In this Friday, Nov. 30, 2018 handout photo released by Raindrop Media, Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas celebrate during a mehendi ceremony, a day before their wedding, at Umaid Bhawan in Jodhpur, India. On December 1 was the Christain wedding and on December 2, the couple solemnized their wedding as per Hindu traditions. The couple speaks about tying the knot within months of dating one another.

Regarding the article, while speaking to HindustanTimes, Priyanka said she did not want to react to such "random things".

'The most special moment was when the curtains opened and I saw him at the altar...

A note on The Cut read: "Last night, the Cut published a post about Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra's relationship that shouldn't have gone up".

As you can bloody imagine, the backlash hit hard with Jonas' brother Joe Jonas and fiancée Sophie Turner ripping into the article on Twitter. While PeeCee looked attractive in a dress with a deep neck that showed off her stunning diamond mangalsutra, Nick looked suave standing by her side in a grey suit that he paired with a blue tee.

The Cut Is Getting Thrashed For Calling Priyanka Chopra A “Scam Artist”

Priyanka Chopra has a huge fan base around the globe and rightly so, she is one of the biggest stars the country has seen.

Sophie too wrote: "This is wildly inappropriate and totally disgusting. Very disappointed that the Cut would give anyone a platform to spew such bulls - - t".

Visibly shocked by the tone of the article, actress Sonam Kapoor has described it as "sexist, racist and disgusting". There is no good explanation for this other than human error and poor judgement. "We've removed it and apologize".

The piece has already been taken down, with the magazine's editorial apologising for having published it in the first place: "Upon further editorial review, we found this story did not meet our standards".
