Priyanka Chopra's mother Madhu Chopra has responded to the article published by The Cut which called the actress "a global scam artist" and accused Priyanka of tricking Nick Jonas into marrying her when all he wanted for a fling. Madhu rubbished the now-deleted article, deeming it "idiotic" and incapable of impacting the happy space her family is in right now.

Speaking to Filmfare about the piece, she said, "It is a happy phase for our family. I am happy that my daughter is married to someone she truly loves. I don't want to give publicity to those fools. There are some donkeys who do anything they feel like, but their actions don't affect us."

Jonas and Priyanka got married in an elaborate five-day extravaganza in Jodhpur on 1 December.

At an event in New Delhi, when Priyanka was asked what she thought of the article, she said, "I don’t even want to react or comment. It’s not even in my stratosphere. I’m in a happy place at this moment. These kind of random things can’t disturb it."

Soon after the article was published and shared on social media, celebrities and readers all across the globe termed it a hatchet job aimed to demonise a successful South Asian woman, not to mention its clearly racist undertones.

The article was pulled down by The Cut after the widespread criticism.
