasn’t rude. It was just awkward. I’m sure she gets sick of that. I’m sure I’m not the only one. According to the comments, a lot of people thought that, too, but she’s apparently a very well-known actress and more famous than him, people were saying. So I’m sure it felt weird to her, to begin with.”

She continued: “Anyway, Priyanka is her name. Priyanka. I hope I’m pronouncing that right. I just want to apologize to her and everyone who thought it was really inappropriate of me. Sorry, sometimes I f**k up. I did at Nobu.”
