Priyanka Chopra received rape threats and racist remarks when she debut as singer in US
Priyanka Chopra released a memoir named ‘Unfinished’ on February 9, 2021.
Actress Priyanka Chopra opens up about the racisim she faced in the United States when she debut with ‘In My City.’ The actress revealed that the haters sent her hate mails with rape threats and racist remarks.
Recently, she released memoir ‘Unfinished,’ in which she writes, “I remember the thrill of turning on the television the first night it aired and seeing myself introducing the game in a prerecorded announcement, and then watching the upbeat ‘In My City’ promo video along with the millions of others who were tuned in. From where I sat, there was no better way for me and my music to be introduced to mainstream America than through an NFL weekly spot. #GameOn!”
She further writes, “My bubble was quickly burst. The excitement of having my first song debut in the United States on such a huge platform was completely destroyed by a storm of explicitly racist hate mail and tweets, including – among many, many examples to choose from – ‘What’s a brown terrorist doing promoting an all-Americal game?’ and ‘Go back to the Middle East and put your burka on’ and-years later it’s still hard to write this – ‘Go back to your country and get gang-raped.'”
‘Unfinished’ was published by Penguin Random House India, which was released on February 9. ‘Unfinished’ talks about where Priyanka was raised by her grandparents and her parents to being sent to boarding school at an early age.
She also talks about how she lived her teenage years in US with her extended family in the Midwest (Cedar Rapids and Indianapolis), Queens, and suburban Boston, where she endured bouts of racism; her return to India, where she won national (Miss India) and international (Miss World) beauty pagents and her debut in acting career.
