After much criticism, The Cut has deleted the controversial article on Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas. The article was taken down after it received widespread criticism for the deliberate poor light in which the actor was portrayed.
The initial article which was headlined “Is Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas’s Love for Real?” started 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.
An earlier story about Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas did not meet our standards. We’ve removed it and apologize https://t.co/DkcOatMV2z

After a few hours, some changes were made to the article but now the website has pulled it down completely.
The editor’s note on the website says, “Upon further editorial review, we found this story did not meet our standards. We’ve removed it and apologize.”
As soon as the article was published, celebrities and fans started criticising the writing of the distasteful piece and many even called it ‘sexist and racist’.
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! https://t.co/bmbbX7LrAT

“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.” I think we can all agree that this piece is in such bad taste https://t.co/atjyNGbdNQ

This is wildly inappropriate and totally disgusting. Very disappointed that The Cut would give anyone a platform to spew such bullshit. https://t.co/iYKaifKJP6
