Alexandra “Alex” Cooper, the 28-year-old social media personality known for her podcast Call Her Daddy recently invited Priyanka Chopra Jonas for an episode where the Indian actress opened up about her recent filmography, her experience as a former Miss World and the bullying she faced in her time in American high-schools.
Cooper herself nodded in agreement with Chopra, detailing her own experiences with bullying. But now, Cooper’s critics on social media platforms like TikTok and Twitter are pointing out Cooper’s hypocrisy given how she herself had indulged in a rather nasty discussion over Chopra and her musician husband Nick Jonas.
I wonder if PC knew about this before she went on Call Her Daddy podcast. In 2020, the hosts called PC & Nick ugly, disgusting, and Priyanka, a lesbian Alex Cooper, also laughs at how Priyanka is physically bigger than him #PriyankaChopra #CitadelOnPrime #NickJonas pic.twitter.com/3nDeda2EqE— Nolandsman (@nolandsman_) May 14, 2023
First started in 2018, Call Her Daddy used to be a two-woman effort with Cooper joined by co-host Sofia Franklyn. Even though Franklyn has called it quits with the podcast, a notorious (now-deleted) episode between the two hosts has been resurrected on the Internet.
The episode mostly finds Sofia remarking on how disgusted she feels with Chopra and Jonas as a couple, even calling Chopra “a lesbian” in a derogatory sense.
The podcasting duo also ended up discussing the physical differences of the couple with Franklyn pointing out how the Love Again actress is “bigger” than the Jonas Brothers singer. Here’s one of the many demeaning comments made by Franklyn.
Cooper, who was mostly giggling along to Franklyn’s remarks, also didn’t hold back when it came to discussing their bodies.
Fast forward to 2023 and Priyanka Chopra has had a content-heavy year with her romantic comedy Love Again having just released in theatres and her thriller series Citadel streaming on Prime. But in her Call Her Daddy appearance, Chopra opened up about her troubled growing-up years in American high-schools.
From “I smell curry” to “I don’t think she had the time to shower”, Chopra was subjected to such remarks from bullies, the actress told Cooper.
While Chopra’s fans are talking about the notorious 2020 conversation between Franklyn and Cooper, the actress has herself not made any comments so far.
Some fans are disappointed in PeeCee and her PR team claiming that they didn’t research enough before accepting Cooper’s invitation.
I’d think this as well! Her team should’ve done a better job at vetting the pod before allowing her on it— michelle (@mmichellelo) May 16, 2023
As of now, Cooper and Franklyn themselves have not made any comments in response.
