Concerned as well as unhappy fans took to social media as Nick Jonas of the Jonas Brothers posted a photo of himself with a cigar. The photoshoot was for an American magazine named Cigar Aficionado, famous for its articles about various brands of cigars around the globe. The 26-year-old singer, songwriter, and actor is the first person under 30 to hold a cigar on the cover of Cigar Aficionado.
However, aggrieved fans commented on his Twitter and Instagram posts saying smoking is injurious for his health, there is nothing cool about smoking, he should not be promoting smoking, and some fans even pointed out his health conditions. Nick Jonas was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes when he was just 13. Hence, fans were outraged to see him holding a cigar. Things took a more serious and drastic turn when some fans pointed out that his wife, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, has Asthma and it is insensitive of him to smoke in front of her. The couple got married last year in December, and just a few weeks before their wedding Priyanka made a public appeal requesting people to not burst crackers during Diwali, the grand festival of Hindus in India. During this appeal, Priyanka shared her struggle with Asthma from a young age.
Hence, fans of both, Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Nick Jonas stormed on to social media to reprimand Nick Jonas. A few fans reminded him of his fan base, which consists mostly of teenagers and youngsters, and how he could be a bad role model because of this photoshoot. They didn’t want him to be a bad influence on his fans. However, amidst all these passive, aggressive, and furious comments, some fans made sure Nick Jonas doesn’t get too much hate for a mere photo shoot. They congratulated him for his cover feat, asked him to ignore the trolls, and commented about his handsome appearance. Nick Jonas definitely has a range of fans.
