    Watch A Hilarious Actress Shut Down People’s Body-Shaming Comments About Her Outfits

    Indian-American actress, producer, and writer Mindy Kaling gets called a lot of things, but “brave” shouldn’t be one of them, according to her. She talks to Jimmy Kimmel about backhanded compliments on her weight and why she chooses to wear the clothes she does. Then she gives us a bit of realtalk about how amazing her job and career are so we don’t need to pity “Mindy Kaling the sea monster” (if the tabloids had their way!).

    These are the kinds of facts that remind me how strong the confident women in my life are, and how unfairly difficult that has been for some of them to achieve, given how many parts of society seem to be determined to make them feel awful about themselves all the time.
