New Delhi:

American comedienne Rosie O’Donnell has apologized to Priyanka Chopra after an awkward meeting in which she assumed Priyanka was the daughter of author and alternative medicine advocate Deepak Chopra. The apology itself is cringe-inducing, as is Ms. O’Donnell’s story about the exchange with Priyanka, who was at a restaurant with husband Nick Jonas when Rose O’Donnell approached them. In the first of two videos she shared on her Instagram, Ms. O’Donnell describes going to Nick Jonas and his wife, “something Chopra says (her own words)”, and Priyanka says she knew her father. “Who is my father?” Priyanka asked. Deepak Chopra, Rosie O’Donnell answered and got a frosty answer – no, Priyanka said, adding that Chopra is a common Indian surname.

Rosie O’Donnell apologized to Nick Jonas for some reason in this video and made it worse by calling Priyanka “Chopra’s wife.” Watch her video here.

In a second video, Rosie O’Donnell makes it clear that she still doesn’t know who Priyanka is and explains that comments on the previous video suggested the actress had been rude to her and clarified that she hadn’t. “People thought she was rude, but she wasn’t rude, it was just awkward. She’s apparently a very well-known actress and more famous than him (Nick) people said. So I’m sure it felt weird for her to be with you.” Anyway, Priyanka is her name. And I want to apologize to her and to anyone who thought it was inappropriate of me,” said Ms. O’Donnell, clearly not understanding The Matrix Resurrections in which Priyanka plays an important role.

She made no apologies for calling Priyanka “something Chopra” and “Chopra’s wife.” Watch her video here.

Rosie O’Donnell is just the latest in a line of people Priyanka has underestimated or otherwise rejected Chopra. Last December, she taught the Daily Mail, which described her as “Nick Jonas’s wife.” Earlier last year, she tore up an Australian journalist who wondered why Priyanka was allowed to announce the Oscar nominations. “I’d like to know what qualifies anyone. Here are my 60+ movie references for your able consideration,” Priyanka tweeted, adding a rundown of her extensive film credits.

Would love to have your opinion on what qualifies someone. Here are my 60+ movie references for your adept consideration @mrpford

Let’s not forget the journalist who wrote an article for The Cut after Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas got married in 2018 – in it she called Priyanka “a global con man” and suggested that Nick was drawn into a “fraudulent relationship against his will”. †

The Cut removed the article after it was laughed at and the journalist who wrote it apologized. Priyanka has also been confused with Yukta Mookhey – both of them won the Miss World pageant – by an American network.

Priyanka Chopra, whose international credits include: Quantico, isn’t it romantic, Baywatch? and Netflix’s The White Tigerrecently welcomed a baby girl with Nick Jonas.
