A bi-monthly New Zealand based magazine, The Cut recently published an article which called Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas‘ wedding a facade. The author went on to call PeeCee a “global scam artist” and was full of racial and sexist undertones.
“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.”
“Even more upsetting, she’s a scam artist who never even took the time to make sure he was comfortable riding a horse before arranging for him to enter their wedding ceremony on horseback.”
The magazine faced a lot of backlash for spewing such negativity against Nick and Priyanka, which led them to remove the article and issue an apology. From the Bollywood fraternity, Sonam Kapoor, Sona Mohapatra and Swara Bhasker came forward to defend our desi girl and condemn the portal for being so imbecile.
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! https://t.co/bmbbX7LrAT

Deeply disgusting. To character assassinate a hardworking, driven, achiever like Priyanka Chopra in this warped,petty manner & for @TheCut to publish such a low-brow piece is the lowest of the lows. “Priyanka’s plan to make this Nick Jonas opportunity her forever bitch” ?!!? Sick https://t.co/jV6bGChwhY

This is wildly inappropriate and totally disgusting. Very disappointed that The Cut would give anyone a platform to spew such bullshit. https://t.co/iYKaifKJP6

The internet is a great tool for voicing your opinion and for being heard by several people at once, but it’s imperative to use it wisely. Spreading negativity about a couple without really knowing them on the inside is a misuse of power and one should refrain from doing that.
