Priyanka Chopra looked stunning in a white Balmain mermaid creation that she wore to the 69th Primetime Emmy Awards. However, it was not just her that grabbed all the attention on social media. The actor, who presented an award during the ceremony, was called ‘Priyanka Chopa’ by the announcer.
The Emmy announcer called Priyanka Chopra and Blackist star Anthony Anderson to present the Award for Outstanding Variety Talk Series to John Oliver, but pronounced Priyanka’s surname as Chopa, missing out the ‘R’ from Priyanka’s surname.
This however did not go down too well with her fans. The Baywatch actor’s fans took it upon themselves to school the announcer on Twitter.
Here are a few reactions on the Twitter:

Priyanka has become a global icon with her presence not only in Bollywood but Hollywood also. She has already starred in a TV show Quantico and Baywatch, the movie. She is currently working on two Hollywood films, Isn’t It Romantic with Rebel Wilson and Chris Hemsworth and A Kid Like Jake with Claire Danes and Jim Parsons.
This is her second appearance at the annual award gala. Last year, she opted for a red chiffon dress and presented an award with actor Tom Hiddleston.
