While in Berlin recently to promote her film Baywatch, Priyanka Chopra visited the Holocaust Memorial with her brother. A memorial to the 6 million Jews who were killed and buried in mass graves during Hitler’s reign, the 2,711 stone slabs are a place meant for memories and reflection.

However, when Priyanka posted selfies from the memorial, Twitter was unimpressed because posing for selfies at the memorial is disrespectful.

The actress first made an Instagram story and then posted selfies with her brother on Twitter from the historical site. Soon Twitter was full of comments questioning her decision.

Priyanka Chopra took note of the backlash and removed all the pictures.
