Priyanka Chopra Jonas broke her silence on Rosie O’Donnell’s public apology.
The TV host had mistaken Priyanka for someone else during their recent encounter.
The actress went on Instagram and shared her message: “I have never taken myself so seriously to think everyone would know who I am, or my work for that matter.”
Priyanka continued: “But if you wanted to make a public apology for a very awkward private encounter, I think probably best to take the time to google my name before doing it or even try to reach out directly.”
She added: “We ALL deserve to be respected for our unique individuality and not be referred to as 'someone' or 'wife' especially in a sincere apology.”
Priyanka explained once again that “not all Chopra's are related to the great Deepak, just as not all Smith's are related to the legendary Will Smith.”
O’Donnell’s apology seemed insincere to Priyanka when the comedian referred to the actress as “the Chopra wife.”
However, she corrected her mistake in her second apology.
O’Donnell said in a different TikTok video: “Priyanka is her name. Priyanka — I hope I'm pronouncing that right. I just want to apologize to her and to everyone who thought that it was really inappropriate of me. Sorry, sometimes I f--- up.”
