"To the Chopra wife, I apologise too."
Priyanka Chopra has hit back at Rosie O’Donnell’s apology after the comedian referred to the actress as Nick Jonas’s ‘wife’.
Rosie also assumed that the actress was author Deepak Chopra’s daughter.
The US comedian was forced to issue an apology after she revealed she recently approached Nick Jonas and Priyanka.
‘Embarrassing’ her son and his girlfriend, Rosie took to TikTok to set the record straight.
However, she didn’t mention Priyanka’s name and referred to her as “someone Chopra” and then “the Chopra wife”.
After being called out for her initial apology, she insisted she knew Priyanka’s name.
In what appeared to be a dig at Rosie’s post, Priyanka shared “some thoughts” in which she suggested her name be Googled.
Priyanka also suggested that she should have been reached out to directly.
In her note, she began: “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.”
Not mentioning Rosie’s name explicitly, Priyanka went on:
“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’, especially in a sincere apology.
“If we can learn to respect our differences authentically, the world we raise our children in will be amazing.”
Priyanka Chopra added:
“Also PS – 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.”
In her earlier TikToks, Rosie explained: “Seated next to us at Malibu Nobu was Nick Jonas and his wife, someone Chopra.
“Who I always assumed was Deepak Chopra’s daughter.”
Rosie continued: “Didn’t you think Nick Jonas was married to Deepak Chopra’s daughter?
“Am I the only one who thought that?”
Apologising, Rosie went on: “Nick Jonas, I apologise and to the Chopra wife, I apologise too.”
In a later TikTok, Rosie said:
“I’m reading the comments about Nick Jonas and his wife Priyanka Chopra, who I mistakenly thought was Deepak’s daughter.
“And people thought that she was rude, she wasn’t rude, it was just awkward.
“I’m sure she gets sick of that. I’m sure I’m not the only one.”
“She’s a very well-known actress and more famous than him, people were saying.”
She added: “Priyanka is her name, I hope I’m pronouncing that right.
“I just want to apologise to her and to everyone who thought it was inappropriate of me.
“Sorry, sometimes I f**k up.”
