  • Mindy Kaling apologizes to Stephen Colbert for bra she was wearing when he walked in on her changing

    During The Late Show with Stephen Colbert Wednesday, the host paused the show to apologize for an incident that happened between him and guest Mindy Kaling before the taping of the show. And after bantering back and forth about who was actually going to bring it up, Kaling gave us the naked truth. She said that she was backstage getting changed and was in just a pair of pants and her bra. And that’s when Colbert came in - to the room and the story. “And I don't usually do this. I usually wait til the guests are in the wings,” Colbert said. “But I thought I would just go, ‘hey have a great show.’ So I popped the door open. I knocked, but I did that knock and pop.” The pair have worked together over the years and are clearly pretty close. So perhaps that’s what made it all the more surprising that she was the one who was feeling regretful after the “knock and pop” happened. “I just thought the whole time like, ‘I wish I had worn a sexier bra.’ Because it was like, you know, he works hard,” Kaling said, gesturing toward Colbert, and getting a big laugh from the audience.

  • Daniel Dae Kim, Mindy Kaling and More Denounce Atlanta Area Mass Shooting: ‘Enough is Enough’

    Hollywood’s Asian/Pacific Islander community reacted in shock and horror by the news of a mass shooting at three Atlanta area massage parlors that have left at least 8 people dead, including 6 Asian women. A 21-year-old suspect is in custody and a motive has not yet been established. “The race of the person committing the crime matters less than the simple fact that if you act with hate in your heart, you are part of the problem. And to those with the power to help and yet sit idly by, your silence is complicity,” tweeted Daniel Dae Kim, who added the hashtag #StopAsianHate. “The targeting of our Asian brothers and sisters is sickening, but not surprising given the normalizing of anti-Asian hate speech in the past year. We have to #StopAsianHate, enough is enough!” echoed Mindy Kaling.

Still much we don’t know, but it’s clear to me that the shooter specifically targeted Asian women. Praying for the victims’ families, and for my Asian sisters. Action to follow,” added Simu Liu, the lead in Marvel’s upcoming “Shang Chi.” Since the start of the pandemic, nearly 3,800 incidents of violence, discrimination or other forms of harassment were reported to Stop AAPI Hate, a reporting center that tracks hate incidents against Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders. There were a total of 1,691 incidents reported in California, representing nearly 45% of all reported incidents. And of those who reported incidents, 68% identified as women. “The reported shootings of Asian American women on Tuesday in Atlanta is an unspeakable tragedy – for the families of the victims first and foremost, but also for the AAPI community — which has been reeling from high levels of racial discrimination,” Stop AAPI Hate tweeted on Tuesday night. “Few details have been released, including whether or not the shootings were related or motivated by hate. But right now there is a great deal of fear and pain in the Asian American community that must be addressed.” Check out more responses from Hollywood’s Asian/Pacific Islander community below: Three days ago, the leader of the House GOP called it the “China Virus” again.
