Living in super-liberal Los Angeles and killing it as one of the funniest characters in a hit HBO comedy didn't save Kumail Nanjiani from harassment by gloating Trump supporters on Friday night. The Pakistani-American standup comic, who plays Dinesh on Silicon Valley, was out having drinks with co-star Thomas Middleditch when the pair were accosted by two bros who said they were "fans."

It just gets worse from there.

Nanjiani's story, of course, is one of far too many like it since Trump's stunning election victory on Tuesday. Multiple outlets, such as the Independent, are collecting reports of racist and sexist abuse in the wake of that result. Be safe out there and report anyone who threatens you.
