Nick Jonas Criticized For Cigar Cover Story

Nick Jonas Criticized For Cigar Cover Story

Fans are criticizing Nick Jonas for "promoting" cigar smoking via a new cover story.

Earlier this week, Jonas took to to social media to share his new Cigar Aficionado cover. "First person under 30 to hold a cigar on the cover of one of my favorite magazines," he wrote in the caption. "So pumped about this one!"

That said, fans were quick to express their "disgust" and "disappointment" with his decision to endorse the activity, with some even going so far as to accuse him of encouraging "young kids to use cigars."

"Gross and irresponsible as a singer and a human raised knowing the health risks but okay," as one Twitter commenter said.

Others were worried for his health, asserting that it was harming his voice and writing things such as, "U r my favourite Nick, but i don't think smoking wuld do u good since u r a type 1 diabetic. Smoking is injurious to health and u shouldn't promote it."

Jonas has yet to respond to the backlash.
