UN­KIND CUT: Sorry, writer tells Priyanka, Nick

The Free Press Journal - - MUMBAI -

MUM­BAI: Three days af­ter re­ceiv­ing se­vere back­lash for her ar­ti­cle on Priyanka Cho­pra and Nick Jonas, the writer of The Cut, an Amer­i­can mag­a­zine, apol­o­gised to the newly-weds.

The ar­ti­cle, which was pub­lished days back, sparked rage across so­cial me­dia, af­ter it called Priyanka a 'global scam artist' and ac­cused her of 'de­fraud­ing' Nick into a re­la­tion­ship.

Tak­ing to Twit­ter, Mariah Smith (writer) took full re­spon­si­bil­ity of the ar­ti­cle and wrote an apol­ogy to the cou­ple and the read­ers.

"I want to sin­cerely apol­o­gise 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, The Cut also tweeted an apol­ogy say­ing, "An ear­lier story about Priyanka Cho­pra and Nick Jonas did not meet our stan­dards. We've re­moved it and apol­o­gize."

Sup­port­ing their brother and sis­ter-in-law, Nick's brother Joe Jonas and his fi­ancée So­phie Turner also slammed the pub­li­ca­tion.

Joe wrote, "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 tweeted, "This is wildly in­ap­pro­pri­ate and to­tally dis­gust­ing. Very dis­ap­pointed that The Cut would give any­one a plat­form to spew such bull­shit."
