Twitter Outraged Over Article Labelling Priyanka Chopra 'Global Scam Artist'

Joe Jonas and fiancée, Sophie Turner, fired back after their new sister-in-law, Priyanka Chopra, dealt with accusations of being a scam artist. The website published a freakish article with the headline "Is Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas's Love for Real?". There was strong uproar as the writer accused Priyanka of being a "global scam artist" and that Nick married her against his will.

Following the backlash, the website, part of New York Magazine, removed the article and apologised, "The whole piece missed the mark".

When asked to comment on it during an event in Delhi on Wednesday night, Priyanka said, "I don't even want to react or comment". It's not even in her stratosphere. "These kinds of random things can't disturb it", the Quantico star told local media.

Family and friends of the couple including her in-laws Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner, immediately took to Twitter to shame the publication for the piece.

As soon as the article appeared on internet, several artists responded in angst, calling it "inappropriate", "disgusting" and "sexist". What Nick & Pri have is Beautiful Love. "Very disappointed that the Cut would give anyone a platform to spew such bulls - - t". Also it's written by a woman which is so sad.

Bollywood diva turned global icon, Priyanka Chopra got married to American pop singer Nick Jonas on December 01 and 02 at Jodhpur's Umaid Bhawan Palace. On December 1, they had a Christian wedding, and on December 2, they had a Hindu wedding ceremony. There is no good explanation for this other than human error and poor judgment.

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".
