The Cut apologizes for article calling Priyanka Chopra a ‘scam artist’

In freakish news, The Cut - online branch of New York Magazine - have apologised for a freaky article which labelled Priyanka Chopra a "scam artist" for her recent wedding to Nick Jonas.

The piece, by writer and comedian Mariah Smith, was in poor taste and came across as racist - targeting PeeCee heavily and presenting Nick as oblivious and blind sided by his love for her. After waiting patiently for a few days, Priyanka and Nick posted dreamy pictures and videos from their Christian and Hindu wedding and trust us, words fall short if we try to describe how wonderful they looked.

It made the case that Chopra - after becoming successful in India - had coldly set her sights on America, and bagging an American star. "Very disappointed that the Cut would give anyone a platform to spew such bulls - - t".

Priyanka Chopra looked breathtakingly lovely in a red Sabyasachi Mukherjee ensemble and we must say, it's hard to stop staring at her.

Twitter Outraged Over Article Labelling Priyanka Chopra 'Global Scam Artist'

According to the report in Hindustan Times, Priyanka has responded to the article saying she did not want to react to such "random things". I'm in a happy place at this moment. It reeks of envy and bitterness. "These kinds of random things can't disturb it", the Quantico star told local media. We've received dozens of messages from readers expressing their anger.

The article was pulled down and "The Cut" tweeted an apology, "An earlier story about Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas did not meet our standards".

The article also spoke of Priyanka and Nick's lavish wedding as it read, "Priyanka and Nick are finding ways for their "love" make them money - circumventing the methods used by the celebrities of yore, who stuck to selling their wedding or baby photos to magazines".

"The whole piece missed the mark. We've removed it and apologize", The Cut tweeted.
