The article called the actress a "global scam artist" and has since been deleted, but not before Joe Jonas and his fiancée Sophie Turner tweeted their thoughts on the "bulls**t."

As OK! readers know, the Bollywood star and "Jealous" singer tied the knot in India last weekend, after only being engaged for four short months. Their nuptials included a days-long celebration with two ceremonies and many traditional Indian pre-marital parties for both families.

In The Cut's critical piece, the author took aim at the newlyweds, specifically calling the bride a "modern-day scam artist." According to screenshots captured and published online, the writer also said, "At times, marriage can be a beautifully wonderful union that warms even the coldest of hearts, but sadly, this union evokes no such feeling."

"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," the post read. It ended, "Nick, if you're reading this, find that horse and gallop away as fast you can!"

The bride's new brother-in-law wasted no time condemning the piece, "This is disgusting. @TheCut should be ashamed to have someone write such evil words," he tweeted. "What Nick & Pri have is Beautiful Love. Thank u, Next."

Sophie, who was one of Priyanka's bridesmaids, was right behind her fiancé and tweeted, "This is wildly inappropriate and totally disgusting. Very disappointed that The Cut would give anyone a platform to spew such bulls**t."

The post was later updated so that the words "scam artist" were edited out, and it was ultimately deleted all together. The Cut also tweeted an apology on their official Twitter account. "An earlier story about Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas did not meet our standards. We've removed it and apologize," it read.
