Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas's wedding was a celebration of not just two persons but like two cultures tying the knot.

Amidst all the blessings and wishes being showered on the newly-wed couple, they also had to endure criticism regarding their age-gap of 10 years and also for making their wedding a lavish affair. Things turned little extreme when The Cut published an article raising questions on the extent of realism of their marriage.

Mariah Smith, a columnist of The Cut published an article that went with the headline-"Is Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas’s Love for Real?"

"Nicholas Jonas married into a fraudulent relationship (with Priyanka Chopra) against his will this past Saturday, December the 1st, and I’ll tell you why," wrote Smith.

She went on calling the former Miss World and Bollywood super star a "global scam artist" who tricked the naive and popular American pop star to marriage when the latter just hoped for a fling with her.

She added that 'dating' is just like a job for Priyanka and her team kept searching suitable guys whom she could date. She didn't even spare Nick when she wrote about his "interest in older women."

Although she didn't mention why she held such opinion about the star couple, her scathing and sexist remarks put her into a swirl of criticisms.

Fans and many stars from B-town slammed Smith for her article and expressed their disappointment with The Cut for publishing such content.

While Nick was furious about the matter, his brother Joe Jonas and sister-in-law and The Games of Throne fame Sophie Turner lashed out at Smith and The Cut on Instagram.

Joe posted: “This is disgusting. @TheCut should be ashamed to have someone write such evil words. What Nick & Pri have is Beautiful Love. Thank u, Next.”

Sophie wrote: “This is wildly inappropriate and totally disgusting. Very disappointed that The Cut would give anyone a platform to spew such bullshit.”

In an interview with Sunday Times Priyanka revealed that both of her families were utterly disappointed and enraged by the article. "I didn't comment on it at the time. But I went up to the hotel room to find Nick, Joe (Jonas), Sophie (Turner) and my mum (Madhu Chopra) furiously responding to the article. They were like, How dare they? I thought, I'm having a great moment, nothing is going to burst my bubble," she said as quote by DNA.

The Quantico actress's mother also said that both the Chopra and Jonas families were in their happy phase and they didn't want to get "disturbed by such idiotic things."

Facing a lot of backlash from the readers, fans and film fraternity, The Cut deleted the post and apologized. Mariah Smith also took to twitter to apologize the couple and the readers for apparently putting the actress into a deliberate low light. She tweeted, "I want to sincerely apologise to Priyanka Chopra, 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."
