The writer of The Cut magazine has apologised to Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas for an article, which questioned the newlyweds relationship.
The controversial piece written by Mariah Smith accused Chopra of defrauding Jonas into a relationship and branded her a “global scam artist”. The article was titled “Is Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas’ love for real?” The article caused outrage amongst their fans and Chopra’s industry friends. It was forced to be taken down, with an apology by the magazine saying, “An earlier story about Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas did not meet our standards. We’ve removed it and apologize.”
Smith has now personally apologised to the couple with a tweet, “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 in the week, Chopra reacted saying, “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.”
