New York Mag Article Calls Priyanka Chopra 'Global Scam Artist' for Marrying Nick Jonas

The Priyanka Chopra-Nick Jonas wedding may have wound up but the buzz generated by the big fat Indian wedding refuses to die down not just at home but also in the US. Chopra, who has quickly become one of the most popular faces on American television following her successful spell as the lead of Quantico, seems to have stirred several fancies out of their slumber with her dramatic wedding photos and snippets.

However, while most people have congratulated the actress and Jonas and wished them a good life together, an article that was published recently by The New York Mag's The Cut has received widespread criticism for the deliberate poor light in which it portrays Chopra.

The article, headlined "Is Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas’s Love for Real?" starts by calling Chopra a 'scam artist' who allegedly tricked a naive and young Jonas into a lifelong commitment when all he really wanted was a fling.

"That’s right: Nicholas Jonas married into a fraudulent relationship against his will this past Saturday, December the 1st, and I’ll tell you why I think so," the article read. It went on to add: "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."

While the writer provides no basis for making such claims, she goes on to shower Chopra with sexist and ageist comments, belittling her career and work. She also seems to make light of Indian wedding customs and traditions and describes how Chopra thrives on undue indulgence and publicity.

The article also slams Jonas, commenting on his "interest in older women" and citing examples of the same. The writer goes on to vilify Chopra as a gold digger whose 'team' is constantly on the job of finding her eligible men to date and marry.

The article has spawned a lot of criticism on social media with many accusing it of being racist, sexist, baseless and in extremely bad taste.
