New Delhi: Quantico star Priyanka Chopra took to  to apologize to fans offended or otherwise hurt by the depiction of Indian terrorists in an episode of the ABC drama that was aired on 1 June.

“I’m extremely saddened and sorry that some sentiments have been hurt by a recent episode of Quantico. That was not and would never be my intention. I sincerely apologise.” I’m a proud Indian and that will never change,” she tweeted.

The episode which aired on 1 June drew flak on social media, with fans questioning how Priyanka, an Indian, could even agree to be a part of the controversial plot.

The Baywatch star made her US television debut in Quantico in 2015. The drama was recently cancelled by the ABC Studios.

“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,” the Walt Disney-owned company said.

The network also offered an for the content of the episode. “ABC Studios and the executive producers of Quantico would like to extend an to our audience who were offended by the most recent episode, The Blood of Romeo, ABC Studios and the show’s producers said in a statement. “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.”

Much of the criticism, as EW points out, has been heaped on Chopra, an India-born actress, for appearing in an episode that depicts Indian people as terrorists, and that fictionalizes the real-life historical tension between the two countries as a plot point. If it helps, ABC Studios points out, Quantico has had villains of all different nationalities throughout the series.

Quantico, which was cancelled in May, will come to an end after its current third season.
