An earlier story about Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas did not meet our standards. We've removed it and apologise. - The Cut

The article suggested that Priyanka was a modern-day scam artist and that Jonas had been forced to get into a frau relationship against his will. The writer of the piece, Mariah Smith and the magazine were strongly attacked on Twitter. Among those who tweeted was actor Sonam Kapoor Ahuja who commented, "For a publication that 'shows women what they are made of' The Cut has a lot to answer for. The article on Priyanka Chopra was sexist, racist and disgusting. Also it's written by a woman which is so sad. It reeks of envy and bitterness."

The article also played down Priyanka's achievements and projected Jonas as a man "blinded by love" who wanted 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."

One person attacked the writer saying, "You're so mad that a deserving Indian woman found someone who values her worth. The one time a South Asian woman is thriving in Hollywood after working so hard, she gets called a scammer. I hope you do some soul-searching." While another comment read: "Forget petty. This piece is problematic and embarrassing."

Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas' three-day wedding celebration ended over the weekend. On Tuesday, a reception for the newlyweds was hosted in New Delhi.
