Priyanka Chopra has apologized for wearing a shirt that some people on Twitter perceived as being insensitive towards refugees. The Quantico actress is featured on the October/November cover of Condé Nast Traveller magazine; the Indian publication's sixth annual Indian edition was released Oct. 7. The cover shows the TV star modeling a white tank top, which has the words "refugee," "immigrant" and "outsider" crossed out, and the only remaining word is "traveller."
When the cover was published online Oct. 10, its editors explained the meaning behind Chopra's top. "At Condé Nast Traveller, we believe that the opening up of borders and the breaking down of walls can help us discover the world, and open up our minds and hearts," the magazine said. "So, when we had actor Priyanka Chopra wear a T-shirt we created on the cover of the sixth anniversary issue, we had a point to make. It's about how our labeling of people as immigrants, refugees and outsiders is creating a culture of xenophobia."
