USA magazine deletes article calling Priyanka Chopra a 'scam artist'


NY magazine's women lifestyle section The Cut has deleted an article on Indian actress Priyanka Chopra's marriage to United States musician Nick Jonas at the weekend following claims that it was "racist" and "bizarre". Columnist Riah has gone to the extent of writing that Nick is in a fraudulent relationship against his will.

"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", the author wrote.

Actresses Sonam Kapoor, Swara Bhasker, Sona Mohapatra called the article disgusting, racist, sexist and baseless.

After spending some time in Delhi for a red carpet appearance, the newlyweds were spotted arriving at an airport in Mumbai where they got married over the weekend and will host another wedding reception.

One article from The Cut, the women's lifestyle arm of New York Magazine, went a step further in criticizing the couple's relationship. "We've removed it and apologize", The Cut tweeted. I'm in a happy place at this moment. After a joyful mehendi and a spectacular sangeet, the two were Wednesday in two consecutive ceremonies, one according to Christian traditions and the other honouring Hindu traditions.

Both Priyanka's new brother-in-law, Joe Jonas, and his fiancée Sophie Turner, have responded to the article on Twitter. @TheCut should be ashamed to have someone write such evil words. "These kinds of random things can't disturb it".

At the event, Pri and Nick radiated happiness as they posed for red carpet photos and stared lovingly at each other. Also it's written by a woman which is so sad. "We've removed it and apologise". It reeks of envy and bitterness. 'Very disappointed that The Cut would give anyone a platform to spew such bulls-t'.

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".
