Days after her dreamy wedding with Nick Jonas at Umaid Bhawan Palace, Jodhpur, Priyanka Chopra was accused of being \'global scam artist\' by an article in The Cut, an offshoot of the New York Magazine.
The piece, titled \'Is Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas\' Love for Real?\' slammed Priyanka Chopra and said that she had "defrauded" Nick Jonas into a "fraudulent" relationship.There were furious reactions as the writer accused Priyanka of being a \'global scam artist\' and that Nick married her against his will.
The publication finally took the article down, but not after people around the globe expressed their shock and fury at its sexist and racist content. The Cut tried \'updating\' it and toning it down, but it still did not cut it.
After that, The Cut tweeted an apology saying, "An earlier story about Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas did not meet our standards. We\'ve removed it and apologize." The same lines greet a reader on the link to the article too now. You can see screenshots from The Cut\'s now-removed article here.

Asked about this in an interview, Madhu Chopra responded coolly, "It is a happy phase for our family, and we don\'t want to be disturbed by such idiotic things. I am happy that my daughter is married to someone she truly loves. I don\'t want to give publicity to those fools. There are some donkeys who do anything they feel like, but their actions don\'t affect us."
When Priyanka was asked about this at an event in Delhi, she said subtly, "I don\'t even want to react or comment. It\'s not even in my stratosphere. I\'m in a happy place at this moment. These kinds of random things can\'t disturb it."
Priyanka\'s in-laws stood up for her, as well. Nick\'s brother Joe Jonas and his fiancée and Game Of Thrones star Sophie Turner also slammed the publication.
Joe wrote, "This is disgusting. @TheCut should be ashamed to have someone write such evil words. What Nick & Pri have is Beautiful Love. Thank u, Next."
Sophie tweeted, "This is wildly inappropriate and totally disgusting. Very disappointed that The Cut would give anyone a platform to spew such bullshit."
Many from Bollywood stood up for PeeCee.
Sonam tweeted, "For a publication that "shows women\'s what they are made of" @TheCut has a lot to answer for . The article on @priyankachopra was sexist , racist and disgusting. Also it\'s written by a woman which is so sad. It reeks of envy and bitterness. @mRiah shame on you!"
Nick and Priyanka got married in a fairytale wedding at Umaid Bhawan Palace, Jodhpur. On December 1, they had a Christian wedding, and on December 2, they had a Hindu wedding ceremony.
