It's not even in my stratosphere.

Indian designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee gave a sneak-peek into Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas' Indian wedding.

The website, a part of NY magazine, deleted the article the next morning with an apology.

In freakish news, The Cut - online branch of New York Magazine - have apologised for a weird article which labelled Priyanka Chopra a "scam artist" for her recent wedding to Nick Jonas. The couple had a short courtship, after which they chose to tie the knot on December 1 and 2 in a Christian and Hindu wedding ceremony.

After Nick's brother Joe Jonas and future sister-in-law, Sophie Turner also stepped up to condemn the piece, the site took down the article and published an Editor's note on Twitter that said, "Upon further editorial review, we found this story did not meet our standards". @TheCut should be ashamed to have someone write such evil words.

Sophie too wrote: "This is wildly inappropriate and totally disgusting". Sonam tweeted, "For a publication that "shows women's what they are made of" @TheCut has a lot to answer for".

According to the report in Hindustan Times, Priyanka has responded to the article saying she did not want to react to such "random things". It reeks of envy and bitterness. We want you to know that we hear you and we're sorry. There is no good explanation for this other than human error and poor judgement. In one photo, we witness the nervous Priyanka while in the other, we see both Priyanka and Nick indulging in fun and laughter while exchanging the garlands. "We've removed it and apologize".
