Priyanka Chopra-Nick Jonas wedding: PETA accuses the couple of animal abuse
Star couple Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas tied the knot on December 1 and 2 at Jodhpur. Soon after their wedding, Priyanka was heavily trolled on Twitter for having fireworks at their wedding.
And now, People for Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) has accused the couple of animal abuse at their wedding where Nick is said to have arrived on a horseback.
PETA took to Twitter to post:
"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."
The post was backed by a video titled ‘Band, Baaja, Brutality’, in which they showed what horses go through when they are used at weddings.
PETA India CEO Manilal Valliyate, in a statement to media said, "Priyanka has been ill-served by not being advised of the firestorm that would be caused by participating in animal abuse. 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 passionately about protecting animals."
Priyanka and Nick had a three-day wedding extravaganza at Jodhpur's Umaid Bhawan Palace.
