Turner and Jonas took a stand and fought back against controversial comments made about their sister-in-law, actress Priyanka Chopra. New York magazine’s The Cut published an op-ed that said the Priyanka Chopra and her new husband Nick Jonas “married into a fraudulent relationship.”

The author of the piece, Mariah Smith, claimed Chopra is a “global scam artist” who convinced Nick Jonas to marry her. Smith wrote that Chopra’s relationship with Jonas was motivated by her desire to boost her career, and not genuine love. “Nicholas Jonas married into a fraudulent relationship against his will this past Saturday,” wrote Smith.

Joe Jonas took to Twitter to express his disappointment with the article: “This is disgusting. @TheCut should be ashamed to have someone write such evil words. What Nick & Pri have is Beautiful Love. Thank u, Next,” he tweeted. Turner also tweeted, saying, “this is wildly inappropriate and totally disgusting…”  New York magazine later apologized, and the article was deleted.
