Mindy Kaling: I’m NOT Republican
11:53 am, September 19th, 2013
Mindy Kaling is clearing up some confusion about her politics after a widely spread report said she was Republican.
The writer-actress set the record straight after an article on Salon entitled “Republican Mindy Kaling Brings Gun-Rights Humor to Her Show” mistook a joke on “The Mindy Project” and a spoof section in her book as evidence of personal political conservatism.
When a reporter tweeted, “I didn’t know Mindy Kaling is a Republican,” the star replied, “I’m not, it is bewildering!”
Asked to clarify, Kaling wrote, “Yeah, it’s like assuming Alec Baldwin has Jack Donaghy’s politics or something. It is so weird and funny to me and my staff.”
Famously liberal in real life, Baldwin portrayed arch-conservative Donaghy on “30 Rock.”
When a second reporter tweeted that the original story seemed to misunderstand a gag on “The Mindy Project,” Kaling responded, “I’m glad you saw that too! None of it’s true, but I kind don’t want to entertain it cuz it’s ridiculous.”
