Just like how the Internet clobbered real person Chrissy Teigen for going out for dinner when she has a baby, Mindy Kaling's character on The Mindy Project is also expected to be at home with her kid at all times.
With people wondering how Fake Mindy dares to date when there's a baby at home, Real Mindy took to Twitter to call out those who criticize her character when they wouldn't see a problem if she were a dude.
Fans responded to the tweet with the usual responses of "SLAY!!!", "YAAAAAS" AND "Marry me," and also some stellar responses.
@mindykaling wait? do you mean Ross didn't have to explain where Ben was in all those dates he had in 10 years? Mindblowing— Lady Botona (@LadyBotona) May 25, 2016
@mindykaling My husband and I always joke that when the kiddos in shows are offscreen it's because the parents are letting them be "feral"— Ashley Schumacher (@AshleySchu) May 25, 2016
Not even fictional characters are immune to mommy-shaming. But luckily for Mindy Lahiri, Mindy Kaling's got her back.
