The comedian joked about Chopra's American accent on Twitter. While the actress took it lightly, her fans were in no such mood.

Stand-up comedian Tanmay Bhat just can't catch a break. The comedian was simply trying to be himself when he cracked a joke on Priyanka Chopra, but not everybody got it.
When I say @priyankachopra's name in my head I now automatically pronounce it like "Priyaaaanka Chopruh"— Tanmay Bhat (@thetanmay) July 27, 2016
Ever the social media queen, Chopra slayed it with her response as she tweeted back, 'I am supposed to have an accent, what happened to you?'
Not just us, but even Bhat was impressed by PC's witty retort!
Though it was all fun and games between the two, the rest of Twitter and PC fans could not handle it. Soon, the comedian's timeline was flooded with comments like these.

wo to theek hai,
wo Lata didi wala lafda finished ?
The joke was probably meant as a compliment to Chopra's growing popularity in the US and the rest of the world. Bhat couldn't help but plead it was meant in good humour.
PC fans, kyu mujhpe chadh rahe ho, it was meant to be a compliment what is wrong with some of you smh— Tanmay Bhat (@thetanmay) July 27, 2016
It would have got worse, but Chopra stepped in herself. Guess tweeple need to take a cue from Chopra's sense of humour and sass.
You have to admit, the lady's got class!
