“The episode has stirred a lot of emotion, much of which is unfairly aimed at Priyanka Chopra, who didn’t create the show, nor does she write or direct it. She has no involvement in the casting of the show or the storylines depicted in the series,” the statement further read.

Currently into its third season, the ‘Baywatch’ star made her U.S. television debut in ‘Quantico’, which first premiered in 2015.
