    ABC drama “Quantico” star Priyanka Chopra and US singer Nick Jonas just got married in India, the actress's motherland, after dating for a few months.

    The Cut, owned by New York Magazine, took a swing at Priyanka Chopra and questioned her romantic relationship with singer Nick Jonas, having called the Indian actress a “global scam artist”.

    "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", the author wrote.

    The author of the article, titled “Is Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas’s Love for Real?”,  assumed that Chopra's marriage to Jonas is purely a publicity stunt:

    “That’s right: Nicholas Jonas married into a fraudulent relationship against his will this past Saturday, December the 1st. […] Nick DM’d Priyanka on Twitter, and their exchange launched the very beginning of Priyanka’s plan to make this Nick Jonas opportunity her forever b**ch”.

    The piece has already been taken down, with the magazine's editorial apologising for having published it in the first place: "Upon further editorial review, we found this story did not meet our standards. We've removed it and apologise".

    The article sparked a monsoon of Twitter backlash, with Nick's brother, Joe, and his finacée Sophie Turner leaping to Priyanka's defence:

    Other netizens also expressed their disgust with the piece, with some calling it "racist" and "sexist":

    …while others said that the author didn't even bother to look at Chopra's achievements before calling her a “scam artist”:

    The couple married on 1 December in India, with spectacular three-day wedding celebrations, including a traditional Hindu ceremony.
