Indian celebrities like actresses Sonam Kapoor Ahuja and Swara Bhasker have criticised journalist Mariah Smith for writing a "racist" article about actress Priyanka Chopra and American singer Nick Jonas' wedding, and The Cut website for publishing it. Nick's brother Joe Jonas, and his fiancee — Game of Thrones actress Sophie Turner — also condemned the article.

"Priyanka: She is a modern-day scam artist, in my opinion. 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...," it read.

After the article got circulated on social media, it garnered huge flak from some of the members of Indian film fraternity. Sonam and Swara  expressed their disappointment on Twitter.

Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner tweeted their thoughts, saying:

The article was pulled down by The Cut after the widespread criticism. A message on the website read: Upon further editorial review, we found this story did not meet our standards. We’ve removed it and apologise.
