American fashion stylist Law Roach reacted to superstar Priyanka Chopra's comment about someone making her cry when she was told that she was not sample sized.
This came just a few days post Law's shocking announcement about his retirement as a celebrity stylist.
Although the Citadel actress did not take any names in the revelation, Law who has styled Chopra for several red carpet events and shoots in the past gave his two cents on it.
Law was interviewed by The Cut about his sudden retirement decision and at the same time was also asked about his feelings regarding Chopra's quote.
He replied, "It was a little bit hurtful in a way that it ended up in the press, you know? Because that wasn’t the real conversation. I’ve never had that conversation with her, ever."
The 44-year-old then further revealed that his statement was taken out of context and presented to her in a certain way by the gatekeepers.
"It is her gatekeepers, how they presented what I said to her to make her feel that way. I am sure it was taken outta context to get her to be like, 'Oh, okay, I’m not working with him no more. He’s insensitive to my body.' Which I’m like, 'How is that possible? I’ve been dressing you since pre-pandemic, and it’s been nothing but great things."
"I become the bad guy because I am the one working with clothes and the body."
"I’m just talking about in general, I need to be the one to say, 'Oh, be careful because the pictures aren’t as beautiful because you coming across a little thicker than you used to be.' So they’ll say that to me or have a discussion with me but then take it back as if I was the lead in the discussion," expressed Law.
Chopra as for now has not addressed Law's clearance message.
Last week, the actress appeared on a panel at the South by Southwest film festival and there someone commented that she is not sample-sized, seemingly pointing towards the stylist.
"Someone told me yesterday that I wasn't sample-sized. I was hurt and I discussed it with my family," Chopra says via Buzzfeed.
She continues, "I cried to my husband, and my team, and I felt really bad about the fact that I'm not sample size, and that's a problem, apparently, and most of us are not."
To note sample size refers to size 0 and size 4 and most red-carpet ensembles are only available in those sizes, making it hard for people to dress up who do not fall under these categories.
