A few days ago, a very tragic incident took place in the American city of Mania when a video of a black man being brutally killed by a police officer went viral.
George Floyd, a 46-year-old black man, can be seen in the video saying in a low voice that he is not breathing while the policeman is noticing that he is squeezing his neck with his knee until this black man dies.
The video has caused a stir in the United States and people are protesting against the killing of a black man by a police officer. Showbiz artists are also raising their voices on this heartbreaking incident. Indian actress Priyanka Chopra has also condemned the incident while posting and said that it is the responsibility of all of us to make ourselves aware of this and end this hatred. No matter where you live, no matter what the circumstances, no one deserves to die, especially because of the skin color on someone’s hands.

There is so much work to be done and it needs to starts at an individual level on a global scale. We all have a responsibility to educate ourselves and end this hate. End this race war here in the US, and around the world. Wherever you live, whatever your circumstances, NO ONE deserves to die, especially at the hands of another because of their skin color. On May 25th, George Floyd was pinned down by the neck by a Minneapolis police officer and died. He laid there, fighting for his life, struggling to breathe, and other officers just stood there and watched. The officer has now been charged with murder. George, I am praying for your family. ❤️ Text “FLOYD” to 55156 and sign the petition. #JusticeForGeorgeFloyd
However, Priyanka Chopra is being heavily criticized on social media for this post and people are calling her a hypocrite, saying that Priyanka Chopra, who spoke on the death of an American black man, is present in the oppressed Kashmiris and in her own country India. Why is it silent on the oppression of Muslims and minorities?
Priyanka Chopra is the truest definition of NRIs saying BLM but not giving a shit about the numerous Kashmiris killed by the Indian forces. pic.twitter.com/8d47kOff0l— Didi Dialectic 🌱🌈🌻 (@anuxiety_) May 29, 2020

Mukhlis Al-Muminin’s Twitter account, while exposing Priyanka’s hypocrisy, said that Priyanka Chopra wants an end to racism in the United States, but she has no problem with Islamophobic attacks in India.

A woman named Amna Khan wrote that she did not want to hate Priyanka but was forced to show her grief over the death of Priyanka’s black man.
Another user wrote that Priyanka posted about black rights in America because this post will make her popular in America. Priyanka Chopra supported military activities in India as this support would make her popular in India.
Ravi Ratan called Priyanka the biggest hypocritical actress and said that she was silent about the anti-Dalit atrocities in India but was talking about racism in the United States. Priyanka plays minority and dark colored cards in the US but sells whitening creams in India.
Priyanka must be the most hypocrite actress ever.— Ravi Ratan (@scribe_it) May 30, 2020
1. Keep quiet about anti-Dalit atrocities in India but talks about racism in US
2. Plays minority & brown card in US but sells fairness cream in India, Hardly talks about colorism/castism in Bollywood https://t.co/xh0YAWpVCl
