A journalist, Mariah Smith of the American website, The Cut, made infamous for her piece questioning Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas’ marriage, has issued an apology to the couple and readers for her offensive and hurtful write up. The writer, who went as far as calling Priyanka a “global scam-artist” and implied that she married Nick with an ulterior motive – to get a foothold in Hollywood, took to her social media handle to “take full responsibility” for her piece and said, “I was wrong. I am truly sorry.” Her entire note read, “I sincerely apologize to Priyanka Chopra and 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.” This apology comes after the author of the article and the publication received severe backlash from the couple’s family, friends, fans and peers. Priyanka shared her views on the same, saying that didn’t want to react or comment and that it was not even in her stratosphere. She added that she is currently happy and that such random things couldn’t disturb her. Mommy Madhu Chopra’s comments on the article, mirrored that of PeeCee’s as she said that she didn’t want to give publicity to “those fools”. Calling them “donkeys” she slammed the portal saying their acts didn’t affect them.
