The joke is on Priyanka Chopra Jonas. The actress is currently surrounded by fan-made memes that are flooding social media, and she’s laughing at herself.
Priyanka posted a series of memes to Instagram Stories throughout Wednesday, featuring her in an original costume shaped like a ball.
One user compared the look of Priyanka Chopra Jonas to a new pokemon named Priyankemon, while another imagined it as a ball Virat Kohli was about to catch during cricket action. Others made Priyanka blow horns, hot air balloons and parachutes in her puffy costume. Users have turned her into a green firecracker and pufferfish.
Take a look at the memes shared by Priyanka Chopra Jonas here:
A meme shared by Priyanka Chopra Jonas read, “When mum says ‘boriya bistar samet aur nikal jaa yahan se’ (when mum says ‘pack your bag and get out of here’).”
The actress thanked fans for returning her day. Priyanka Chopra wrote on her Instagram Stories: “So funny… Thanks for making my day guys.” The costume is one of many Priyanka Chopra Jonas wore during a video call with internet sensation’s dog, Tika.
In her memoir, Unfinished, Priyanka Chopra Jonas spoke of her US singing debut, “In My City,” which also starred American rapper Pitbull. The song became a hit but the responses from some of the users were not the same. She began, “I remember the excitement of turning on the television the first night it aired and seeing myself showcase the game in a pre-recorded ad, then watching the upbeat promotional video for ‘In My City’ with the millions of others who were listening. From where I was sitting, there was no better way for me and my music to be presented to mainstream America than through a weekly NFL spot. #GameOn “
She continued, “My bubble quickly burst. The excitement of making my debut in a song in the United States on such a vast platform was completely destroyed by a storm of explicitly racist hate mail and tweets, including – among many examples to choose from – “ What does a brown terrorist to promote an all-American game? and “Go back to the Middle East and put on your burka” and years later it’s still hard to write this – “Go back to your country and get gang raped.”
