Comedian Rosie O’Donnell Apologises For The Second Time
Soon after calling Priyanka Chopra 'someone' Chopra, the US comedian made another video on her Tik Tok to apologise to her. In her video, she said that she mistakenly thought that she was Deepak Chopra's daughter and it was awkward. She further said that she is sure she is not the only one who thought that. She said, "I'm sure she gets sick of that, I'm sure I'm not the only one. According to the comments, a lot of people thought that too, but she's apparently a very well-known actress and apparently more famous than him people are saying, so I'm sure it felt weird to begin with."

Priyanka Chopra Reacts To Comedian Rosie O’Donnell's Apology
After the comedian's apology video went viral, Priyanka Chopra took to her Instagram handle and broke her silence on this awkward encounter. She wrote, "Hi everyone. Some thoughts. I have never taken myself so seriously to think everyone would know who I am, or my work for that matter. But if you wanted to make a public apology for a very awkward private encounter, I think probably best to take the time to google my name before doing it or even try to reach out directly."
“We ALL deserve to be respected for our unique individuality and not be referred to as “someone" or “wife" in a sincere apology. If we can learn to respect our differences in an authentic way, the world we raise our children in, will be amazing," her post further read.
Her Instagram note concluded, “As I’ve said before, not all Chopra’s are related to the great Deepak, just as not all Smith’s are related to the legendary Will Smith." Husband Nick Jonas shared a screenshot of Priyanka Chopra's Instagram post on his handle and wrote, 'Well said my love with a folding hands emoji'.
