Recently, an international magazine, The Cut.com had published an article questioning Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas’ wedding.
The author of the article, who was a woman, accused Priyanka of cashing on her ‘fraudulent relationship’ with Nick ‘against his will’, indicating that the Amercian singer just a wanted a ‘fling’, not a marriage. The journo even called PeeCee as a global scam artiste.
Author of The Cut’s sexist article apologises
Soon after the news was published, it received backlash from Bollywood celebs like Sonam Kapoor and Sona Mohapatra among others, apart from million and zillion fans of the couple.
Due to the severe backlash, The Cut had to take down the article and issued an apology which read, “An earlier story about Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas did not meet our standards. We’ve removed it and apologize.”
And now, the author of the article Mariah Smith has issued an apology. She took to the micro-blogging Twitter and wrote, “I sincerely apologize to Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas and to the readers I offended and hurt with my words. I do not condone racism, xenophobia, or sexism. I take full responsibility for what I wrote and I was wrong, I am truly sorry.”

Earlier, when Priyanka was asked about this at an event in Delhi, she said, “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.”
