Magazine apologises for piece, attacked as racist, about actor’s marriage to Nick Jonas
New York magazine has deleted an article that labelled the actor Priyanka Chopra a “global scam artist” who had conned musician Nick Jonas into marrying her after it was widely panned, especially by Indian readers.
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.
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
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
ah yes, Priyanka Chopra, former Miss World, beloved by a billion, only brown actor to win mainstream recognition and roles in the US is definitely the one running a scam and taking advantage of-
