Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas’ Christian wedding at the Umaid Bhawan Palace on December 1 was followed by a glorious display of fireworks. The grand display on their happiest day, though, was followed up with a barrage of criticisms and didn’t really sit well for many social media users. While many fans congratulated the newlyweds and were in awe of their vibrant Sangeet and Mehendi pictures, Twitterati were also quick to lash out at the actress for bursting firecrackers that was said to have lit up the Jodhpur sky for hours.
Social media users have slammed the Quantico actor and called it sheer hypocrisy on her part as she was the face of the anti-pollution campaign during Diwali.

To make the matter even worse, Twitterati also went back to the time when Priyanka had taken a stand just a few weeks before Diwali stating that it makes life difficult for asthma patients. Priyanka herself is been said to have been suffering from asthma since childhood.
When people slammed Priyanka on social media, an all-out war broke out between many users. One user slammed the hypocrisy comment from several people by saying, “Crackers fired in wedding of Bollywood Celebrities are secular in nature and doesn't cause pollution”. Instantly, another one wrote, “They are all "Made in Bollywood" with a potent mixture of Hypocrisy. On bursting, Cures Asthma Instantly’’.
Social media has been flooded with comments, jokes and memes on inventing green crackers and generating oxygen by bursting them.
