Over the weekend, Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas tied the knot as per Christian and Hindu traditionals. Later, the couple shared beautiful pictures from their wedding festivities. However, there was one ceremonial ritual which didn't go down well with animal rights organization, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA).
The organization took to their Twitter handle and slammed the couple for using elephants and horses during their wedding nuptials. For the Indian wedding, Nick reportedly arrived on a 'ghodi' with a full 'baaraat'.
PETA India shared a video titled "Band, Baaja, Brutality", that showcased what horses go through when they are used at weddings.

PETA India Accuses Priyanka- Nick Of Promoting Animal Cruelty
PETA India posted on Twitter, "Dear Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas. Elephants for weddings live in chains and horses are controlled with whips, spiked bits. People are rejecting elephant rides and having horse-free weddings. Congrats, but we regret it was not a happy day for animals."
Are You Listening PeeCee?
In a statement to IANS, PETA India CEO Manilal Valliyate said, "Priyanka has been ill-served by not being advised of the firestorm that would be caused by participating in animal abuse".
Promoting Cruelty To Animals Doesn't Make A Person Look Big Or Glamorous
The statement further read, "It doesn't make a person look big or glamorous to promote cruelty to animals who have no choice but to serve. It makes them look small. Overwhelmingly, these days PETA is delighted to see so many celebrities feel passionate about protecting animals."
