Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra Accused of Animal Abuse at Wedding

by at .

To most observers, Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra are an adorable couple who is totally in love and who will be together forever.

These fans were thrilled to see the stars get married last weekend.

To PETA, however?

To an organization that lives to call out celebrities in order to further its animal rights agenda?

Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra are disrespectful abusers who deserve to be shamed for what transpired on their big day.

You see... the singe/actor and his bride actually wed in two ceremonies on Saturday: one Western and one traditional Hindu.

This is typical for a couple that hails from divergent ethnic and religious backgrounds; and it's really pretty sweet, being emblematic of two traditions being melded into one for all of eternity.

But try telling that to the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.

Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas: Married!

A fan site shared a photo shortly after the Hindu-inspired ceremony of a white horse outfitted in red and gold, which Jonas used to make his grand entrance.

There was also a white elephant with seat for two on its back present at the event.

In response to the sight of these animals being used in such a manner, PETA has released the following statement:

Priyanka was ill-served by not being advised of the firestorm that would be caused by participating in animal abuse.

It doesn’t make a person look big or glamorous to promote cruelty to animals who have no choice but to serve. It makes them look small.

this is the horse

Now, look, we love animals here at The Hollywood Gossip.

Really, we do.

We've been tearing up over this George H.W. Bush service dog photo for the last 24 hours straight.

We're all for PETA's overall mission of protecting four-legged creatures and of ensuring that the world is a safe place for horses, cows, birds, canines, cats.

Heck, every type of animal!

We're just not sure if slamming newlyweds for alleged "animal abuse" is really the way to accomplish their goal.

The same way we weren't sure about comparing meat-eating to rape back in the day.

They Will! Together!

The group even acknowledged in this same statement that stars across the globe are generally very positive role models when it comes to their treatment of animals.

“Overwhelmingly, these days, PETA is delighted to see so many celebrities who feel passionately about protecting animals," PETA wrote.

We're guessing Nick and Priyanka should be included in this group.

Riding a horse a few feet to honor your religion's tradition is not a form of animal abuse.

It's just not.
