Recently Priyanka Chopra’s mother Madhu Chopra was invited at a college event in Mumbai, where she was quizzed about what she has to say on the social media trolling that was done to Priyanka, for wearing her bold & beautiful Ralph and Russo gown at the Grammys.
Madhu Chopra reacting upon the same said, “I am glad it happened because I feel it made her stronger, that she lives life on her own terms. It is her body, she can do what she wants and she is a beautiful one. I also sent her a saying that said ‘It is my life’ whose life am I living’ Yours or mine’ I can do what I want with my life. Trolls are anonymous people hiding behind their computers who don’t have joys in their life. I feel like they get attention by saying bad things, they don’t mean to say bad things, but they get attention.” She further added, “I don’t give much heed to the troller. I loved the dress and she showed me a sample before she wore it. I thought it was a little risk but she carried it off well and she was one of the best dressed.”
Designer Wendell Rodricks on his social media account shared a photo of Priyanka in her Grammys’ outfit and wrote, “The neckline goes all the way from LA to Cuba.” This comment made by the designer didn’t go down well among the fans. The designer soon shared another close-up picture of Priyanka and Nick along with an explanation that his comment was not meant to body shame Priyanka, but it was more about shaming the designers’ creation.
Wendell wrote, “For all those that said some really nasty things about me body shaming, here is my retort. Did I say anything about her body? No. Many women did. I just said the dress was wrong for her despite it being couture. It was more dress shaming than body shaming. Stop this sermon from high and read the post before you speak. There is an age to wear some clothes. Men with huge bellies should not wear tight T shirts. Same with women who wear minis past a certain age. If you don’t have it, don’t flaunt it. I stopped wearing Bermudas as I have a few varicose veins. Don’t make every issue body shaming, sexist or whatever. Or you can be false and fake resorting to being politically correct and not be truthful. If you don’t like my posts unfriend me.”
Priyanka’s mom Madhu Chopra on Twitter reacted to the designer’s comment and wrote, “Wendel Rodricks afraid to admit he was body shaming Priyanka. Such a fake! He covers his legs cos he has varicose veins. Will ge cover his fave with hijab when he wrinkles up????”
