Baywatch star Priyanka Chopra sure is a smooth operator. Even as the world ranted and raved over whether a magazine had photoshopped her armpits on its cover, the actor had the best response to the whole controversy.

She took to Twitter and gave us a #nofilter glimpse at her “pit-stopping” underarms without mentioning whether they have been airbrushed in the said picture or not.

After the world got over how “incredibly hot” Priyanka Chopra was looking on the cover of a men’s magazine recently, it noticed her armpits. They looked more like a newborn baby’s bottom, as a Twitter user pointed out, than human armpits.

My new cover! Thank you @maxim.india #pctopsmaximhot100 #maximhot100 @stephaniebbmakeup @tedgibson

Before you can say photoshop, there was ‘pit-a-monium’ on Twitter. Or as some are calling it, the ‘armpitsgate’. It seems when Maxim India named Baywatch star Priyanka ‘hottest woman in the world’, they decided the claim should stand all kinds of scrutiny and decided on making her perfection, armpits and all. So you see no fuzz and no folds when you look at her on the cover.

Twitter termed it “unrealistic expectation” and yet another way to body shame.

While everybody vented, the lady herself has been spending some quality time with her mother in Paris.
