Priyanka Chopra has apologized for wearing an insensitive ‘refugee’ tank top on the October/November cover of Condé Nast Traveller.
The Indian 34-year-old explained that the mag – which hit newsstands October 7 – was attempting to break down labels associated with xenophobia.
‘But it got misconstrued and, I mean, I’m really sorry for it. I’m sorry it was on me, and people saw it like that. But I don’t think it was their intention, and definitely not mine,’ the Quantico actress told NDTV on Monday.
‘I’m really, really apologetic about the fact that so many sentiments were hurt. I mean, that was definitely not the reason. And me, of all people! I’m someone who always stands for no labels. I’m someone who always stands for people being able to do what they have to do when they have to do it without being put in a box.’
Priyanka continued: ‘So, I was very affected. I felt really, really horrible. I think…that was never the intention.’

The strong-browed beauty was joined at Spring Studios by the 57-year-old designer as well as married couple John Legend and Chrissy Teigen.
According to TV Line, Priyanka’s show Quantico experienced a ratings low on Sunday – slipping 17 percent to just 3M viewers.
