His tweet can be read as "@priyankachopra was kind enough to remind me of her movie credentials. They are way more extensive than I knew - I fully accept that. However, my opinion hasn't changed. But way new experience to have someone with 27,000,000 followers coming after me-many of them angry & abusive." After some hours, Peter restricted his account in order to avoid more replies and reactions from Priyanka's fans and admirers.
