Earlier in the week, A-list couple Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas were out for dinner and ran into comedian Rosie O’Donnell. The encounter soon turned awkward and O’Donnell managed to make it even more awkward by publically apologising to “someone Chopra”.
Dinner with a side of awkwardness
During the encounter in Malibu, O’Donnell told Chopra that she knew her dad. But, sadly, Priyanka Chopra’s father died in 2013 after battling cancer.
And to make matters worse – O’Donnell did actually not know her father at all and thought her father was the well-known self-help author Deepak Chopra.
The comedian later explained the incident on TikTok and apologised but she failed to do one thing – mention Priyanka’s name. Instead, she was more focused on apologising to Jonas.
“I had one job I messed it up all right, so Nick Jonas I apologise, and to the Chopra wife … I apologise too,” O’Donnell said after earlier only referring to her as Jonas’ wife and “someone Chopra”.

Priyanka has the perfect response
On Thursday, Chopra decided to share “some thoughts” on her Instagram story and managed to have the perfect response to the incident.
“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,” she wrote without naming O’Donnell.
“We ALL deserve to be respected for our unique individuality and to not be referred to as ‘someone’ or ‘wife’, especially in a sincere apology.”
Even O’Donnell’s fans on TikTok called her out for not learning Chopra’s name before making the video.
“I mean, the device for making TikToks also has Google,” one wrote.
O’Donnell responded to Chopra’s thoughts with another TikTok video, this time apologising to Priyanka a bit more sincerely.
“Priyanka is her name. I hope I’m pronouncing that right. I just want to apologise to her and everyone who thought that it was really inappropriate of me. Sometimes I f**k up,” she said in the video.
The comedian captioned the video “shoulda googled b4 I tiktok ed”.
