Newlywed Priyanka Chopra responds to article labelling her a 'global scam artist'

Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas

The actor married singer/actor Nick Jonas in a lavish five-day event in Jodhpur's Umaid Bhawan Palace. "These kinds of random things can't disturb it", said Priyanka Chopra as she attended the Bumble Bee launch with hubby Nick Jonas.

The biggest happiness for the bride and groom (other than getting married, of course) is to see their parents and family smiling at their wedding, and that totally happened with Priyanka and Nick. The whole piece missed the mark. The Cut is known for its liberal views on women.

It continued: "All Nick wanted was a possible fling with Hollywood's latest It Woman, but instead he wound up staring straight at a life sentence with a global scam artist".

A web archive of the article is still up, albeit with all mentions of the word "scam" deleted.

The publication faced widespread criticism by Bollywood celebrities and fans on social media.

- Jonas has long held that he prefers to date older women, so this relationship makes sense on his end. Racism and sexism has no place in the modern world and should be called out immediately. And further gives a shameful introduction of PeeCee which could be read as, "But who is Priyanka Chopra, former star of Quantico and current pride of India?"

Priyanka's brother-in-law and sister-in-law, Joe Jonas and Game of Thrones star, Sophie Turner condemned the article.

"This is disgusting", wrote Joe. What Nick and Pri have is beautiful love. "Thank u, next", wrote Joe on December 5.

The piece, published on the magazine's the Cut website, a spinoff aimed at female readers, painted Chopra, 36, as a calculating figure whose relationship with Jonas was influenced more by a desire to further her career than love. Currently, the article's page contains an apology.

TV Guide features editor Krutika Mallikarjuna noted that a good portion of the piece "was based on a lack of understanding of hindu wedding ceremonies and looking at the cultural norms of millions of people as weird and something that needs to be forced on other people".
