Celebrities are coming to the defense of Priyanka Chopra after an article was published by a US magazine that accused her of scamming her husband Nick Jonas into marriage. Chopra and Jonas tied the knot over the weekend in two very emotional ceremonies, followed by a very heavy media coverage.

The article, we are talking about, was published in the US’ ‘The Cut’ magazine and it was written by Mariah Smith. In the piece, the author calls Priyanka a ‘global scam artist’ whose PR machinery was on the lookout for a romance for her. The writer also suggests that Priyanka plans to break Nick’s heart and that he simply wanted ‘a fling’ with an older woman but is now caught up in a ’life sentence’, and it’s also advising him to run away on the horse he arrived at his wedding on.

The writer shamed Chopra for buying expensive things and said that their relationship doesn’t make sense as Nick would want to stay a bachelor at 26 while Priyanka would be looking to settle down at 36.

Bollywood actress Sonam Kapur called the piece racist and sexist and disgusting for criticizing Priyanka’s wedding to American singer Nick Jonas.

“For a publication that “shows women’s what they are made of” @TheCut has a lot to answer for. The article on @priyankachopra was sexist, racist and disgusting. Also, it’s written by a woman which is so sad. It reeks of envy and bitterness. @mRiah shame on you!,” Sonam wrote in her tweet.

Sophie Turner slammed the ‘disgusting’ story too, saying:”This is wildly inappropriate and totally disgusting,” Turner echoed on her account. “Very disappointed that The Cut would give anyone a platform to spew such bullshit.”
