Many Indian and US digital outlets also took aim during a argumentative piece, spawning several rebuttals that called out a “xenophobic” tone.

Writing for a News Laundry, publisher Nisha Susan asked either a piece, created by Mariah Smith, was “drunk-published”.

“Or Mariah has friends though no editors. You can decide,” she wrote.

At Jezebel, a renouned US-based feminist website, writer Prachi Gupta epitomised a crux of a article: “After Chopra, portrayed as a cold, fame-obsessed foreigner, determined herself in India, she set her sights on success in America. Part of Chopra’s sheet to a top? A white man.”

She combined that a letter offensively played into “racist and sexist narratives” about women of colour.
