She further added, "But I think that all of us have a, sort of, middle ground that we all have to walk. Just like you probably do as well. The way that you came at me right now... girl, don't yell. We're all here for love. Don't yell, don't embarrass yourself."

Priyanka's reply won over the netizens who praised her and called her 'savage queen'. However, the woman, who goes by the name of Ayesha Malik, has now shot out a series of tweets on social media and blamed Priyanka for turning the narrative against her and making her the "bad guy."
The woman tweeted, "Hi, I'm the girl that "yelled" at Priyanka Chopra. It was hard listening to her say, "we should be neighbors and love each other" - swing that advice over to your PM. Both India and Pakistan were in danger. And instead she tweeted out in favor for nuclear war." (sic).

It was hard listening to her say, “we should be neighbors and love each other” — swing that advice over to your PM.
Both India and Pakistan were in danger. And instead she tweeted out in favor for nuclear war.
She further wrote, "It took me back to when I couldn't reach my family because of the blackouts and how scared/helpless I was. She gaslit me and turned the narrative around on me being the "bad guy" - as a UN ambassador this was so irresponsible." (sic)
