In her article, Mariah called “Priyanka’s indulgences and what she views as necessities speak volumes to her personality and what she’ll do, or think she needs to do, for her career….” “Priyanka and Nick are finding ways for their ‘love’ make them money – circumventing the methods used by the celebrities of yore, who stuck to selling their wedding or baby photos to magazines,” the article added.
The article got widespread backlash from actors like Sonam Kapoor and Swara Bhasker among others. Following the backlash, The Cut withdrew the article issuing apology.
