Chopra, Not 'Chopa': Twitter loses it after announcer mispronounces Priyanka's name

Here's how the Twitter reacted

Entertainment Desk September 18, 2017

Priyanka Chopra, looked pretty damn flawless dressed in a custom-made glittering white Balmain gown as she acquitted herself with honours while co-presenting an Emmy with Blackish actor Anthony Anderson (to John Oliver for Outstanding Variety Talk Series).

Priyanka Chopra's wardrobe to the Emmys was so understated, it actually made a statement

Same can't be said for the Emmys announcer who appeared to flub the 'Chopra' while introducing Priyanka - missing out the R and making it 'Chopa.'

While 'Priyanka Chopa' was not quite as extreme as 'Adele Dazeem,' (when John Travolta mispronounced singer Idina Menzel’s name at 2014 Oscars), Twitter is not pleased. Twitter is mightily outraged on behalf of the actress. Twitter is schooling the Emmys online.

However, this isn't the fisrt mix-up. Previously, Deepika Padukone was confused as Priyanka by paparazzi at Los Angeles airport in January. When asked to react on the confusion, Priyanka said, “I did see that and you know that’s just ignorance and it’s not right. I guess I’m the most popular brown face that everyone has known.’’

The Quantico star is currently working on two Hollywood films, Isn’t It Romantic with Rebel Wilson and Chris Hemsworth and A Kid Like Jake with Claire Danes and Jim Parsons.
