Dubai chef Atul Kochhar, who is working with the Dubai JW Marriott Marquis has been terminated by the hotel, said in an official statement released by the hotel. JW Marriott Marquis in Dubai released a termination letter after Kochhar made Islamophobic remarks in response to a tweet posted by Priyanka Chopra.
There is no justification for my tweet, a major error made in the heat of the moment on Sunday. I fully recognise my inaccuracies that Islam was founded around 1,400 years ago and I sincerely apologise. I am not Islamophobic, I deeply regret my comments that have offended many.
