Quantico is an American series featuring Priyanka Chopra in the lead role. Recently an episode of the drama series displayed how some Hindu terrorists tried to blow up Manhattan and tried to frame it on Pakistan. Well, Indians are not at all happy with Priyanka for doing a show where Indians were depicted as terrorists.
After immense backlash, Quantico producer and broadcaster ABC and Priyanka were forced to give a public apology.
Here is what Priyanka tweeted, “I’m extremely saddened and sorry that some sentiments have been hurt by a recent episode of Quantico. That was not and would never be my intention. I sincerely apologize. I’m a proud Indian and that will never change.”
A spokesperson of ABC studios said, “ABC Studios and the executive producers of Quantico would like to extend an apology to our audience who were offended by the most recent episode, The Blood of Romeo. The episode has stirred a lot of emotion, much of which is unfairly aimed at Priyanka Chopra, who didn’t create the show, nor does she write or direct it.”
Here is what Indians had to say after these apologies.
“Priyanka Chopra I am proud Indian .But money is money please understand.”

People are calling Priyanka a traitor and asking that she should be sent to Pakistan.
“Your apology has no meaning
@priyankachopra We reject it. You read the script then u memorize the script and then u shoot the episode and u mean to say you never realized what u saying? Shame on you We will never ever watch your any film, past or future”
“Money is everything for you
@priyankachopra and you betrayed India for that, You easily accepted “Hindu Terror” plot, shame on you. We’ll Never forget, never forgive.”
@BeingSalmanKhan Ji , Please re-think on your decision of casting @priyankachopra as the main female lead on your upcoming mega budget film BHARAT . She doesn’t deserve to work with any Bollywood superstar and that too in a film with the title ‘BHARAT’”
A proper apology should have looked like this @priyankachopra.
This arrogance of portraying #Hindus badly comes with the confidence that they will not retaliate… as some would have done..#7thHinduAdhiveshan#Quantico#AntiHindu #PriyankaChopra#BoycottPriyankaChopra pic.twitter.com/DkTsmgSgBl
