Priyanka Chopra & Nick Jonas accused of animal cruelty by PETA
After a section of social media users cracked down on the use of firecrackers at the wedding celebrations of Bollywood star Priyanka Chopra and American singer Nick Jonas in Jodhpur, animal rights organization PETA has raised a concern about the use of a horse and elephant at their nuptials. Nick is said to have arrived on a horseback for the wedding.
The post by People for Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) was backed by a video titled “Band, Baaja, Brutality”, and showcased what horses go through when they are used at weddings.
According to PETA India CEO Manilal Valliyate, “Priyanka has been ill served by not being advised of the firestorm that would be caused by participating in animal abuse”.
“It doesn’t make a person look big or glamorous to promote cruelty to animals who has no choice but to serve. It makes them look small. Overwhelmingly, these days PETA is delighted to see so many celebrities feel passionately about protecting animals,” Valliyate said in a statement to IANS. Netizens pointed at “double standards” as around Diwali this year, Priyanka, who is asthmatic herself, had urged people to follow the ‘Less pollution, more laddoos’ policy for the festival of fights.
