The resurfaced image comes a year after Dua sparked controversy with a tweet linked to extreme Albanian nationalists.

Last July, she released an image of a map showing the nations of Albania and Kosovo, as well as slices of neighboring countries, on a red flag emblazoned with the eagle emblem of Albania.

The banner, which advocates Albanian expansionism across the Balkans, was unfurled during a soccer match between Serbia and Albania in 2014, sparking a mass brawl.

Change of look: Tom Holland was involved in the conversation

The tweet was accompanied by the word “indigenous”, which means the original inhabitants of a country, opposed to the settlers. This suggests that the Kosovar-Albanians are indigenous to the region, a claim refuted by the Serbs.

Kosovo declared independence from Serbia in 2008, becoming the youngest country in Europe, more than a decade after NATO bombed Yugoslavia.

Albanian nationalists claim that they colonized the country before the Serbs, so for them Kosovo is a country of ethnic Albanians.
