Priyanka Chopra was called a 'global scam artist' by a written piece in The Cut, an offshoot of the New York Magazine. The piece, titled 'Is Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas' Love for Real?'
In the piece, writer and comedian Mariah Smith proposed that while Jonas was only looking for a “fling” with Hollywood’s latest “It woman”, instead he “wound up staring at a life sentence with a global scam artist”. She speculated that Chopra, a Bollywood superstar with millions of social media followers, who has positively crossed over to Hollywood with her lead role on ABC’s Quantico, was somehow using Jonas for her own gain.
When Priyanka was asked about this conjecture at an event in Delhi last night, she said calmly, "I don't even want to react or comment. It's not even in my stratosphere. I'm in a happy place at this moment. These kinds of random things can't disturb it."
The journal finally took the article down, but not after people around the rondure expressed their shock and rage at its sexist and racist content. The Cut tried 'updating' it and toning it down, but it still did not cut it. After that, The Cut tweeted an apology saying, "An earlier story about Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas did not meet our standards. We've removed it and apologize." The same lines greet a reader on the link to the article too now.
Well, it seems like people are not able to digest the fact that movie stars like Priyanka and Nick are in a better place and are in love for real.
