Twitter Outraged Over Article Labelling Priyanka Chopra ‘Global Scam Artist’

ABC drama “Quantico” star Priyanka Chopra and US singer Nick Jonas just got married in India, the actress’s motherland, after dating for a few months.

The Cut, owned by New York Magazine, took a swing at Priyanka Chopra and questioned her romantic relationship with singer Nick Jonas, having called the Indian actress a “global scam artist”.

“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.

The author of the article, titled “Is Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas’s Love for Real?”, assumed that Chopra’s marriage to Jonas is purely a publicity stunt:

“That’s right: Nicholas Jonas married into a fraudulent relationship against his will this past Saturday, December the 1st. […] Nick DM’d Priyanka on Twitter, and their exchange launched the very beginning of Priyanka’s plan to make this Nick Jonas opportunity her forever b**ch”.

The piece has already been taken down, with the magazine’s editorial apologising for having published it in the first place: “Upon further editorial review, we found this story did not meet our standards. We’ve removed it and apologise”.

The article sparked a monsoon of Twitter backlash, with Nick’s brother, Joe, and his finacée Sophie Turner leaping to Priyanka’s defence:

Other netizens also expressed their disgust with the piece, with some calling it “racist” and “sexist”:

…while others said that the author didn’t even bother to look at Chopra’s achievements before calling her a “scam artist”:

The couple married on 1 December in India, with spectacular three-day wedding celebrations, including a traditional Hindu ceremony.
