Priyanka Chopra recently caused a furore over her t-shirt on the cover page of Condé Nast Traveller India. The white t-shirt had the words 'Refugee, Immigrant, Outsider' being striked off in red and also had the word 'traveller' at the bottom. This did not go down well with people as they found the magazine insensitive to the global refugee crisis and for cashing in on it.
However, Priyanka Chopra apologised for the t-shirt row by saying, "They (Condé Nast) specially got this (t-shirt) made and implored me to wear it. They said they were addressing xenophobia which is a big issue that is happening. So their idea was that. And I bought into it, I guess. And I am really, really apologetic about the fact that sentiments were hurt ... The point the magazine wanted to make was actually something good."
