TheCut removes controversial Priyanka Chopra article, issues apology

Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas

Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas

Priyanka Chopra was not messing around when she told Vogue that people would need a vacation after their wedding.

Meantime, Nick Jonas was cast as a hapless groom "blinded by love" and unable to see through his bride's supposed machinations.

Priyanka also introduced Modi to her brother-in-law Joe Jonas and his fiance "Game Of Thrones" actor Sophie Turner. "Very disappointed that The Cut would give anyone a platform to spew such bullsh*t".

This is wildly inappropriate and totally disgusting. @TheCut should be ashamed to have someone write such evil words. The article on Priyanka was sexist, racist and disgusting.

The earlier version of the article read, "Priyanka: She is a modern-day scam artist, in my opinion".

Keeping in touch with her roots and the Indian wedding traditions, Priyanka decorated her hands in handsome henna designs and wore an intricately designed mangalsutra at her wedding. Priyanka is 11 years Nick's senior. "We've removed it and apologize".

All that remains on the story's page is an editor's note: "Upon further editorial review, we found this story did not meet our standards".

Indeed, the article is littered with racist and sexist connotations - Chopra's so-called crime of wanting to live the "high life" and earning money is something that every white celebrity in America is guilty of.

On Twitter, where Sonam led the charge, Mariah Smith was tagged to comments such as: "The sexism, racism and xenophobia really jumped out". She wanted the longest veil in the world and she got that. I hope you do some soul-searching.
