The Cut writer, Mariah Smith has publicly apologised just married couple Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas for her ‘racist’, ‘ageist’, ‘sexist’ article.

On Wednesday, US magazine, The Cut removed their article titled “Is Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas’ love for real?” amid receiving backlash from numerous reader. After that, the author of the piece, Mariah Smith, who termed Priyanka as a “modern day scam artist” also sent an apology to the newlyweds.

“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,”  Smith wrote on Twitter.


In Mariah Smith’s writing, the article implied that the American singer has a “fraudulent relationship against his will” and carried an implicit message of racist and sexist.


A central point in Mariah Smith’s article read: “All Nick wanted was a possible fling with Hollywood’s latest It Woman, but instead he wound up staring straight at a life sentence with a global scam artist. Even more upsetting, she’s a scam artist who never even took the time to make sure he was comfortable riding a horse before arranging for him to enter their wedding ceremony on horseback.”

However, after the article was published, many celebrities include Joe Jonas and his fiancé, Game of Throne actress Sophie Turner come to defence of Priyanka.


Sonam Kapoor was one of the first Bollywood actresses who raised her voice about the article.

“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 expressed her rage.

Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas took the nuptials vow at Umaid Bhawan Place in a Christian ceremony and Hindu ritual in respect for their diversity of cultural background.
