Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas

Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas are quite happy in their little space. They are enjoying marital bliss while making back-to-back public appearances. While fans and well-wishers are happy for Priyanka-Nick, others are spewing venom for no reason at all. Recently, The Cut magazine wrote a racist article on Nick and Priyanka calling the actress a ''modern-day scam artist''.

The article written by Mariah Smith was full of misogynist undertones. One of the portions read, ''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. Even more upsetting, she's a scam artist who never even took the time to make sure he was comfortable riding a horse before arranging for him to enter their wedding ceremony on horseback''. Later, the writer offered an apology on Twitter. "I want to sincerely apologise to Priyanka Chopra, Nick Jonas, and to the readers I offended and hurt with my words. I do not condone racism, xenophobia, or sexism. I take full responsibility for what I wrote, and I was wrong. I am truly sorry," she wrote.

Now, Priyanka Chopra's mom Madhu Chopra has reacted to The Cut article. She doesn't want to get affected during such a happy phase. According to a Filmfare report, calling it a publicity stunt, Madhu Chopra said, ''It is a happy phase for our family, and we don't want to be disturbed by such idiotic things. 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.”

Priyanka, too, isn't interested in commenting on the article. ''It's not even in my stratosphere. I'm in a happy place at this moment. These kinds of random things can't disturb it,'' she said at an event in Delhi.
